New Hampshire’s Windham incident isn’t the only November ballot news still on tap. The Arizona State Senate issued subpoenas for ballots and election gear. The Maricopa Board of Supervisors filed to invalidate those subpoenas, but the Judge says they are not only legitimate the State Senate has election oversight powers. Cough it up.
The county has argued that previous, multiple audits are sufficient and that the ballots should be sealed.
“The Court finds that the subpoenas are legal and enforceable,” [Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy] Thomason wrote in his ruling, obtained by The Times. “There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections.”
I find this fascinating.
They all insist everything is in order. Nothing untoward happened; it was all by the book. But if that were true, would they not be eager to have their assurances confirmed?
If the election is on the up and up, the State Senate will confirm for the naysayers that their theories are conspiracies. Why would you not want to have your assertions of a clean election confirmed in the face of a storm of criticism?
By the very people who doubt you.
The State Senate has the authority, and they have chosen to exercise it. A judge has confirmed these facts. The question as to whether they will appeal that ruling remains unanswered.
I’d guess yes; they will appeal as far and for as long as they can.
I think they have something to hide.
