In Arizona, after evidence showed that the election information was deliberately deleted after a court order, the Senate demanded answers.
A few rather interesting developments in the Maricopa County, Arizona, ballot audit might begin to paint a picture of what possibly took place.
Let’s start with a letter sent by Senate President Karen Fann to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.
Here is where it gets interesting.
Let’s focus on the “database directory” that was found to have been deleted by the auditors. Pay attention to the dates ‘CREATED’ and the size of the ballot file size ‘bytes’:
What are the odds the 2020 Democrat Presidential Primary Election file created 3/25/2020 would be the exact same size as the audited 2/3/2021 General election file?
Pres Primary file created 3/25/2020 8,388,608 bytes
General Election file created 2/3/2021 8,388,608 bytes
Notice the date this General Election file was created corresponds with the Maricopa Board of Supervisors being under pressure and holding a BOS vote on whether to audit the Maricopa County ballot results in an attempt to stop further public inquiry into potential misconduct. See this article link:
[Thursday January 27th, 2021] – “The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will vote Wednesday on whether to conduct another audit on the county voting system in an attempt to placate any concerns of voter fraud or election misconduct during the 2020 general election.
The public can watch at 9:30 a.m. as the board considers an item at its public meeting that proposes “hiring two independent, qualified firms to independently audit tabulation hardware and software in a way that protects private voter information and our investment in the machines,” according to a statement from Chairman Jack Sellers.”
The article was written Wed Jan 26th, revised Thur Jan 27th. The “will vote Wednesday” is February 3rd, the same day the file was accessed.
[February 3, 2021] – All 16 Republicans in the Arizona Senate co-sponsored a resolution calling for the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to be held in contempt and arrested for refusing to comply with wide-ranging subpoenas for election equipment and materials.
Senate Resolution 1005 directs Senate President Karen Fann to “take all legal action pursuant to section 41-1153” of state law, which says that any “witness neglecting or refusing to attend in obedience to a subpoena may be arrested by the sergeant-at-arms and brought before the senate or house.”
What this all means is yet to be determined; however, there is a general outline starting to emerge. Consider this scenario….
We know the 2020 Democrat President Primary was eventually coordinated by party officials, the DNC, and the Obama network to put Joe Biden into place right before the 2020 South Carolina primary:
“Right before the SC Primary the DNC Club knew they had a problem with the Bernie Sanders momentum. An urgent assembly of all party control officers was called. The DNC Club designed a plan around using James Clyburn as the official spark for Joe Biden to take back control of the primary outcome.
Former President Obama was initiated by the Club to contact all candidates and inform them when and how they would quit the race and fall-in-line behind Joe Biden. Clyburn was then triggered to initiate his endorsement and begin the rapid-fire process.
Within 48 hours all members of the club and candidates had their instructions and proceeded to follow-through on the plan. They had no choice. If they did not comply they would suffer the consequences of a fully aligned club hierarchy who would target them personally and financially. The plan worked flawlessly.
As part of the coordinated deal Representative James Clyburn was put in charge of the Biden campaign; Clyburn stunningly admitted this immediately after the strategy went public.”
Could it be that Maricopa County ballots (files) from the 2020 primary were used in the electronic tabulation machines as files to enhance the 2021 general election? If so, that would imply this strategy to manipulate the tabulation machines was in place for quite a long time prior to the November 2020 election.
We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out. What we know right now is the Arizona State Senate no longer wants background conversations with county officials; instead wants the Maricopa county board of supervisors to appear for public hearings where the content and discussion are visible for everyone to see.
President Trump on Thursday released a new statement on the ‘deleted database’ and voting irregularities uncovered in the Maricopa election audit.
Wednesday afternoon, it was discovered that “the entire database” for the 2020 General election in Maricopa, showing the “Results Tally and Reporting,” has been deleted!
Maricopa County Supervisor Chairman Jack Sellers received a letter from Arizona Senate President Karen Fann demanding answers:
“We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine “EMSPrimary” has been deleted. This removes election-related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena. In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, “Results Tally and Reporting,” is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election-related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed. Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?” the letter stated.
President Trump released a statement on the irregularities uncovered and said the 2020 election was a “corrupt, third-world election.”

The president of the Arizona State Senate asked the chairman of the Maricopa Board of Supervisors in a letter on Tuesday to address “three serious issues that have arisen in the course of the Senate’s ongoing audit of the returns of the November 3, 2020, general election in Maricopa County. “
Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann identified those three issues in her letter to Maricopa County Supervisors Board Chairman Jack Sellers as: (1) ongoing non-compliance with legislative subpoenas, (2) chain of custody, and ballot organization anomalies, and (3) deleted databases.
As Breitbart News reported on December 16:
Arizona Senate Republicans on Tuesday issued subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for a scanned ballot audit and ‘full forensic audit of ballot tabulation equipment, the software for that equipment and the election management system used in the 2020 general election.’
The audit of Maricopa County’s November 2020 election results began on April 23 and may continue into the summer.
“The first issue concerns Maricopa County’s apparent intent to renege on its previous commitment to comply fully with the legislative subpoenas issued on January 13, 2021, which, as you know, Judge Thomason found were valid and enforceable,” Fann wrote in Tuesday’s letter, adding:
To date, attorneys for Maricopa County have refused to produce virtual images of routers used in connection with the general election, relying on a conclusory and unsupported assertion that providing the routers would somehow “endanger the lives of law enforcement officers, their operations, or the protected health information and personal data of Maricopa County’s citizens.” . . .
Nevertheless, in an effort to resolve the dispute regarding production of the routers, we propose that agents of CyFIR, an experienced digital forensics firm and subcontractor of Cyber Ninjas, review virtual images of the relevant routers in Maricopa County facilities and in the presence of representatives of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
Fann then addressed the second issue, chain of custody and ballot organization anomolies:
As the audit has progressed, the Senate’s contractors have become aware of apparent omissions, inconsistencies, and anomalies relating to Maricopa County’s handling, organization, and storage of ballots. We hope you can assist us in understanding these issues, including specifically the following:
The County has not provided any chain-of-custody documentation for the ballots. Does such documentation exist, and if so, will it be produced?
The bags in which the ballots were stored are not sealed, although the audit team has found at the bottom of many boxes cut seals of the type that would have sealed a ballot bag. Why were these seals placed at the bottom of the boxes?
Batches within a box are frequently separated by only a divider without any indication of the corresponding batch numbers. In some cases, the batch dividers are missing altogether. This lack of organization has significantly complicated and delayed the audit team’s ballot processing efforts. What are the County’s procedures for sorting, organizing, and packaging ballot batches?
Most of the ballot boxes were sealed merely with regular tape and not secured by any kind of tamper-evident seal. Is that the County’s customary practice for storing ballots?
The audit team has encountered a significant number of instances in which there is a disparity between the actual number of ballots contained in a batch and the total denoted on the pink report slip accompanying the batch. In most of these instances, the total on the pink report slip is greater than the number of ballots in the batch, although there are a few instances in which the total is lower. What are the reasons for these discrepancies?
Fann then addressed the issue of deleted data bases:
We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine “EMSPrimary” has been deleted. This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena.
In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, “Results Tally and Reporting,” is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed.
Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?
Fann closed by inviting Board Chair Sellers and appropriate Maricopa County employees to meet with her personally at a hearing room in the Arizona State Capital on Tuesday, May 18 to address these three serious issues.
