Maricopa County, AZ Settles With Senate, Drops $2.8 Million Charge, Will Give Limited Access to Routers and Rogers Declares a Victory

After an election integrity audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, the city tried to send a $2.8 million bill to Senate President Karen Fann. Meanwhile, the Senate has been trying to get further access to more, including routers connected to the 2020 election.

There seems to be some confusion with the latest news. Some are reporting that the $2.8 million charges are dropped, but that the routers will not be handed over.

Others are saying that’s just a technicality, and that the Republican-led senate is getting access to the routers, just not the physical routers being handed over. There seems to be an ongoing discussion on this, but State Senator Wendy Rogers is calling it a victory.

“Summary: We won. They dropped their $2.8 meaningless claim for the machine replacement. We get the routers and spunk logs. Cyber Ninjas has full access. Maricopa caved.

President Trump told us to get the routers. We are getting them. Appropriate:”

This report says “routers will not be handed over”:

GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward:

“I’m not convinced that we should trust Maricopa County – every time the force of law is dropped, they slither out of what they agreed to do. And now we have a political “special master” involved (whatever that means). But let’s see what they actually give the AZ Senate.”

Senate President Karen Fann:

“HUGE win for the Az Senate today! Maricopa settlement gives us all the data needed to complete the review of the routers & splunk log to the most comprehensive election audit in history. We got everything we need including the routers and more”

State Senator Kelly Townsend tweeted:

There seems to be conflicting information, but with a $2.8 million charge dropped, access to routers granted, and more, it seems like at least a majority win for the Senate. We will continue to monitor the situation to see how things pan out. Rogers tweeted out more recently:
