... the quickest and simplest vignette of the results is provided by A Nod To The Gods.
I have no problem with the audit's findings that its final vote totals closely matched those reported immediately after the election. However, that's not the point. All the mainstream media and progressive-left pontificating about how this "proves" that the election results were valid is so much hooey.
... what's been discovered thus far and proved (and for which the evidence is now in the public domain) shows that:
1. The election in Maricopa County for federal offices, including President, was not conducted in accordance with Federal Law.
2. The results, based solely on the count of duplicated ballot envelopes (people who voted more than once), which exceeds the margin of victory for the Presidential Office, are not able to be confirmed since once duplicate ballots are removed from the envelopes it is impossible to identify them. Maricopa county claimed no such duplicates exist. We now know more than 17,000 in fact do exist and the envelopes still exist. What we cannot prove one way or another is whether the ballots inside those envelopes were counted and, if only one was counted, which one was counted. We thus have no way to know who won.
3. The persons running the election have made materially false statements on an intentional basis about the equipment never being connected to the Internet.
4. The persons running the election both deliberately destroyed data related to the election in direct violation of Federal Law and, as a separate and distinct offense, attempted to cover up that destruction and identification of the person who did so. This act, standing alone, demonstrates intent to tamper with the election results.
5. The vast majority of said deliberately destroyed data was not recoverable and likely is not recoverable.
By forensic evidence, not presented and unrebutted, the outcome of the election in Arizona was falsely certified.
What's the remedy for this?
That's a separate debate -- but that this one county alone did in fact corrupt their election, did so intentionally, and did so in such a fashion that at this time it not possible to know what the result actually was is not subject to reasonable dispute.
Finally, not only was their forensic computer person credible he displayed exactly the process that I, as a person skilled in the art and who has performed computer forensics, would utilize. I found no fault in his procedures, his process and analysis. Not did I find him to make a single unproved assertion of fact. This is exactly what a professional is supposed to do in this field.

To put it as simply as possible, it's irrelevant that the audit's vote totals closely match those reported after the election, because we cannot prove or disprove that those vote totals are measuring valid ballots, validly cast and validly counted.
If an election result cannot be guaranteed to be accurate, the election itself is called into question. When the questionable ballots total more than five times the margin of victory for a candidate in that state, it's even worse, because there can be no certainty that the winning candidate did, indeed, triumph in the polls.
The only valid, honest, truly democratic solution to the election imbroglio in Maricopa County, AZ, is to:
- Declare that the November 2020 election results were ineligibly and invalidly certified as correct;
- Nullify the certification of those results;
- Re-run the election, this time making certain that all the irregularities identified in the previous election are addressed and prevented from happening again;
- Re-calculating the results of the November 2020 elections using the new and certifiably valid results from Maricopa County;
- Declaring winners and losers for state and federal office based on the new, valid vote count.
Now, let's find out how many of those "errors" occurred in other swing states and cities, and do the same thing there - and not just there. Similar problems have already been discovered in, for example, Colorado.
Mesa County, Colorado Clerk and Recorder Tina M. Peters has submitted a forensic examination report to the Mesa County commissioners. The report shows that a massive amount of election data was deleted and “destroyed” by the office of the Democrat Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold and Dominion Voting Systems, which performed a supposed system upgrade on the voting equipment in May. Luckily, Peters had the data backed up before it was destroyed, hopefully keeping alive the prospect of performing a full forensic audit of the 2020 election.
If more of the same shenanigans are found, across multiple states, I'd say the results of the November 2020 elections across the entire nation will be in so much doubt that it should basically be written off and done over. After all, what other fair, honest solution is there? If you can think of one, I'd love to hear it.
Makes you think, doesn't it?
EDITED TO ADD: Larry Correia, who's a forensic auditor himself and had so much to say about electoral fraud immediately after the November 2020 elections, takes a look at the Maricopa County audit. Bold, underlined text is my emphasis.
Basically the headlines are all coming off of the executive summary, section 2. And note, they’re only taking the very first part, and then quit reporting ... To break this down, the first part, the recount/canvass matches what was there before, and the only differences are statistically insignificant. News media goes Yay! Biden won by even more votes! Cope! Cope! Cope!
Except, the second part they aren’t talking about is… are those votes all actual legal votes? And the answer is possibly not (why possibly? I’ll get to that). Then see all those bullet points of problems, weirdness, and fuckery. Which comes down to there being about five times as many questionable votes as Biden’s margin of victory (for the state, in this one county).
This is where it gets sticky ... Section 4 is the tally results. That’s what the media is talking about. Section 5 is the problems. That’s what they are studiously avoiding talking about.
They are divided into 13 types of problems, ranging from critical to inconsequential. Statistically, it’s the first few that are the big ones, and each of those gets their own breakdown in 5.3 and 5.4. Go read through those.
On some of these types you’ll be thinking, why didn’t the auditors take these problematic ballots and track them back even further to see if the signatures match the actual human being who supposedly cast the vote? Sorry. I believe the democrats blocked them from doing that in court. (which is totally not suspicious at all from people who have absolutely nothing to hide!)
. . .
The rest of the report is about the systems and controls, and how they should be improved. This part is really telling. Basically the Arizona election system is easily manipulated trash, with crap controls, and if any private company I ever worked at got caught with this many holes in it, they’d fire all the accountants and half the managers.
Now, for the idiot brigade that is crowing about how this proves whatever they want it to prove about the election and how everybody else should shut up forever, here’s some stuff that’s not in this report to think about.
This was the audit of one county, in one of the questionable states. Back in the aftermath of the election, I found Arizona to be the least interesting of those questionable states. Other counties had way more fuckery afoot. Atlanta and Detroit were way crazier than Phoenix on election night. No audits there.
And even in Arizona, this is one county. I don’t know the area that well so I’m just going off of what friends of mine who live there say, but Maricopa is usually the red county. Pima (2nd biggest) is the blue county. And they still found 5x the margin of victory in questionable votes in the red county. I’m sure next door was totally clean.

Funny how the mainstream media are avoiding like the plague the "big picture" revealed by the audit, isn't it?
