Arizona GOP Still Trying To Overturn 2020 Election With Ballot Audit Stunt

In the never-ending attempt to Steal The Election Arizona Republicans are conducting a THIRD audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa Country.

Proof you can't fix stupid is being graphically demonstrated by Republican efforts denying the election results in 2020. 

Arizona Republicans hired a company known for working for QAnon nuts and other extremists - Cyber Ninjas - to conduct an audit in a feeble attempt to rig the results.

In the first place, the audit is supposed to be about transparency, but Cyber Ninjas has abandoned any pretense of such and requested a judge to keep their procedures secret from the public and the press.

For the record, taxpayers are being asked to pay for this sorry-ass attempt to subvert democracy.

Putting an agenda-driven company in charge was the first sign the audit was a partisan ploy to stir up Trump's base. Asking a judge to keep their methods secret was the second sign.

Any reasonable person knows the election was fair. It was challenged over 70 times in the courts by fantasy-driven Trump supporters and went nowhere.

The GOPs latest attempt is dead-in-the-waters, but leaves a sticky film of corruption that will be hard to get rid of. 

The real danger behind these futile attempts is the fact a political party is using the Big Lie to assault our electoral system.

Sadly, there seems to be no end to this stupidity, as GOP hacks try to claw their way back to power.
