One America News Network’s Christina Bobb announced this week that Pennsylvania legislatures are calling for an audit in their state after touring the Maricopa County, Arizona, forensic audit.
A delegation from Pennsylvania took a full tour of the audit facility and now wants one in their state.
“They’ve expressed interest in the Arizona audit and possibly replicating this in Pennsylvania,” she told viewers.
“They are getting a behind-the-scenes tour tomorrow … They’re going to get to hear from the auditors exactly what is happening,” she added.
“Of course, there’s been a lot of criticism about this audit. So, they have concerns that they want to see addressed, namely, is voter integrity maintained? Is the secret ballot maintained? Of course, if there’s any way that the audit could somehow be disparaging any certain demographic?” she asked.
“So, this is going to be an opportunity for them to get out and see exactly what’s happening in Arizona — and if they like what they see, take it back to Pennsylvania,” she added.
“I’ve heard a lot of rumblings,” she said. “We’ve heard from many of the senators that they are getting accolades from around the country and many other states are reaching out to them congratulating them on the work that they’re doing and thanking them for continuing the fight and staying in the fight. And I think once they realize that the Senate was honest and being real when they said, ‘Hey, we welcome any state to come take a look at this,’ then I think we’re going to start seeing other states follow suit.”
The delegation included Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano, state Sen. Cris Dush, and state Rep. Rob Kauffman — all Republicans.

Democrats have not been fans of the Maricopa County, Arizona audit of the 2020 presidential election.
And one lawmaker thinks things are about to bust wide open.
Florida state House GOP Rep. Anthony Sabatini took to Twitter and weighed in on the audit in Maricopa County.
“The result of the #ArizonaAudit is going to be earth shattering. Get ready!” he tweeted.

The audit has taken several turns this week.
Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward has had it with what she sees as the obstruction in the Maricopa County, Arizona election audit and now she is threatening action.
“There have to be consequences,” she said during an appearance on One America News. “There could be arrests of people who are refusing to comply.”
It’s the latest drama to encompass the audit of the 2.1 million ballots in the state’s largest county, which has featured false allegations votes were destroyed and conspiracy theories alleging the ballots were shredded and eaten by chickens, who were then killed to cover up the evidence.
Ward’s comments came after the Republican-controlled Board of Supervisors for Maricopa County refused to attend a meeting Tuesday with GOP senators who had demanded the audit. The board called the audit was a ‘sham’ run by ‘grifters’ that cast doubts upon the democratic process.
And it wasn’t the first time an arrest has been suggested.
In February, when the county was arguing against the audit in court, most Arizona Republican senators supported a resolution to hold the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt and arrest supervisors for failing to turn over access to voting records. The resolution failed to pass but showed the mindset of those elected officials who demanded the audit.
Her interview came on the same day that it was discovered that election data that was rumored to have been deleted was found.
On Thursday, Arizona’s Secretary of State Katie Hobbs sent a letter claiming the election machines that were audited by the Cyber Ninja team these past few weeks should never be used again.
“This equipment was accessed by amateur, uncertified ‘auditors’ with zero transparency. I support election integrity, and therefore can’t support the continued usage of these machines,” she wrote.
Last week, the Arizona Department of Public Safety was called to investigate a suspicious package sent to the office of Arizona Senate Leader Karen Fann.
One of Fann’s aides reportedly opened a letter with an “unidentified white power.”
This is significant because Fann is overseeing the election audit taking place in Maricopa County.
Democrats are fighting to stop the audit and continue to attack the Republican State Senators.
