AZ audit continued… Where do we go from here?

The Maricopa County audit resulted in more questions than answers. There were numerous criminal acts that were committed and it appears that the Arizona AG is poised to indict those involved. The findings indicate that other states need to be evaluated. South Carolina should be particularly in the spotlight as data from our state was allegedly contained on demo hard drives.
Overall, there were 57,734 ballots with major issues that were identified as part of the audit reports.

To wit, according to Patrick Byrne:

  • The day before complying with the subpoena, Maricopa deleted > 1 million election files (each deletion carries 1 federal and state charge);
  • What remained did not reconcile;
    • 255,326 Early Votes have no provenance (they just “appeared”) and another 284,412 have digital images that have been corrupted (with no viable explanation for how that might have happened);
    • There are at least 57,734 ballots with sourcing that is illegal (they were mailed to someone who actually moved out of state 10 years ago, but were voted anyway);
    • There are over 17,000 ballots which are simply photocopies (which is unambiguously illegal);

There were 15 other felonies whose impact on the ballots is impossible to quantify

If we turn a blind eye to all that, Biden wins by 10,800 votes. But if we acknowledge these inconsistencies, we see that Trump won by at least 5 times the margin of victory.

From the Cyber Ninjas report,

• 27, 807 ballots cast from individuals who had moved prior to the election;
• 9,041 more mail ballots returned and recorded than the official number sent;
• 3,432 more ballots cast than the list of people who show as having cast a vote;
• 23,344 people voted via mail-in ballot even though they showed as having moved and no one with that last name shows as living at that address;

  • 2,600 excess duplicate ballots;
  • 2,382 people voted in person after having moved out of the county;
  • 5,047 voted in more than one county for up to 5,295 votes;
  • At least one batch of 50 ballots were tabulated twice;
  • 255,326 Early Votes show in the VM55 that do not have a corresponding EV33 entry;
  • 282 votes from deceased;
  • 393 with incomplete names

Furthermore, it was found that:

• The state did not use the paper that was recommended by manufacturers and that could not be properly verified.
• The ballot printers were not calibrated
• Machines were connected to the internet and cybersecurity protocols were not followed at all. There were no security patches to the operating system since the original purchase (2 years prior to the election) and no antivirus updates were performed since purchase.
• There was intentional overwriting of the files and security logs

We hope that the Arizona AG acts swiftly as this would mean that eventual decertification of the election and possibly create momentum for other states with similar issues to follow suit—think GA and Wisconsin.
