Opinion: The Republican-controlled Arizona Senate has made so many poor decisions that no matter what its election audit finds, it won’t be credible
Editorial board/Arizona Republic
Republicans in the Arizona Legislature have set aside dollars, hired consultants, procured the hardware and software to conduct what they call “an audit” of the 2020 presidential election in Maricopa County.
What they don’t have is the moral authority to make it credible.
Their conduct post-election has been so nakedly partisan that whatever their audit finds, its results will not be believed. They’ll be mocked and derided.
State Senate Republicans insist they are not trying to reverse the election, but are rather trying to build greater trust in the system.
But how can anyone trust them?
Senate has repeatedly undermined trust.
