Deep Dive: The Arizona Audit Revealed Much More Than Expected
The long-awaited results of the forensic audit in Maricopa County last week was a massive data dump. There was just too much information to really let it all sink in at once. As people continue reviewing the contents of the final report, they keep uncovering more examples of malfeasance.
We can say this with absolute certainty: The results in Arizona’s 2020 election are completely and permanently unknowable. It will be a mystery forever. Therefore, Joe Biden’s “win” in that state is invalid, and Arizona’s results should be decertified.
The media has become a caricature of itself by this point. They’re trying to gaslight people who are on the fence about the 2020 election, and to calm the amygdala of every liberal who was panicked about these audit results. Here’s a sampling of headlines.
Arizona Mirror: Arizona “audit:” A multitude of unsubstantiated claims and no proof of fraud.
Forbes: “Big Lie” election audits go on after Arizona.
Vox: Arizona finished its “audit.”
AZCentral: Arizona “audit” promoted doubt, not election integrity, analysts say.
Reuters: Truth is truth: Trump dealt blow as Republican-led audit reaffirms Biden win.
That Reuters headline is really a howler. As if the auditors somehow discovered a bigger gap between Biden and Trump after finishing their work. And what’s wrong with Forbes magazine? Wasn’t that magazine founded by a Republican who ran for president years ago? I also love the scare quotes they’re all using around the word “audit.” Stay classy, hot sidewalk garbage media!
These are obvious lies from the media. No sensible adult would believe these people. Just to recap, here are the numbers that received most of the focus over the weekend. Keep in mind that Joe Biden’s “victory” margin was 10,457 votes in Arizona.
The auditors discovered 17,126 people who double voted, or triple voted. They cast their mail-in ballot, and then they showed up in person and voted. That’s more than 1.5 times Biden’s alleged victory margin.
Another 57,734 ballots were discovered to have known critical issues. And those are separate from the 17,126 illegal double votes, bringing the total to 74,860 problematic ballots in Maricopa County’s 2020 election. Those numbers have received a lot of coverage so far.
But let’s go even deeper.
The auditors discovered that 23,344 people cast their ballots from their prior mailing address. Try to figure that one out. This finding caused the Maricopa County election swindlers to claim that the auditors are “staggeringly ignorant” and “intentionally misleading.” The supervisors actually claimed that this is legal under federal law.
Curiously, the supervisors did not cite which specific federal law allows this to happen. They’ve got me curious now, especially since there is no federal law for mail-in voting. Could you guys explain to all of us “staggeringly ignorant” rubes in MAGA hats how that works?
For example, if a voter moved from Phoenix to Wickenburg in Maricopa County and re-registered to vote at their new address, how did their ballot get sent to their prior mailing address? And how did they cast that ballot?
The postal service is not allowed to forward ballots to a new address. In fact, if a ballot comes back to the registrar’s office, that person is supposed to be removed from the voter rolls until they accurately update their registration. That’s under 52 U.S. Code § 20507(d). Notice that there’s an actual federal law that I can cite to make my case on that. What’s your excuse, Maricopa County?
And here’s an even more damning fact from the audit results: The auditors were unable to verify the identities of 86,391 people who voted in Maricopa County. The auditors checked the identities of every person who voted in Maricopa County based on their dates of birth, social security numbers, and other personally identifiable information that is available through public records over the internet.
Gee, I wonder why 86,391 people in a border state like Arizona would not have social security numbers, and yet voted in the 2020 election? I have an idea on that one, though. And there’s a federal law that covers it:
18 U.S. Code § 611(a) – “It shall be unlawful for any alien to vote in any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing a candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner.”
In case you’ve lost track, that’s 184,595 problematic, questionable, and illegal votes that were cast in Maricopa County that the auditors uncovered – compared to a 10,457-vote margin of “victory” for Biden. And we’re not even done going through all the numbers yet. Does that sound like the auditors “reaffirmed” Joe Biden’s win, as Reuters phrased it?
