GOP Arizona Senate President Admitted In Email That She Didn't Believe Audit Would Uncover Fraud

Source: Newsweek

Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, admitted in a February email that she does not believe the widely criticized election audit of Maricopa County will uncover any widespread voter fraud.

Fann and Arizona Republicans have pushed forward the 2020 election audit—motivated by former President Donald Trump and his allies' baseless claims that there was widespread voter fraud. Local GOP officials in Maricopa County have repeatedly refuted these groundless allegations. Arizona also already carried out a hand recount, which reaffirmed President Joe Biden's victory over Trump.

"I cannot begin to explain how much I really hate this whole thing," Fann wrote in an early February email, which was released publicly along with hundreds of others by the Arizona Senate due to a public records request from American Oversight. Local newspaper The Arizona Republic first reported on the email.

"Personally I don't think we will find anything outside of the normal irregularities we have every election but am willing to go this extra mile if it puts these questions and concerns to rest," Fann continued.

Of course, the real goal is not really to find fraud, but to try to create a pretext to allow Republicans to disregard election results, seize power and bar people from even voting.

1. Even though it's the AZ Senate, people ask me why I am running for AZ House

Well, this wouldn't happen in the House because it would only take on GOP defection to destroy this, as the GOP has the majority in the AZ House 29-31. . .my seat is in a 56% Democratic district and will likely increase after reapportionment (my assumption is I will lose the Maricopa County section of my district and gain more in Pima County).

So, we in AZ need to work to get the Governor to flip since the GOP is running Kelli Ward, and get people like me elected into the State House so we have one house of the Lege.

Then all this voter suppression bunk dies!

2. If they don't uncover fraud, they will just have to keep counting until they do.

I want some of the sumbitches to audit Florida. Like we are immune to fraud and deception down here.

4. And then make up something or cast as much doubt

When no quantifiable evidence exists.

3. So what's this Kabuki dance going to cost the State of Arizona and its taxpayers?

In the end the only thing that can bring this to a halt is an accounting of $$ wasted.

AZ Voting Data Was Secretly Moved To MONTANA For ‘Review’
Arizona Republicans have handed over 2020 election material to their unqualified “auditor” and they can’t be bothered to make sure any of it is being properly safeguarded.
By NewsHound Ellen



The material secretly taken out of Arizona to an undisclosed location is from Maricopa County, which just happens to have gone for Biden over Trump in November. The Republicans' recklessness with the data is just breathtaking. It's almost as if they want it destroyed.

And then you come up with this dilly of a quote:

"I cannot begin to explain how much I really hate this whole thing," Fann wrote in an early February email, which was released publicly along with hundreds of others by the Arizona Senate due to a public records request from American Oversight. Local newspaper The Arizona Republic first reported on the email.

"Personally I don't think we will find anything outside of the normal irregularities we have every election but am willing to go this extra mile if it puts these questions and concerns to rest," Fann continued.

11. I hope she enjoys the legal costs...

when she gets sued next year by a WHOLE SHITLOAD of Biden/Kelly voters who lose their voter registrations due to her induced illegal voter purge.

FUCK EVERY FUCKING NAZI REPUKE IN THIS STATE.
