The Left tries to silence anyone who questions the integrity of an election. You’re only allowed to call foul if you’re a Democrat.
But Democrats are sweating bullets after this state sounded the alarm on election fraud.
Republicans have been dealing with the aftermath of the Midterm elections for weeks now.
The Red Wave everyone was expecting didn’t materialize, and conservatives were handed major defeats.
One of the most contested races was Arizona’s Governor’s race, and Democrat Katie Hobbs supposedly won a slim victory.
But all of that has been thrown into question now that the state’s Attorney General has demanded a report from Maricopa County election officials.
In a letter from Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, a top official cited evidence of “statutory violations” in the election, in which Hobbs, as secretary of state, overcame massive deficits in the polls.
There were widespread voting machine malfunctions in conservative areas of the state’s most populous county, which became a national joke when it took more than a week to count votes.
“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright in a Saturday letter to the county’s chief civil division attorney, Thomas Liddy.

Wright requested a comprehensive report on how tabulator and printer issues at about 60 Maricopa voting locations on Election Day were rectified, as well as a copy of each voting location’s Official Ballot Report, including any discrepancies and reasons. The machines were examined the day before the election, and no abnormalities were discovered, according to Wright’s letter.
Lake, who was leading in several surveys by double digits before into the election, has expressed doubts about the election’s integrity, saying, “Arizonans know B.S. when they see it.”
Her team has been collecting and tweeting statements from voters who claim they were turned away when they tried to vote, that their ballots were rendered faulty, or that their votes were incorrectly processed.
Wright’s letter mentions possible legal infractions in the manner poll workers handled votes that couldn’t be inserted into tabulators. According to widespread accounts, the ballots were collected separately and without sufficient protection.
“Maricopa County appears to have failed to adhere to the statutory guidelines in segregating, counting, tabulating, tallying, and transporting the ‘Door 3’ ballots,” Wright wrote.
“In fact, Maricopa County has admitted that in some voting locations, ‘Door 3’ non-tabulated ballots were commingled with tabulated ballots at the voting location.”
Wright quoted a sworn declaration from one election observer who said that non-tabulated ballots were placed in duffel bags and perhaps mixed with tabulated ballots.
The state has not yet formally declared a winner, however this is expected to happen early next month. The report, according to Wright, must be provided before election results can be properly validated.
“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,” Wright wrote in the letter.
“As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results – the Unit requests a response to the aforementioned issues on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State, which must occur on or before November 28, 2022.”
