We just figured out who the Arizona Republican leader’s “auditors” remind us of, Larry, Moe, and Curly in that memorable black-and-white 1940’s show, The Three Stooges. It seemed as if the trio could never do anything right. They were just walking trouble. In a memorable video, they attempted to go ice fishing. What could go wrong? Apparently, everything, unless we consider winter under-water swimming an Olympic event.
The Vice reported:
“There’s incompetent, and then there are Arizona audit levels of incompetent.
‘The canvass, thousands of volunteers visited people’s homes to see if voting records matched up to the reality of the situation on the ground.’
The Administrator of the 8kun site, where QAnon continues to be alive and well, Ron Watkins wrote to his 415,000 followers:
‘The first domino has fallen. The official Maricopa Audit results are next. There is no precedent for where we stand today.
‘MARICOPA COUNTY MUST BE DECERTIFIED.’
This week Watkins was hyping the canvass saying he and Harris were “working closely” with others involved in the effort to sabotage the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
Proof? We do not need no stinking proof. The canvassers claimed that there were “ghost” voters — without evidence:
‘[There were] 173,000 votes missing or lost, while almost 100,000 other votes came from “ghosts” or residents who didn’t appear to exist.’
AZ Central reported:
‘The results of those efforts were published Wednesday, and the report made some startling—almost unbelievable—claims. It said that 173,000 votes were missing or lost, while almost 100,000 other votes came from “ghosts” or residents who didn’t appear to exist.’
Several GOP legislators and officials also used the fake canvass report as “evidence” that the election results should be decertified. One Data Guru tweeted:
‘I don’t even know what to say anymore…’
State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted.
‘Do we need any more evidence to finally recall the electors and decertify the election? Preliminary audit results & a private canvass. More evidence is coming but I already have seen enough. History will judge us well when we finally get 2020 right.’
Americans had a few thoughts about that:
‘I’m sure it’s an honest mistake. It’s not like there are any obvious signs that someone lives at this location like a massive front gate or something. Oh wait.’
A leader in the Stop the Steal movement Representative Mark Finchem has boasted QAnon theories:
‘There is already enough evidence to show clear and convincing fraud.’
Cyber Ninjas was the company that has been running the official audit and initially included a door-to-door canvass wrapped into its recount effort. They dumped the canvassing when the Department of Justice (DOJ) warned it would amount to voter intimidation:
‘These people are wildly incompetent. It took me all of 2 minutes to confirm that this address is a single family residence using the Maricopa Assessor’s website & match the owner’s names with voter registration records. Imagine publishing this without checking first.’
But that didn’t stop Liz Harris, whose Voter Integrity Project has been knocking on people’s doors since last December. She said:
‘But then a magical think(sic) happened…
‘Working forward from the date of NC’s county canvasses, Jerry discovered that the number of SDR voters in Bladen had grown more than once. Starting at 255 on Nov 13, another 63 were added after the canvass. The next day, the elections were certified and another 77 SDR voters materialized.
‘To recap, from the date of county-level certifications (ten days after Election Day) to the date of the statewide certification (20 days after Election Day), Bladen County’s number of SDR voters increased by over 80 percent, from 255 to 443.’
