GOP Arizona Senate President Admitted In Email That She Didn't Believe Audit Would Uncover Fraud [View all]

Source: Newsweek

Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, admitted in a February email that she does not believe the widely criticized election audit of Maricopa County will uncover any widespread voter fraud.

Fann and Arizona Republicans have pushed forward the 2020 election auditómotivated by former President Donald Trump and his allies' baseless claims that there was widespread voter fraud. Local GOP officials in Maricopa County have repeatedly refuted these groundless allegations. Arizona also already carried out a hand recount, which reaffirmed President Joe Biden's victory over Trump.

"I cannot begin to explain how much I really hate this whole thing," Fann wrote in an early February email, which was released publicly along with hundreds of others by the Arizona Senate due to a public records request from American Oversight. Local newspaper The Arizona Republic first reported on the email.

"Personally I don't think we will find anything outside of the normal irregularities we have every election but am willing to go this extra mile if it puts these questions and concerns to rest," Fann continued.

Of course, the real goal is not really to find fraud, but to try to create a pretext to allow Republicans to disregard election results, seize power and bar people from even voting.
