With the continued influx of lawsuits over irregularities in Dominion’s vote counting system, Arizona state legislative leaders on Friday, Dec. 4, called for an urgent audit of Dominion’s voting software and equipment in the controversial Maricopa County.

A press release from the Arizona Legislature reads, “Senate President Karen Fann and Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers today called an independent audit of the Dominion software and equipment used by Maricopa County in the 2020 General Election.”

The statement continues, “A significant number of voters believe that fraud occurred and with the number of irregularities it is easy to understand why. Especially concerning are the allegations made surrounding the vendor Dominion.”

Maricopa County, is being especially investigated because it is where, so far, the largest number of illegal ballots found and awarded to Democratic candidate Joe Biden with the help of Dominion.

Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, is at the center of the conflict because he rushed to sign legislation to have the most populous county, Maricopa County, which usually determines who the winner of Arizona is, use the Dominion machines in the 2020 election.

He was strongly criticized, both by his fellow Republicans and by President Trump himself, who when Ducey decided to certify the alleged victory of Democratic candidate Biden on Nov. 30, wrote a harsh message on his Twitter account addressing the Arizona governor saying, “Why is he rushing to put a Democrat in office, especially when so many horrible things concerning voter fraud are being revealed at the hearing going on right now. @OANN What is going on with @dougducey? Republicans will long remember!”

As noted by The Gateway Pundit, another issue that draws powerful attention to Arizona’s elections and is not without its suspicions is that the 2020 election saw a 79.9% voter turnout, the highest in the nation and the highest turnout in the state’s history.

It is not just the record turnout that draws attention, the controversy is that on Nov. 16, 2020, Arizona reported a 65.9% voter turnout; while now, the secretary of state’s own recommended election results website, Arizona Vote, reports a 79.9% voter turnout.

There is definitely something wrong with the numbers and that is why it is hoped that a proper audit of Dominion’s data and machines will clear up several questions, which so far only lead one to believe that there was a scandalous case of voter fraud in Arizona.
