This is a sign of the times.
A finding of actual election fraud in Arizona Thursday was slapped with a Twitter warning: “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
How is this disputable? If votes were altered; that’s election fraud. And there is evidence that votes were altered in AZ. On what basis is Twitter, a social media platform, disputing this?
A Maricopa County Superior Judge Thursday allowed the state Republican Party to review a sample of 100 duplicate ballots. These are ballots that could not be electronically processed by the voting machine. Such ballots are reviewed and manually processed by election workers.
AZ GOP Chair Kelli Ward said Friday that one ballot was switched from Trump to Biden and one vote was simply taken away from Trump for no discernible reason.
Ward acknowledges this is a small sample size out of a total of about 1.7 million votes cast in AZ.
However, Biden beat Trump in AZ by only 10,457 votes, according to official results certified by state leaders Monday.
If two percent of the hundred duplicate ballots were altered, that percentage, expanded to the total pool of votes cast, could mean more than 30,000 ballots are fraudulent, which is more than enough to change the election results.
The GOP lawsuit is challenging AZ’s vote certification based upon a state law that allows voters to dispute election outcomes if they suspect misconduct by election officials, illegal votes or an inaccurate count. They are also pressing to verify the signatures on AZ ballots, arguing that GOP election watchers could not ensure the integrity of the process because they were stationed from 10 to 12 feet away.
Arizona law permits a challenge to the official canvass within five days but federal law states all election challenges must be resolved by Dec. 8.
