Alaska Rep. David Eastman tours audit of election results in Maricopa County, Arizona

Rep. David Eastman of Wasilla was spotted touring the facilities in Maricopa County, Arizona, where an audit is being conducted of the 2020 presidential election.

In addition to Eastman flying on his own dime from Anchorage to take a tour of the ongoing audit, delegations from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Nevada, and Georgia have been at Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The night before, Eastman had attended a party celebrating the victory of Dave Bronson as the next Anchorage mayor.

Arizona Senate Republicans approved an election audit — a recount of all 2.1 million Maricopa County ballots. The county, where Phoenix is the largest city, accounts for 60 percent of the ballots cast in Arizona.

While the audit won’t overturn the results of the presidential or U.S. Senate races, the method is being closely monitored by both ends of the political spectrum — Republicans say it will create more trust in elections or could prove election fraud, while Democrats and the mainstream media say it will destroy the Democracy as we know it.

Arizona Senate Republicans hired a private company out of Florida called Cyber Ninjas to lead the effort that involves subcontractors. According to sources in the building, the hand count is about 80 percent complete.

The audit can be watched via numerous stadium cameras at this azaudit.org site.

  • Good for Rep Eastman! I’m not convinced our Election wasn’t tainted.

  • Count as many times as you want on your dime. No brainer.

  • Well done Mr. Eastman. Thank you!

  • It is pretty fishy that 109% of the eligible voters voted in the 2020 election.

  • “Destroy democracy as we know it”… Translation: make sure the demorats can’t steal another election.

  • So, according to the ADN, Lt. Gov Meyer is “disappointed” to hear that Rep. Eastman is touring the audit facilities in AZ. Many of us are disappointed in Meyer’s administration, or the lack thereof, of the November election, particularly Meyer’s neglect in not challenging the court decision to allow mail in ballots with unsigned witness statements be counted. The hand recount of potentially tainted ballots proved nothing.

  • The governor doesn’t seam concerned, good job Eastman. We need faith in our election system.

  • Yes, the election was stolen from Trump

  • Excellent point Lance. It’s my understanding that when the auditors asked to review the electronic records on the voting machines themselves, a great number of the machines had the memories wiped. Very convenient.

  • I am so happy to hear that an Alaskan representative went to Arizona! I’m convinced that there was fraud in our last election, I wish this State would also audit our results.

  • Well the much lamented demise of democracy in its pure form should be welcome! We are a representative republic with democratic institutions. The demise of mob rule is perfectly fine by me.

  • The Other Lance: You are spot on with your comment. It seems as if the Lt Gov, a nice guy, is asleep at the wheel.

  • Dear me. Gotta wonder who Lt. Gov Meyer is afraid of. AFN? The Alaska Municipal League? The various public employees unions? The non-profits which wouldn’t exist were it not for government handouts? Welfare recipients of all stripes?

  • I don’t know if anyone reads the local liberal news rag “Frontiersman”, their response to Eastman’s trip was something I would expect from the rag ADN. I’m amazed that a “news”paper like them could survive in our borough. I quit supporting many years ago, but they must have a following.
