In advance of the Arizona audit results coming out on Friday, September 24, we bring you this good news out of Maricopa County . . .
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted on Friday…to settle with the Arizona Senate, agreeing to the appointment by the court of a Special Master to handle questions involving the County’s routers as part of the audit of the 2020 general election.
“Under threat of losing hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue…today Maricopa County settled with the State Senate, a victory for election integrity and the Arizona taxpayer,” said Senate President Karen Fann. “The agreement set up a Special Master paid for by the County, who will get the answers to questions the Senate has concerning the routers and splunk logs used in the 2020 Election…”
HUGE win for the Az Senate today! Maricopa settlement gives us all the data needed to complete the review of the routers & splunk log to the most comprehensive election audit in history. We got everything we need and more. Maricopa County goes home with its tail between its legs

“The Senate will finally get the answers to the questions asked for in the subpoenas issued to the County months ago,” continued Sen. Fann. “In addition, the County has agreed to drop its Notice of Claim of $2.8 million to replace election equipment delivered to the Senate as required in the January subpoena. Experts…told us…nothing…[was]compromised or damaged by the audit…There is no reason taxpayers should be on the hook for purchasing the necessary new election equipment.”…
In late August, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office…determined the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is in violation of state law for failing to comply with the Arizona Senate’s legislative subpoena.
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO) notified the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors that if they failed to resolve the violation within 30 days, the AGO…would notify the Arizona Treasurer to withhold state revenue from Maricopa County until MCBOS complies…
