Is the epilogue of the US election fraud affair nevertheless approaching?

By: Peter Marko Tase

In the state of Arizona, election officials discovered less than 200 cases of potential voter fraud among more than three million ballots cast in the November 2020 presidential election; these figures are published by major media channels across the United States. Unfortunately, they raise more doubts than clarity, as the election process, not only in Arizona but also in some other U.S. states, has been severely tarnished.

Former President Donald Trump’s claims about stolen elections are legitimate and well-founded in constitutional changes, confirming the fact that Arizona has been the focus of fraudulent electoral proceedings in terms of eligibility, accurate vote counting and the participation of illegal immigrants. President Trump’s allies continue to deny the legitimacy of the vote in Maricopa, the most populous county in Arizona.

In addition, Arizona Republicans have also begun a formal review of voting in the November 2020 election, believing that further scrutiny is needed to address voters ’concerns about the legitimacy of the election result and reveal possible errors in the election process.

The Republican-controlled Arizona State Senate has ordered a review of about 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County. In Arizona, where more than 3.3 million ballots were cast, Biden won by only about 10,000 votes. Although these numbers are official, doubts remain about the legitimacy of any Arizona ballot count.

They stole the second term from Trump

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, said the audit will help lawmakers identify where the gaps are and fix the problems. Senator Karen Fann is always looking for bright opportunities, she said: “When almost half of the electorate says they lack confidence and have questions about the integrity of our system, it is time for someone to move and answer them.” The big media, which are virtually all on the Democratic side, criticise the audit, saying the Arizona election results have already been confirmed and that the review will not change that; in doing so, they refer to the Secretary of State’s office in the Arizona capital, Phoenix. In addition, the major media in the United States give a lot of room to those who claim that “revision is unnecessary and could undermine confidence in the electoral system by increasing the number of unproven allegations.” Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a member of the Democratic Party, on the other hand, called for an investigation into whether a Republican-led audit violates electoral law, saying “the Senate has failed to provide transparency on how ballots and voting equipment and how the audit will be carried out”.

Although the Democratic Party’s propaganda machine has been quite successful in misinforming the public, the number of cases of electoral fraud and voting practices on the ground illustrates the mechanism of irregularities that robbed President Trump of his second term.

Arizona election fraud has inflicted a major wound on American democracy and undermined the integrity of its inalienable institutions. The confusion we are witnessing in Maricopa County really raises the question of whether America is still a ‘shining city on a hill’, as President Ronald W. Reagan once said in 1988. It is certain that the world today sees America as a country that does not allow itself to witness an instructive and good example of how to strengthen public institutions.
