Maricopa County election audit continues after Democrats balk at $1 million fee

The first day of an unprecedented hand recount of all 2.1M ballot cast by Maricopa County voters during the 2020 election ran into hurdles Friday. An Arizona judge ordered the Senate to ’pause’ its recount but only if the state Democratic Party, which asked for the halt, could post a $1M bond to cover any costs from the delay. Democrats refused the bond. The audit is expected to take months.

The biggest question to ask is why are the Democrats trying to block this audit? If they thought the vote was legit then allow the audit and help with it to ensure it is correct. These weird legal maneuvers are not how innocent people act.

The next question is... What happens if they did find fraud?

This whole thing is a farce. Seriously Cyber Ninja? Might as well have Frump run it in that case. But at least when they find nothing or he gets caught cheating (reported already that ballot counters had blue pens the first day specifically against Arizona voting laws but that changed after he was called out on it) you all will finally shut the F up about it.

Why do the democrats want a halt? And more importantly, where is the judge even considering it? ...sounds more like the judge saying "OK, ill halt the recount, but only after you pay me the money you promised"

A reporter from the Arizona Republic, Jen Fifeld, who attended the audit on Friday raised concerns that those examining the ballots could be in a position to alter them, noting that counting tables had blue pens on them. You are "supposed to only have red ink," she noted, because the machines that count ballots will accept black or blue ink as a legitimate vote.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan, about his previous tweets promoting the Stop the Steal movement. That, apparently, is irrelevant. “We’re not here to audit Mr. Logan’s opinions about anything,” Senate liaison Ken Bennett chided reporters. https://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/op-ed/laurieroberts/2021/04/23/cyber-ninjas-have-no-idea-how-secure-arizona-election-audit/7354216002/ Who, exactly, are the 150 people that will be counting the ballots? Logan says there will be three-person teams but he wouldn’t assure reporters that those teams each will be balanced to include a Republican, a Democrat and an independent.

A reliable user on 8Kun noted that Cyber Ninjas the firm conducting the audit works with the federal government. If no fraud is found, it must certainly be from this company’s deep state ties. If they find fraud, this must be a rouse to keep us from finding the real fraud in the states that actually mattered in the electoral college count.

The same party that just spent $1.9T and is talking about an even larger number is now pinching pennies? Shouldn't they be eager to prove the election legit? They would relish the chance to rub it in republicans faces, so why resist if you know you're right? Or, as the democrats say, "What do you have to hide?"

I love how everyone tries to stop this process. If joe won the state of Arizona fair and square, then this audit will show everyone "The Big Lie" is just...a lie. There shouldn't be any objections to insure the integrity of any election. They're gonna do it here in Fulton county Georgia next.

Why fight tooth and nail if there's nothing to hide. Maybe Biden won by 1 single vote but I know it's 100% impossible he got 80 million votes shenanigans definitely took place and yet maybe he did legit win by 1 vote but we should close every shady thing that took place. 1 dead person anywhere should have a vote counted not 1 illegal alien vote is to many, anyone voting twice should be jailed for an eternity. The safest way 1 vote 1 ID 1 thumb and finger print so EVERY VOTE IS LEGIT
