Republican Arizona state senators shared the findings of the Maricopa County presidential election audit during a hearing Thursday.
Following the 2020 presidential election, amid then-President Donald Trump's claims the election was "stolen" due to "voter fraud," the state senators decided to conduct the audit in order to validate the integrity of the county's election results.
Among the findings revealed during Thursday's hearing was the fact there was no record of 74,000 ballots received and included in 2020's election results ever being mailed out.In the presidential election, Joe Biden won Arizona by a margin of 10,457 votes, according to NBC News.
NOW I get why Maricopa County and Biden admin fought tooth and nail to prevent an independent audit. 74,000 absentee ballot mail-in records missing, 25K duplicates, voter rolls a mess, bleed throughs, tens of thousands of ballots on demand, admin passwords issues.
