Maricopa Co. Officials Won’t Turn Over Routers for Election Audit

'The Senate Republican Caucus' audit of the Maricopa County votes from last November's election has no stopping point...'

(Headline USA) The ongoing election audit in Arizona has drawn national attention and a series of legal maneuvers, but now Arizona lawmakers may drop the hammer on county officials.

Arizona’s Senate, which has a Republican majority, called for an audit of the state’s over 2 million votes after questions surrounding voter fraud and mail-in ballots in the November election.

Arizona’s swing state status made the state’s electoral college votes crucial in the 2020 presidential election.

“The Senate Republican Caucus’ audit of the Maricopa County votes from last November’s election has no stopping point,” Penzone said. “Now, its most recent demands jeopardize the entire mission of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.”

He also said handing over the routers would hinder his efforts “to protect critical evidence, data shared between law enforcement agencies, protected private information and individual passwords, all of which could be used to the detriment of citizens and law enforcement infrastructure.”

Republicans argue that Democrats in the state are stalling and that they deserve answers.
