Senate chooses its own qualified auditing firm to conduct forensic audit of Maricopa County election results

[ Editor’s note: This was released on Friday, January 29th.]

Today Senate President Fann announced that the Arizona State Senate has hired an independent, qualified, forensic auditing firm to analyze 2020 election results in Maricopa County.

President Fann: “There are two primary reasons we have determined the Senate needed to retain its own independent auditing firm. The Senate has consistently called for an auditor certified by the U. S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). We have now learned the EAC does not certify auditors as such. The other primary reason is that the scope of the audit must be broader than the one proposed by the County’s vendors. Our firm will perform everything we have required in the subpoenas. We must bring back confidence that the election results reported are how votes were legally cast. The Senate’s forensic audit will bring accuracy and detail to the process, and with that restore integrity to the election process.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Petersen: “Maricopa County has chosen two companies to audit their election. Unfortunately, their limited scope does not fulfill the demand of our subpoena, which called for a deep forensic audit. We need to do more than make basic checks on the machines to make sure they were working. We need to check the ballots and ballot scans for abnormalities. We need to look at the machines to see if there was any manipulation. We need to make sure there was no remote or local access that made changes to the results. I’m grateful the President has chosen a firm that will do that work. Only then will our voters feel confident about the results of the election.”

  1. I just saw your YouTube video about Audit and I just want to say may God help you take down the Deep State. We need Term Limits for Congress and Senate period.

    So will you take a money order for your book and if so who do I make it out to?
    Thank you for your hard work on this.

    1. You can reach Dr. Lyle at:

      Prescott eNews

      If you are writing a check or money order, please make it out to Lyle Rapacki.

  2. I am 72 and voted for the first time in 2016 for a non-politician/business man Donald Trump who was doing a fantastic job! I have been so disgusted with the false, rigged election of 2020. I have seen so much proof of fraud exposed on internet and am very happy that Arizona is at least looking into it. Please hurry, Biden is destroying this country.
    We the people thank you!

    1. I’m 77 and I live in California. I am in agreement with you about fraud in this election. I too hope the proof of fraud is exposed. Arizona is the only state going forward with this type of investigation. If it doesn’t go forward to completion, our future freedom as we know it, looks bleak.

  3. Has the BOS of Maricopa Co released all the voting materials yet for the deep audit that was supposed to start today, Feb 3rd? I am hearing conflicting reports. We need to have this full audit! Also, how do we find where to sign to have the Board of Supervisors removed? They have been interfering with allowing this audit to take place. These votes belong to We the People, NOT to the BOS! Thank you to Mr. Rapacki and others working on this. Please let us citizens know how we can help!

      1. The audit they are doing on the machines and ballots are for all the machines and ballots not just a sample size?

    1. I have no confidence in the honesty of the BOS and if they are to examine the ballots and machines first, then they could easily alter the results and make it impossible to discover fraud. !!!!

      1. What I have read and understood is, that if any information on the machines is altered or deleted, it will leave behind signature and a record of that action and will be a infraction of Federal law, therefore rendering the county votes as fraudulent. Basically, they would be sabotaging themselves.

  4. Thanks to all who uphold the rule of law and our Constitution of the United States of America and our Bill of Rights.
    Your leadership and due diligence is greatly appreciated and inspiring. It makes me proud to be an American and I support your efforts in bringing true justice to election integrity. The truth is on our side and may it give you all strength to fight against any forces that try to suppress facts related to election problems.
    Resident of San Bernardino County, California

  5. If Joe Biden won “fair and square” then why has there been so much resistance on auditing,
    and why has the Democratic Party tried to silence everyone who dares question the results?

    What are they so afraid of?

  6. The BOS is criminally complicit in the voter fraud that has occurred in Arizona and other states across this country. We the People and completely fed up with these devious and criminal ‘election supervisors’ and the stealing/altering our VOTES. When will the legislature, which has the legal right to seize the evidence, arrest these officials and begin a Legitimate Audit? We know the the ‘supervisors’ and stonewalling and attempting to continue with their FRAUD. Stop them NOW!

  7. This message is especially for (Dr Lyle Rapacki )and others who would be interested. I can tell you’all it reveals very compelling information concerning the potentials for voting machine fraud and tampering.
    Please take a look and see this movie that I just saw yesterday. I found it on my tv. (Located here in Oklahoma). In searching for the movie on (my) tv, it was located through my remote by selecting the On Demand button and then looking into the free free movie category. You may have to just make a verbal request to the remote by asking for the title. The title is: “Kill Chain, The cyber war on America’s Elections.”
    (On Demand). Thank You!

  8. All of America is watching you Az. Finally someone has stepped up to the plate with courage to defend voting integrity. It’s rigged by these corrupt politicians. They are criminals and are selling out America and getting Big Money in there pockets. The Dems are so Afraid they’re About to get Busted. America knows the Truth.

  9. I’m excited to follow the situation in Arizona. Please ensure the audit is all-inclusive including studying the voting machine source code. IT Security companies can do this.

  10. Do Auditing firms include Pulitzer’s Company and Colonel Waldrons firm?

    They would give Arizona all the answers and before the impeachment trial.

  11. So am I understanding correctly the BOS gets first look at the Dominion voting machines? This seems like an opportunity to alter Dominion’s internal data files. How are the voters to have confidence that tampering hasn’t taken place after the fact?

    1. Cathy Richardson

      Thank you for asking this! We are also wondering if the BOS has the access to the machines and ballots needed to alter them. I’m surprised no one has addressed this elephant in the room. Help, Dr. Lyle and team! We need reassurance they are not tampering with vital evidence right now as we speak!

    2. I agree and I am shocked that the Arizona legislatures are allowing BOS to examine results first and alter any evidence of criminal misdoing !!!!!

    3. EXACTLY … !!!!. All the data and machines should be frozen until the state legislature conducts their own audit. To allow BOS access first to the data and machines is just plain stupid … !!! They are not to be trusted.

  12. Watching to see what happens I’m in Massachusetts and on the edge of my seat waiting for results. I watched the live testimony from brave citizens no way all these people are lyers . America got screwed and I still can’t believe that it was allowed. Americans have to pay attention and get the swamp people out of office we need to demand an end to a system that invites voting fraud . I D to vote no I D no vote pretty simple special cases would get another way to cast there vote .

      1. Good luck with checking results in Ma any attempt would be futile. In this state if you question weather there was any question weather the election was rigged or not you are called names , you are blocked from posting on social media your posts are removed it’s like we are in a different country where the citizens have no rights. After reading Prescott e news sounds like there still arguing about the audit . Is it going to happen ?

  13. Don’t you think they will tamper with the software in their audit.
    Come on man, why are you giving them every advantage you can.

  14. Evonne Rodrigues

    So excited to hear what Arizona is doing, I came upon a youtube video last night with Lyle Rapaski speaking of this forensic audit that starts today. We have been praying fervently for this fraud to be uncovered. I am in the State of Hawaii. Go Arizona, get this thing exposed quickly!!

  15. Why isn’t the FBI / DOJ involved? It just shows how corrupt the FBI & DOJ are. America needs to be Liberated from this Government!

  16. Who did the Senate hire to do the audits? If it was Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, America has hope. He is more than over qualified to do the audits and Americans trust he would do the job and provide the true results direct to the public. We all know the election needs to be recertified.

  17. If a suspect is accused of robbing a bank; they are not allowed to “Investigate themselves” and if the suspect refuses to let investigators in their house, THAT in itself brings high suspicion on them. Where would investigators start looking? No big mystery here, they would look in the suspect’s house! Oh but the suspect quickly says “WAIT” I will investigate and search my house and get back to you! Police say; oh ok well let us know when your done and tell us what you find. Then when the police come back a few months later and want to look themselves; the suspect says “WAIT” I will look again ! now go away and stop bothering my “HOW MANY investigations is it going to take for you to realize I didn’t do anything wrong???? go away! ! Oops the statute of limitations ran out. I guess the suspect was innocent – Right?

  18. So if there has to be a majority of senators to enforce a subpoena and all it takes is one senator voting no for a tie or two for a stall just how many of you think any state has rep. senators with those kind of guts? not in the republican party. Its amazing the snakes we have in our party that like a bad pimple seem to raise their ugly heads up at the most inopportune time, do dems. have that problem? not hardly. For some reason evil just somehow sticks together. I hope and pray i’m wrong but the fact of the matter is if this were reversed the dems would already have those county board members stuck so far back in jail they would have to pipe sunlight to them and tapping on the walls and pipes to communicate with their lawyers.

  19. Just read an article from Washington Examiner. Says still refusing to allow forensic audit of voting machines. Who’s running the state ? Board of supervisors have more power than senate does ? This just makes the audit more important than ever ,what are they hiding, Hope they can’t wipe these machines clean. And if they do then what’s the next move ? This country needs a complete election do over ,the whole country ,new election vote in person no BS.

  20. Arizona, America is watching! We deserve the truth. Is that too much to ask? What is the purpose of retaining the election records for 22 months, if an authentic audit is being refused? Thank you for all your work and dedication to our great country!

  21. I don’t understand why, if the county board is refusing to release the ballots, they are not being prosecuted. I thought ignoring a subpoena resulted in arrests. Also what happens if this drags on past the date when ballots must be stored. Can they then be destroyed. It would seem to me that it would be less damning for these people to be prosecuted for destroying the ballots than for them to be prosecuted for tampering with a national election. Will someone please explain.

  22. For the life of me I can’t understand why this is such a boondoggle. Its way beyond frustrating, to me it’s infuriating. Don’t we all or shouldn’t we all want the same thing, namely fair and honest election results where only legal ballots are counted? If someone, anyone apposes that concept it’s a strong indication of malfeasance. There is only one path to help America heal and that’s to determine beyond doubt fraud did not swing election results. It’s so simple; the technology exists to quickly scan paper ballots to look for folds in the case of mail in ballots, or counterfeit ballots, etc. As for Dominion voting machines, Allied Security Operations Group did a forensic examination of Antrim Michigan’s Dominion voting machines and published a report dated 12/13/2020. Here’s a quote from the report.

    B. PURPOSE AND PRELIMINARY CONCLUSIONS
    1. The purpose of this forensic audit is to test the integrity of Dominion Voting System in how it performed in Antrim County, Michigan for the 2020 election.
    2. We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results
    of Antrim County should not have been certified.

    Isn’t that conclusion scary? How are American’s supposed to reconcile that the State of Texas considered using Dominion voting machines and found them to be unacceptable and at the very same time, (2019) the State of Georgia awarded Dominion with a $107 million contract to election-technology vendor Dominion Voting Systems to replace the state’s voting machines ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Huh….. and we all know how Georgia went.
    Please, please, please, absolutely secure the Dominion voting machines, forensically look at every single paper ballot. I’m encouraged that Arizona is actively pursuing this but for the sake of our nation, for the preservation of the Democratic Republic and the principles our nation was founded on, don’t delay, don’t allow anyone to have access to the voting machines until your independent study has concluded. There’s enough smoke of fraud to warrant this type of investigation to determine what exactly the truth is. I can handle the truth; America can handle the truth, Arizona we’re all counting on you to help us understand just what that truth really is. It must be allowed to proceed uninhibited. Arizona, America applauds your initiative in seeking the truth. You are a beacon to the rest of the States that used Dominion voting machines, you got this!

    1. > If someone, anyone apposes that concept it’s a strong indication of malfeasance.

      Maricopa county officials “reluctance” is all part of the charade… what they had to hide has he months now to get hidden or cleaned up. The farce of “conjured malfeasance” in play will only serve as another nail in the coffin for the vote steal narrative. Only this time, with teeth. They were FORCED to comply and the audit still FOUND ZILCH. NATIONWIDE on the AP WIRE.

  23. It all seems like a farce, two firms plus another to do the “deep forensic” investigation. The country “hiding” in contempt and unwilling to comply… if this election was rigged, who in their right mind seriously thinks the ballots and machines have stood untouched or unaltered since Nov 3-4-5? Just sitting locked up in a room? Please… this entire farce already goes the deep state’s way. Just going through the motions to bring the narrative to fruition.

  24. I have no confidence in the validity of a BOS Audit and they are not to be trusted. I presume they could easily alter the results to cover a criminal alteration.

  25. > The farce of “conjured malfeasance” in play will only serve as another nail in the coffin for the vote steal narrative.

    So are you saying is it’s not worth the bother? I disagree, based on the forensic examination of Antrim Michigan’s Dominion voting machines I’d say it should be done in all states that used the machines. If nothing else, Arizona will be the second State to add a data point of how easily Dominion voting machines can manipulate votes. If the politicians can approve an omnibus bill giving Pakistan $10 million for gender programs, Burma $135 million, Ukraine $453 million, and Sudan $700 million in taxpayer-funded assistance, we can afford to spend the money to ensure our voting systems are secure.

  26. The Maricopa Board of Supervisors are desperately attempting to hide the Truths; Why? If the BOS were after the Truth, the audit would be performed by an entity accepted by ‘The People’; obviously the only people the Board of Supervisors trust are themselves. Someone needs to explain to them, sadly, they lost our trust many weeks ago.

  27. Hot off the press…. Mike Lindell’s documentary… “Absolute Proof Documentary”

    Start at time mark 1:08:15 if you want an answer as to why nothing has happened with the forensic examination of Antrim Michigan’s Dominion voting machines. So sad America has been methodically being destroyed from within. Arizona, please also look very closely at your paper ballots! not just the Dominion machines. The results need to be correlated! God speed!

  29. The price of Freedom is high. I look at this alleged fraud not only as an attack on the USA; but as an attempt to render the ultimate sacrifice of the countless youths that went to war as meaningless; of the horror faced as personnel carriers grounded on the beach greeted by the deafening rattle of machine-gun fire pummeling the steel hull, of family trees whose new shoots of youth were cut off and heirs denied life. Of mother’s enduring child-birth and 2-decades sacrifice and worry in rearing her child…only to be snuffed out on foreign soil. Shall we say it was all for nothing and the entrance of evil was but delayed while, as said, the detriment to countless family trees was, indeed, permanent? I think not. For the assaults we face in pushing forward on this election farce are mere words and rhetoric; not lethal lead traveling at the speed of sound and greater. Martin Luther King, Jr. correctly stated that Adolf Hitler broke none of his nations laws… because he had them re-written to legalize his forthcoming atrocities. The US is not yet in that predecurement, but soon will be. Those boldly promising the disbarment of any challenging with cause need to be indicted. It was the failure of the JD to take the lawless elete out of play that has compounded our problems and yhreats

  30. Jim Hollingsworth

    I think this audit has to go forward. The BOS can have no reason to not release the voting material. If they refuse, then arrest them. What have they got to hide. Thanks. Jim Hollingsworth

  31. What are we waiting for? Subpoenas were issued in December. Not sure why that took so long. I understand the BOS is conducting audits of tabulation machines this week to avoid allowing Senate doing more intensive audits. Senate will vote on whether to go ahead with charges brought against Supervisors no sooner than Feb. 15. They are still waiting for a judge to rule on whether the Senate can physically receive the ballots. Apparently the election worker and BOS eyes are more qualified than state elected Senators to see how people really voted. The BOS also hiding behind a contract the county has with Dominion. Antrim County, MI got around that after thousands of votes were flipped from Trump to O’Biden. The report was damning of Dominion machines. I expect the same would happen here if an honest audit were allowed. I am trying to hold out hope that truth will win. So far, it looks like dark days for the USA that I love. Go Patriots!

  32. I turned from a Democratic supporter to Republican and voted for President Trump. The turning point for me was watching the DNC and RNC. The DNC looked like it was produced by five year old children and just consisted of anger and lies. It was horrible to watch. I then watched the RNC and I was shocked by how professional and well produced it was. There was so much kindness and compassion. This was a stark difference from the Democrats who just seem to spew anger, hatred, and lies.

    It has become vastly apparent watching the consistent lying and doctoring of “evidence” during President Trump’s impeachable #2. It is very evident that the Democrats and some other fossilized politicians don’t have our country or our people’s best interest in mind. Their focus is “THEM ONLY”. I am absolutely sickened by what I’ve seen and want to help in any way possible. I CAN NEVER, IN GOOD CONSCIENCE, VOTE FOR ANOTHER DEMOCRAT AGAIN after what I’ve seen these past several months.

    The evidence is to evident. This election was stolen from Donald Trump. DO NOT LET PEOPLE FOR YOU TO BELIEVING OTHERWISE. The Democrats will do anything to steal power. They had a dirty plan and they played it out. We have to fix it before it’s too late.

    Let me know how I can help in anyway. I will stand with all you patriots!
