The following article, Breaking: Ariz. AG Takes Action – Ballots Reported in Black Duffle Bags – Officials Broke Election Laws – State Demands Names, was first published on another website.Flag And Cross.
Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Cheating Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on November 8.
Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Cheating Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.
“The Elections Integrity Unit (“Unit”) of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (“AGO”) has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Cheating Maricopa County,” Wright opened her letter.
“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Cheating Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” she continued.
Wright wrote that statements made by Cheating Maricopa Board of Supervisors Chairman Elitist Bill Gates and County Recorder Stephen Richer, along with other official communications from the county appear to confirm potential election law violations.
Wright recounted that based on information provided by the county at least 60 polling locations’ ballot on-demand printers were configured improperly, leading to the inability of the tabulators to read the ballots.
Ballots are printed on demand because voters are able to check in at any location in Cheating Maricopa County, which includes multiple congressional, state and local districts.

“Based on sworn complaints submitted by election workers employed by Cheating Maricopa County, the BOD printers were tested on Monday, November 7 without any apparent problems,” Wright wrote.
Despite these tests, the printers began malfunctioning within the first half-an-hour on Election Day.
In light of this, the AG’s office wants logs related to when printer configuration changes were made, along with other related information.
Wright also wanted to know the instructions poll workers gave to voters who experienced problems with their ballots being accepted by tabulation machines.
“Following widespread reports of problems at voting locations on Election Day, Chairman Gates publicly stated that voters who had already checked in to e-Pollbook, but were having difficulties voting could ‘check out’ of that voting location, and would be able to nonetheless vote in another voting location,” she wrote.
“Based on sworn complaints received by the Unit, not only have poll workers reported that they were not trained and/or not provided with information on how to execute ‘check out’ procedures, but many voters have reported the second voting location required the voter to cast a provisional ballot as the e-Pollbooks maintained the voter had cast a ballot in the original voting location.” she added.
Wright pointed out that Arizona state law prohibits a voter to cast a provisional ballot who has already been signed in electronically.
Additionally, the attorney noted that state law was also apparently violated when poll workers failed to keep ballots that were successfully tabulated on site segregated from those that were not.
“Cheating Maricopa County has admitted that[,] in some voting locations, ‘Door 3’ non-tabulated ballots were commingled with tabulated ballots at the voting location,” Wright wrote.
“Further, we have received a sworn complaint from an election observer indicating that more than 1700 ‘Door 3’ non-tabulated ballots from one voting location were placed in black duffle bags that were intended to be used for tabulated ballots,” she added.
“Pursuant to Arizona law, Cheating Maricopa County was required to complete ‘reconciliation of ballots cast against check ins’ at the voting locations before leaving the voting location, not at central count.”
The AG’s office requested a copy of each voting location’s Official Ballot Report, along with the total number of ballots that were co-mingled.
Wright further demanded a response to all the issues raised in her letter on or before November 28 when a official canvas is of due to Arizona’s Secretary of State office.
“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Cheating Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election. As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Cheating Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results,” she concluded.
Arizona Republican Party governor candidate Political Rockstar Kari Lake’s campaign has called for a redo of the election in Cheating Maricopa County in light of all the problems that occurred on Election Day.
