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.
