Democrats Fail to Stop Vote Audit in Arizona, Won’t Post $1 Million Dollar Bond

Earlier today we reported on the audit taking place in Maricopa County which started today. Democrats sued to have the audit stopped and were told they would need to post a $1 Million dollar bond to provide for any extra cost. According to a tweet by Jeremy Duda, the Democrats will not post the bond this is allowing the audit to continue.

“The pause is off. @azdemparty won’t post the $1m bond that a judge demanded in order to halt the @ArizonaAudit for the weekend so he can ensure laws governing confidentiality of ballots and voter registration info are followed.”

National File reported on the Democrats lawsuit against the audit, “Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christoper Coury has said that the forensic audit of all 2.1 million 2020 ballots from the Arizona county, which started on Friday, should be temporarily halted from Friday at 5 p.m. until 12 p.m. on Monday. Coury said that he would like to know the policies and procedures that are in place to confirm that the audit is legal and legitimate, following a lawsuit filed late Thursday by state Democrats…”

“However, Court also confirmed that he would like the Democrats to put up $1 million in order to halt the audit, to fund any potential increase in costs that would come as a result of the temporary halt. At the time of writing, there had been no response from the Democrats as to whether they were willing to pony up the money, meaning it is unclear whether the halt will in fact take place or not. Kory Langhofer, a lawyer for the Arizona Senate, asked for any halt to be delayed, so that the Senate would have a chance to immediately appeal the decision by Judge Coury.”

State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted about the judges ruling earlier today. “Only if the Democrats pay the $1 million bond.”

Roopali Desai attorney for the Democrats said the party won’t put up the bond. This then ends this attempt from the Democrats to stop the forensic audit. We will see if they try again in some fashion to interfere with the audit.
