The Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan continues to distinguish themselves. You see, before there was the Fraudit, there was Prznint Stupid and his Stupidest Lawyer ™ Rudy Giuliani, and former failed-appointed senator Kelli Ward (now the TSKoA GOP Chairperson), pressuring the county supervisors, you know, who oversee elections.
Former President Trump, Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward and Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani tried to contact Maricopa County supervisors weeks after the 2020 election in an effort to get the county to change its election results, the Arizona Republic reported Friday.
In one text that Ward sent supervisor Clint Hickman on Nov. 13, she asked him to “at least get an independent computer expert” to see if the county had any issues with its ballot count, according to the Republic.
“Not someone who already works there,” she reportedly wrote. “These ballots can be counted manually, assuming nobody deleted the folder holding the ambiguous ballot scans. If the folder was deleted, federal data forensics teams could theoretically undelete it and perhaps track down the person who deleted it. What if election fraud was as easy as dragging votes from one folder to another?”
No mention of the winky emoji being used, but I’m only guessing. Not really.
“Following in the footsteps of Arizona’s Senate Republicans, Pennsylvania’s Republican-controlled Senate is considering an investigation into how last year’s presidential election was conducted, a quest fueled by former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims that fraud was behind his loss in the battleground state.”
