HOW ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU GROWN WEARY OF THE LIES AND HALF TRUTHS ABOUT FRAUD & THE GENERAL ELECTION?

HOW ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU GROWN WEARY OF THE LIES AND HALF TRUTHS ABOUT FRAUD & THE GENERAL ELECTION?

We just came back from Scottsdale where we have a vacation home. The news is full of the Arizona general ballot recount in Maricopa County. Arizona’s Maricopa County ballots, six months after the 2020 general election, are being examined and recounted by contractors working for a Florida-based company.  Former President Donald Trump claimed without evidence that his loss was marred by fraud in Arizona. Senate President Karen Fann, has ordered a recount. Fann used the Senate’s subpoena power to take possession of ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County. She turned all of it over to Cyber Ninjas, a small Florida-based cybersecurity firm owned by a Trump supporter who has promoted election conspiracies, to conduct an audit along with several subcontractors. Meanwhile the protests against the recount by the GOP-dominated Maricopa County Board of Supervisors were ignored by Fann. They labeled the audit as “a sham that’s spun out of the control”  Board Chairman Jack Sellers said Senate President Karen Fann is making an “attempt at legitimatizing a grift disguised as an audit.” Sellers was quoted as saying: “I know you all have grown weary of lies and half-truths six months after 2020 General Elections,”  That’s my question too. Aren’t you weary of this ridiculous game?
The Washington Post has reported:
“An Arizona Republican who heads up the county elections department that is the target of a GOP audit of the 2020 election results condemned former president Donald Trump for continuing to push false claims of electoral fraud months after his defeat and called his recent comments “unhinged.” Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer on Saturday called on Republicans to stop supporting Trump’s baseless claims of widespread fraud and slammed the former president for falsely accusing Maricopa County of deleting an elections database.

“This is unhinged,” Richer tweeted, adding that he was “literally looking at our voter registration database. Right now. We can’t indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country.”

According to the paper Maricopa County officials and Republican Gov. Doug Ducey have repeatedly certified Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 presidential election. He was the first Democrat in nearly 25 years to win the state. But that hasn’t stopped the auditors – led by a Florida firm whose founder has promoted baseless claims of election fraud – from continuing a review that has raised concerns from the Justice Department about whether the partisan audit is violating federal law.

How much longer will politicians continue to please Donald Trump’s ridiculous claims that he won the election with wasteful actions like this? I am weary of the lies and untruths.
