Friday, September 24, 2021

A monthslong hand recount of Maricopa County's 2020 vote confirmed that President Joe Biden won and the election was not "stolen" from former President Donald Trump, according to early versions of a report prepared for the Arizona Senate.

How much did this fraud cost the Az tax payers? I don't just mean what they paid cyberninjas but also when you include the time wasted, law suits and new new voting equipment.
Extraordinary waste thanks to the GQP. And this is what they want to do in other states too.

Other than the first $150,000 that was fronted by the Arizona taxpayers, the rest (an unknown amount) came from a number of pro-Trump and conspiracy-minded groups. It was probably in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

What can be said now except fools and their money are soon parted.

This isn't going to bode well for Governor Abbott. Trump will probably call him "a loser" and scratch his name off the possible cabinet position list when he becomes 'Der Fuhrer' in 2024.

Nothing changes for the Trumpites, except that the Cyber Ninjas are added to their paranoid belief system. They'll continue to catch COVID and die believing that Trump won.

Obviously they'll have to try harder to make things up. Much, much harder.

Now we have the explanation why this "audit" took so long. It must have been clear to the Ninjas early on that this would be a debacle.

These people will go into hiding, for their own safety.

The Ninjas must have considered long and hard about simply lying about these results. But they knew they would be pursued to the ends of the earth by those not Trumpites, and spend most of their remaining years in prison, hoping for a Trump pardon at his Second Coming.

As it is, I'm sure that the Right-wing death threats against them have already mounted into the hundreds.

Prison or death. Quite the choice. The Ninjas must have decided they can run fast.

MAGAt logic:

MAGAts purposely chose Cyber Ninjas because they felt their ineptitude would help conclude that Trump won.

Instead they show that Biden won.

Therefore, THEY MUST BE INEPT AND THIS PROVES TRUMP REALLY WON!!!

I am wondering what the copycat states will be doing about the corner they seemed to have backed themselves into.


Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia - how are those announced audits progressing?


Has fmr Pres Trump released a comment on this draft release, or might he be frantically working behind the scenes to change the final release version?

Not really.

The election officials in Arizona had certified that Pres Biden won the election in Arizona and fmr Pres Trump lost.

That is why it is true.

Their governors are probably going to get a hour long lecture from Trump on the necessity of micromanaging their audit.

It'll actually be funny watching GOP candidates double-down on this election fraud nonsense during general election debates, alienating that crucial 10 percent of swing voters they need in non-inbred states.

I suspect this will put little dent in their inanity-induced actions.

The GOP has shown an amazing ability to deny reality in favor of the lie-enabled alternate reality they have created.

Why should that alternate reality go away now?

Helping the stupid understand realigy is a pointless task. They can't or won't. Nothing can alter their distorted perception of reality, thankfully, those that dumb are a small minority. With help, many of the others so inflicted with Trumpism may actually still be reachable, I have Trumpiers in my family but they told me just recently they have gotten vaccinated.

Watch: Cyber Ninjas release findings of Arizona election review
ktar.com

...Nearly six months after they were hired by Arizona Senate Republicans to dig into the 2020 Maricopa County election, Cyber Ninjas were set to officially release their findings during a Friday afternoon meeting.

The big reveal is scheduled for 1 p.m. Arizona time (4 p.m. ET) in the Senate chambers in downtown Phoenix and is being livestreamed....

...1 p.m. Arizona Senate President Karen Fann has arrived in the Senate chambers. Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan, CyFIR founder Ben Cotton, and Randy Pullen have also arrived. Fann thanks her supporters and the 1,500 volunteers who assisted in the review process.

"This has never been about overturning an election," Fann said.

The Republican senator emphasized how the audit's goal was to maintain "election integrity" in Arizona.

True. It is, among other things, about the GOP trying to taint this and future elections.

If that were true, she would have never hired the clowns she hired to do the audit.

It is really funny how she is trying so hard to back-pedal since the "audit" apparently back-fired on her.

So now they really need to do a really real COMPLETE audit.

The after that comes the super duper completely complete ultimate audit.

I noticed that Rachel Maddow was very cautious about what she said about this leaked report, she did NOT say what was in it, just that it's insane, it's as in she thinks it might be a trap for the mainstream media.
