The audit of the 2020 Presidential election in Maricopa County, Arizona, is still ongoing, as I mentioned in a previous post.
However, it appears that a segment of it was completed last week, and the results were announced.
In terms of the actual data, there was no evidence to imply that any issues occurred during the election, according to the investigation and the release from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.
According to Fox 10 Phoenix,
Their report said that the computers and ballot-counting machines in the county’s ballot tabulation center were never connected to the internet. In addition, there was no sign that any of the computer equipment in the county’s Office of Enterprise Technology, which provides computer support for all the huge county departments, was compromised.
In both cases, there was no evidence of “data deletion, data purging, data overwriting, or other destruction of evidence or obstruction of the audit,” the report said.
The county has repeatedly said since the November 2020 election that it was free and fair and that its systems and equipment were secure.
Gates repeated that on Wednesday and said the report from Shadegg was the latest in a long string of evidence that showed that the election was well run.
“Whenever impartial, independent, and competent people have examined the County’s election practices, they have found no reason to doubt the integrity of those practices,” said Gates, who is a Republican. “The Board of Supervisors remains committed to free and fair elections that conform to federal and state laws.”
In terms of the Arizona audit, I believe we can write this one up as a loss for Team Trump. I regret to say it, but I believe the Democrats were able to wiggle their way out of having the damning evidence destroyed or not discovered.
Keep in mind that this statement came from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, which is a biased anti-Trump group, so the news isn’t exactly surprising.
