Once more, we find ourselves discussing the events that took place in Maricopa County, Arizona in November 2020. We all know what happened, but proving it beyond a reasonable doubt when it comes to evidence that is still available and has not been destroyed has been challenging.
We live in a time when we can effectively hide our technological footprints.
Following the audit that took place in Maricopa County last year, there was a lot that was discovered, but none of it was enough to prove undoubtedly that there was fraud. Fraud can only be proven when you can prove malicious acts by a party. If they can chalk it up to coincidence and make it so that there is at least one plausible explanation, then you can't definitively say it was fraud.
Now, a new report has revealed some key information that would prove the election was fraudulent. Public records requests were used by Verity Vote to find that more than 20,000 ballots were improperly counted in Maricopa County's 2020 elections.
The presidential election in Arizona in 2020 was decided by less than 10,000 votes.
Verity Vote discovered that Maricopa County received and tallied tens of thousands of ballots after the election day deadline after submitting several records requests and waiting months for responses.
The Arizona Attorney General's interim report on election fraud made no mention of this finding. So far, the Attorney General Mark Brnovich has talked a big game as though he were going to do something about the election, but he hasn't actually done anything besides talk.
Arizona Law requires that all ballots be received by the county no later than 7pm on Election Day in order for them to be counted and valid1. However, review of Maricopa County 2020 General Election records shows that more than 20,000 ballots were transported from the United States Postal Service (USPS) after that deadline.
Verity Vote obtained delivery receipts from the county that show USPS ballots were received on November 4, 5 and 6. Any ballots not rejected are accepted by default and tabulated into the election results. Arizona law is clear that it is not an issue of the ballot postmark but the receipt of the ballot by the county prior to 7pm on Election Day.
Will anything ever be done about this? It doesn't look like it.
