As chair of state Senate Judiciary panel, Arizona senator plans to subpoena Dominion for audit

The liberal media spent much of the day Monday celebrating the Electoral College “officially” confirming Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election — the great irony of the occasion is that the candidate responded to say, “Faith in our institutions held. The integrity of our elections remains intact.”

And while the corrupt media establishment is ready to move on, those with serious questions about that “integrity” are pushing forward, as seen in Arizona, where state Sen. Eddie Farnsworth announced Monday he will issue subpoenas for an audit of Dominion Voting Systems machines used in Maricopa County.

The Republican chairman of the state Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Monday as the state’s eleven electoral votes went to Biden, and Farnsworth said that there are enough questions about election results produced by Dominion to warrant subpoenas being issued to check the accuracy of hardware and software used by the company to count the votes, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

“We hold an audit and we see what the outcome is,” the lawmaker said. “And then we can put this to rest.”

The likelihood of the audit changing the outcome is very slim, as a court-ruling would have to overturn the results.

Farnsworth suggested the subpoenas are simply a matter of addressing the various claims “and try and see if we can reinsert some confidence in our election process.”

“I can tell you this was born of the idea and the fact that the legislature has the authority and the responsibility, ultimately, to ensure that our elections are fair and open — transparent — and that we in fact have integrity in the process,” Farnsworth said.

Without an audit, the chairman suggested that would “leave our constituents feeling like maybe this election was compromised.”

There was confusion Monday about “unofficial” electors in Arizona filing reports in support of President Trump.

More from the Daily Star:

One group consists of the 11 Arizona Republicans whose names were on the Nov. 3 ballot as pledged to Trump.

That vote Monday was organized by the state GOP on the premise that outstanding legal challenges could end up changing Arizona’s final vote total in the presidential election. […]

Separately, a group of self-proclaimed “sovereign citizens” filed their own slate of “electors” with the National Archives, claiming they represent Arizona’s 11 electoral votes for Trump.

Documents say Mesa resident Lori Osiecki submitted sworn statements for the 11 people “by authority & direction of the sovereign citizens of the great state of Arizona.”

 

Murphy Hebert, an aide to Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, called the GOP effort a meaningless “political gesture,” according to the newspaper.
