The Maricopa County Arizona Board of Supervisors has refused a second meeting in two days with the Arizona Senate to discuss concerns about the equipment and materials provided for an audit of the 2020 presidential election in the county.
“In your letter, you invite us to attend a meeting at the Arizona State Capitol on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, at 1:00 p.m., and you request that we bring Election Department officials who would have knowledge of our elections procedures,” they wrote in response to the request.
“We will not be attending,” they continued. “We will not be responding to any additional inquiries from your ‘auditors.’ Their failure to understand basic election processes is an indication you didn’t get the best people to perform in your political theatre.”
The board was indignant about accusations from the Senate that a database was missing, but auditors later reported that they found the database in materials from the board.
One way or another, the audit seems to have been delegitimized enough that it won’t be taken too seriously by anyone, whether it finds any irregularities or not.
