Arizona taxpayers could be on the hook for a $9 million bill after GOP subpoenas routers: report
On Monday night, Bill Gates, a Republican member of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, revealed on CNN that the Republican-controlled Arizona Senate has had Maricopa County officials served with a new subpoena seeking their routers for its audit of the 2020 election.
According to the Washington Post's Joseph Marks, that could run the bill associated with the audit, seeking evidence that Donald Trump had the 2020 election stolen from him, up to $9 million.
According to the technology analyst, "The state's already on the hook for roughly $3 million to replace the county's voting machines because of concerns the partisan firm conducting the audit, Cyber Ninjas, can't ensure the machines weren't infected with malicious software during the process. Now, Trump and his allies are pushing hard for the county to hand over routers that will cost an additional $6 million to replace if they similarly can't be trusted."
Imagine, blowing through millions of dollars and hundreds of hours just because some nutjob is spewing a bunch of gibberish.
