Gateway Pundit ‘s Jim Hoft, who has previously scooped the local, Trump-hating, Arizona Republic newspaper on issues relating to the ballot recount, headlines his report, “BREAKING – IT’S HAPPENING! Arizona Election Workers are Running Ultra-Violet Ballot Testing on Maricopa Ballots (VIDEO).”
The newspaper topped its biased coverage with this falsified header: “Arizona Senate audit gets off to shaky start, with rules finalized on the fly.”
This petulant coverage, filled with quotes from democrat operatives, a lawyer representing the democrat party who referred to the ballot auditors as “rogue actors,” and the audit itself as a “so-called audit,” is unworthy of a link. County Supervisor Steve Gallardo, the lone democrat on the five-member board busied himself filing a last-minute lawsuit in Maricopa County Superior Court Thursday night attempting to stop the audit.
The unnamed judge, possessing Solomon-like wisdom, issued an injunction stopping the audit until Monday, with the stipulation that the democrat party post a $1 million bond to cover the potential costs of the delay. The outfoxed dems conceded Friday they wouldn’t/couldn’t be coughing up that kind of cash, and the recount at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum proceeded as scheduled.
The audit, televised by nine separate cameras, can be viewed at AZAudit.org
To illustrate the democrat party’s disconnect with reality, County Chair, Raquel Teran issued a statement that said in part, “We are calling on Governor Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich to put an end to this madness and protect our election systems from conspiracy theorists.”
Ms. Teran has obviously forgotten that neither the Arizona Governor nor Attorney General take their marching orders from the democrat party. They are both Republicans.
