Arizona recount: Why Republicans are still tallying votes


Anthony Zurcher - North America reporter
Thu, May 13, 2021, 1:23 AM

It's been seven months since the 2020 US presidential election. Donald Trump may not have conceded, but he's out of office.

Joe Biden has been president for more than 100 days. The drumbeat of policy-making has moved on to pandemic relief and infrastructure spending.

And yet in Mar-a-Lago, Trump is still complaining about his election loss. In Washington, Republicans just booted Liz Cheney, who said Biden was legitimately elected, from her congressional leadership post.

And in Phoenix, Arizona, they're still counting - or technically, auditing - ballots.

1. What a waste of time and money - not to mention plain insane:

Republican audit backers theorise that if they can find substantive evidence of fraud then it means Trump really won Arizona. If Trump really won Arizona, maybe he really won other states he narrowly lost. And if he really won enough other states, then he really won the election.

All this requires extreme logical contortions, but it's what they're rolling with.

3. But what would it cost to conduct all those audits??

And wouldn't what it's costing in Arizona be better spent on something less fruitless??

5. When is the DOJ going to stop this?

There have been enough serious violations by this Qanon company to warrant it.

Seems suspicious to me that after this Qanon company was given voter information that they are going to purge up to 145,000 voters from the rolls. How many of those 145,000 are Republicans?

6. When they have authority to do so? Good question

but Iím guessing thatís the answer in a nutshell. I share your frustration and am equally impatient and concerned. And hope they (DOJ) will take action when there is a clear cut violation of federal election law by ó or ignored by ó the State of Arizona.

9. Why? Because they're delusional & in denial of reality.

It's a psychosis.
