The game of chicken between the Maricopa County Supervisors and those who would defend our right to free and honest elections and I am happy to say that the good guys won. The Supervisors have agreed to allow Cyber Ninjas to examine the routers that will allow them to see who may have accessed the machines. They will also get to see the Splunk logs and the Dominion software.
I believe the Supervisors decided it would be best to cooperate before next Friday’s release of the audit information. The county did take steps to make sure it looked like this was a win for them, but it is really a humiliating defeat. The auditors will get everything they wanted and the only thing the county got was representation during the process, something they were offered on Day One. But, since it is now a joint operation, nothing will have to move to a different site.
Arizona Senate President Karen Fann shared this tweet, claiming victory.
Fann: HUGE win for the Az Senate today! Maricopa settlement gives us all the data needed to complete the review of the routers & splunk log to the most comprehensive election audit in history. We got everything we need and more. Maricopa County goes home with its tail between its legs
Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli told the Gateway Pundit that because since nothing has been moved, they can begin the process right away and there will be no chain of custody issues.
Former Arizona State Rep. John Shadegg will act as a middleman and provide oversight to ensure the evidence is secure.
Fann: Shadegg is the arbitrator. He will hire a couple of IT experts who will actually do the “hands on “ and CN will tell and ask them everything they need to know.
Conradson: Do you trust Shadegg to do the job right?
Conradson: Did the supervisors pick Shadegg or did you do a joint vetting process?
Fann: We jointly agreed
Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers also confirmed their win and shared the conditions of the agreement.
Rogers: Summary: We won. They dropped their $2.8 meaningless claim for the machine replacement. We get the routers and spunk logs. Cyber Ninjas has full access. Maricopa caved.
