BREAKING: Maricopa County 2020 election audit report to be made public this Friday

Moments ago, the Republican Party of Arizona tweeted “Tune in for an update on the agreement between the Arizona State Senate & the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors regarding audit subpoenas for routers and other data. Official report coming THIS Friday!”

According to CBS News “The long-delayed report about the partisan review of ballots cast in Maricopa County, Arizona, during the 2020 election will be made public at a hearing scheduled for Friday, September 24, according to a spokeswoman for Arizona Senate Republicans, who had ordered the review. ”

“The report will be presented on the Senate floor and will be open to the media. Although Arizona’s election results were already certified, six months ago, the Republican-controlled state Senate in Arizona undertook a full hand recount and review of the ballots and voting machines in Maricopa, the state’s largest county,” the report continues.

Republican Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann announced Friday “Under threat of losing hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue sharing, today Maricopa County settled with the State Senate, in a victory for election integrity and the Arizona taxpayer. The agreement sets up a Special Master paid for by the County, who will get the answers to the questions the Senate has had concerning the routers and splunk logs used in the 2020 election. Former Congressman John Shadegg will serve as the Special Master, working with computer technology experts.”

“The Senate will finally get the answers to questions asked for in subpoenas issued to the County months ago,” she continued.”

“In addition, the County has agreed to drop its notice of claim of $2.8 million to replace election equipment delivered to the Senate as required in the January subpoena,” Fann added. “Experts have told us there is nothng that has been compromised or damaged by the audit, and the Secretary of State failed to follow procedures regarding decertifying the machines. There is no reason taxpayers should be on the hook for purchasing unnecessary new election equipment. I look forward to getting our final questions answered and wrapping up the review of the election in Maricopa County”
