Voting machines used in Arizona’s Maricopa County could now be inspected and seized, according to The Western Journal.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted,” Finchem said.
“I compliment Chairman Eddie Farnsworth, Senator Sonny Borrelli (Senate Whip), Senator Rick Gray (Majority Leader), Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita, and Senator Vince Leach.”
“Each asked thoughtful, insightful questions that left no room for any conclusion [but] that a forensic audit is about the only move that will restore constituent confidence in our elections integrity.”
“The outcome of this hearing was a call by Chairman Eddie Farnsworth to issue subpoena’s to seize the machines.”
“A forensic audit is the likely next step. This is a huge development, and moves Arizona in the right direction to account for the many irregularities.”
Farnsworth said his goal is to “try and see if we can reinsert some confidence in our election process.”
“We hold and audit and we see what the outcome is.”
“And then we can put this to rest.”
“These hand counts are an independent audit,” Jarrett said.
“I do have a concern that the county is taking the position that it just can’t happen,” he said.
“There is a litany of white-collar crimes, digital crimes in the history of this country and this world of some very sophisticated people and the victims didn’t recognize it until some future time,” the state senator added. “I think it’s really, really dangerous for us to say, ‘It can’t happen.’”
“[n]othing’s 100 percent secure. If people want to cheat they’re going to cheat.”
