Republican Former AG of Arizona Says What We're All Thinking About AZ Election 'Audit'

Republican Former AG of Arizona Says What We're All Thinking About AZ Election 'Audit'

Earlier this year, Republican legislators in Arizona forced a partisan "audit" of Maricopa County's ballots in the 2020 election, giving further credence to former President Donald Trump's lies that the 2020 election was "stolen" from him by Democrats engaging in widespread election fraud.

For months, the so-called audit was marred by conspiracy theories and shady behavior. The firm overseeing the audit, Cyber Ninjas, had never worked on an election before and had expressed support for Trump's election delusions in the past. One of the audit's workers claimed they were searching for bamboo fibers in ballots, based on fantasies that fake ballots were somehow flown in from Asia.

The audit was funded by conservatives and at least one participant in the deadly January 6 insurrection was seen counting ballots.

After months of delays, the audit's report was finally released, further reinforcing now-President Biden's 2020 win in the county—ten months after he won it the first time.

Now, a Republican former Attorney General for Arizona, Grant Woods, is calling the audit a "grift."

'It's a grift': Former Republican Arizona AG blows the lid off the Cyber Ninjas 'audit'

In an interview with CNN, Woods said of the audit:

"They're in it for the money. It is a grift. There's a lot of grifters we have been exposed to. I was attorney general for years. I dealt with grifters every day. This is how they act."

Others agreed with the former Attorney General's assessment.

People weren't surprised at the sham.

Nevertheless, similar audits are already emerging in other Republican-led swing states.
