Demand for forensic audits of 2020 election in all 50 states rapidly gaining support
Originally signed by 41 state legislators from 15 states, open letter prompted by Maricopa County voting review has now been signed by 150 from 38 states.
“… legislators from the states of Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont and Virginia have not signed it. And in the two largest red states, only one state lawmaker from each has signed on: Rep. Steve Toth (R-Texas), and Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-Florida).
Although the number of those who have signed is growing, it is still miniscule compared to the total number of state legislators in the U.S.
As of Sept. 30, 2021, there were 7,383 state legislative seats — the majority of which are Republican, Ballotpedia reports.
After the 2020 Election, there are 19 state houses controlled by Democrats and 29 controlled by Republicans.
The call for ongoing election audits has been described by Democrats and the mainstream media as a circus, a lost cause, a failed attempt, misinformation, and even a “fake election audit.”
However, Kari Lake, the frontrunner in the 2022 Republican primary to succeed outgoing Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Doucey, has called for incumbent Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat who is also running for governor, to be “locked up” over the state’s alleged election fraud.
Lake says she wouldn’t have certified Arizona’s election as Ducey did, and still supports decertifying the state’s election.
Hobbs, meanwhile, has claimed that “Trump is on the side of the freaking Nazis.”
“The 2020 election was the most secure election in our state’s history,” Hobbs maintains. “Unfortunately, we have elected leaders who continue to promote falsehoods. We need to change the leadership in our state.”
