Ten months, nearly one year, after Joe Biden was elected the 46th President of the United States, a Republican-commission review of Arizona’s election has been completed. The review was put in place to confirm the accuracy of the official results that were reported back in November.
The private firm paid close attention to Maricopa County. And as The Washington Post reports, the review has found that Joe Biden did win a fair election.
Private Review of Arizona’s Election Results Confirm the Obvious, Joe Biden Won a Fair Election.
The review took six months to complete and cost nearly $6 million. In conclusion, it was found that “45,469 more ballots were cast for Biden in Maricopa County than for Trump, widening Biden’s margin by 360 more votes than certified results.”
The version of the report obtained by The Washington Post has been laced as a “draft.” It can still go through revisions before the final report is released to the public.
Randy Pullen, a spokesman for the ballot review, told an NPR affiliate that the draft version was “close” to the final report. He added, “Was there massive fraud or anything? It doesn’t look like it.”
Pullen later texted The Washington Post to caution that “updates in the final report” will be made.
However, as The Post reports, the draft report does cast doubt on the findings. It seems to “suggest that some ballots could have been improperly accepted and counted by the county. Further, the document includes keynotes of caution, saying only that further investigation is warranted.”
Joe Biden is the first Democrat to win Arizona since 1996. As a result, the review began back in April after Republican leadership objected to the results.
“You don’t have to dig deep into the draft copy of the Arizona Senate/Cyber Ninja audit report to confirm what I already knew — the candidates certified by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, Governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General — did, in fact, win,” Chairman Jack Sellers, a Republican, said following the release of the draft.
Sadly, as The Hill reported, former President Donald J. Trump is still not accepting of the findings.
In a statement issued through his leadership PAC, Save America, Trump went as far as to call the report “a political bombshell.” He further said that it “has uncovered significant and undeniable evidence of FRAUD.”
“Huge findings in Arizona! However, the Fake News Media is already trying to ‘call it’ again for Biden before actually looking at the facts—just like they did in November! This is a major criminal event and should be investigated by the Attorney General immediately. The Senate’s final report will be released today at 4:00 PM ET. I have heard it is far different than that being reported by the Fake News Media.”
All of which are baseless claims.
The final report is expected to be released on the evening of September 24.
