I just read on the internet that, “A judge will determine whether the Arizona Senate has the authority to subpoena ballots, tabulation machines and other equipment and data from Maricopa County for a purported audit of the 2020 election.”
I can understand why the ballots should not be released due to privacy issues and because the Arizona law prohibits it; but does the law prohibit release of the election tabulating equipment to responsible experts, overseen by state officials for forensic examination to alleviate the concerns of the citizens of Arizona?
I cannot say that I am concerned about the integrity of the tabulating equipment, but after reading numerous articles and seeing numerous videos about suspected problems, those concerns should be resolved.
Comments have been made that the tabulating equipment is very expensive as a reason for not releasing it, but certainly responsible people with official oversight would not damage the equipment.
Those requesting this audit have made it clear that they are not trying to overturn the 2020 election but wish to add credibility to future elections. That sounds fair to me.
