AZ Republican State Sen. Wendy Rogers Calls for New Election


OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion








Arizona Republican State Sen. Wendy Rogers has been leading the charge on the audit in Maricopa County as well as urging other states to also launched election audits.

Rogers kicked things up a notch this week when she called for the decertification of the election results in Arizona.

“Don’t be the politician left holding the bag when this fraud is proven nationwide. There is still time to get with the program and do the right thing,” Rogers tweeted.

Rogers has been praised by Donald Trump several times for her efforts, especially given she has been very vocal on Twitter about the audit.

An OH Predictive Insights poll found that 62 percent of Arizona Republicans believe that the election audit in Maricopa County will show that Trump defeated Joe Biden in the battleground state.

The poll also found that 21 percent of Republicans say Biden’s victory will stand, while 16 percent saying they are unsure.

Collectively, 78 percent have at least some doubt about Biden’s win in Arizona.

The audit in Maricopa County has taken many turns in recent weeks.

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann said that the state Senate lacks the authority to recall electors.

During an interview on One America News, host Natalie Harp asked about Arizona Republican State Sen. Wendy Rogers calling for a new election after the Arizona Senate held a briefing on the Maricopa County audit.

Fann responded by saying the Arizona Senate has the power to help the auditors get materials and information, but the question of decertifying the election will be left up to others.

“The Senate body — we do not have the authority to do that. So, this is what we have said, and I want to make this very clear on the record,” Fann said.

“We as a Senate body — we have the ability to subpoena information because we make laws. And we’re entitled to have the information to determine how to write those laws. That’s why we are successful in court, and that’s what we’re doing. It’s all about election integrity. It’s not about the Trump-Biden race. It’s not about the Kelly-Martha McSally race,” she added.

Donald Trump reacted to the preliminary findings of the independent election audit team that testified in an update to the Arizona Senate last Thursday.

“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden administration,” Trump said.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan testified on Thursday that the auditors reported 74,000 ballots that were received and included in the 2020 Election in Maricopa County than were mailed out.

Logan said they found 74,243 mail-in ballots with no clear record of them ever being sent.

Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased.

Logan claimed that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence.

Logan also said there were 11,326 individuals who did not show up on the version of the voter rolls prepared the day after the election but did show up on the Dec. 4 list as not only being registered but having voted.

And he said there were nearly 4,000 people listed as registering to vote after the cutoff on Oct. 15.
