Tucson Republican challenges recount in Maricopa County to a count-off

A Republican election researcher from Tucson is challenging the Arizona Senate to a test of the post-election hand count going on in Maricopa County.

Benny White, who was the GOP candidate for Pima County recorder in 2020, made the challenge in a Tuesday letter to Senate President Karen Fann.

The offer: Pick any box of ballots from Maricopa County’s 2020 election, and he will provide a count of all votes in all races in that box, by querying the digital record of votes cast. Then they can compare White’s computerized count with a hand count carried out by the people conducting the so-called “audit” at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.

“We want them to take any box they want, either unopened or opened,” White said in an interview. “Just tell us what that box number is, and we’ll tell you how many votes each candidate in every race on the ballot, how many votes they got.”

2. Weird, huh?

Bear in mind Tucson is pretty liberal. He may be a decent sort trying to keep the fraudit honest.

4. Here's the key paragraph

They say in the letter to Fann: “Our objective here is to show there was and continues to be sufficient official public record information available to assure the public that our elections are conducted legally and fairly. This ‘forensic audit’ you have authorized is unnecessary because it creates voter confusion and delays the finality of the election that the certified winners, including you and your colleagues, deserve.”
