Equipment Used is Maricopa County Recount will be Destroyed

The equipment officials used to recount ballots during the audit of the 2o20 election will be destroyed by county officials over fears that the equipment will have been tampered with during the recount.

The Democrat Secretary of State Kate Hobbs wrote a letter to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors stating her concerns over equipment.

From The Daily Caller:

“I have grave concerns regarding the security and integrity of these machines, given that the chain of custody, a critical security tenet, has been compromised and election officials do not know what was done to the machines while under Cyber Ninjas’ control,” Hobbs wrote.

Hobbs alleged the “loss of custody” could jeopardize the integrity of the machines and future elections. Hobbs said she believes once “election officials lose custody and control over voting systems and components, those devices should not be reused in future elections.”

Maricopa Deputy County Attorney Joseph E. La Rue responded to Hobbs’ letter, noting “the Board shares your concerns” about “any future use by Maricopa County of the election equipment that was subpoenaed by the Arizona Senate, because they placed it under control of persons not certified to handle election equipment in the United States, such as the Cyber Ninjas and others.”

“Maricopa County will not use the subpoenaed election equipment in any future election.”

The equipment that was used in the election and reviewed in the audit will be scrapped as a result of uncertified individuals using and examining the machines.
