Sellers: Senate’s election audit ‘bringing incompetence’

Posted

It’s clear the people hired by Arizona Senate leadership to supposedly bring integrity to our elections are instead just bringing incompetence.

At today’s briefing, the Senate’s uncertified contractors asked a lot of open-ended questions, portraying as suspicious what is actually normal and well-known to people who work in elections.
In some cases, they dropped bombshell numbers that are simply not accurate.

What we heard today represents an alternate reality that has veered out of control since the November General Election. Senate leadership should be ashamed they broadcast the half-baked theories of the “Deep Rig” crowd to the world today.

To Senate leaders I say, stop accusing us of not cooperating when we have given you everything qualified auditors would need to do this job.

Finish your audit, release the report, and be prepared to defend it in court.

Republican Jack Sellers is chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and represents county District 1; he issued this public statement on July 15.
