AZ: Maricopa County regime to spend $3 million on voting machines after GOP’s “audit” stunt

Source: Arizona Daily Star

“Arizona’s largest county approved nearly $3 million Wednesday for new vote-counting machines to replace those used in the 2020 election, which were given to legislative Republicans for a partisan review of the results. The GOP-controlled Maricopa County Board of Supervisors said the machines were compromised because they were in the control of firms not accredited to handle election equipment. … State Senate Republicans used their subpoena power to take control of Maricopa County’s voting machines after former President Donald Trump claimed without evidence that the 2020 election was rigged against him in Arizona and other battleground states.” [editor’s note: So far, AZ and GA have shown significant voting problems to be remedied, and TX and FL have pushed legislation, attempting to avoid future ones (much to Democrat horror in each case) – SAT] [editor’s note: And yet the evidence for these “significant problems” never seems to show up when the claims are challenged – TLK] (07/15/21)
