As the contentious audit of Maricopa County, Arizona’s 2020 election results draws nearer to a close, audit officials still lack access to computer equipment that auditors believe is critical to ensure a full review of the county’s records.
Maricopa County officials in May refused to hand over routers requested by election auditors at the time, claiming that to do so would pose a security risk due to the county’s intermingling of various departments on multiple routers.
The routers “support [more than 50] departments, not just elections operations,” including “critical law enforcement data that, by law, cannot be disclosed, as well as Maricopa County residents’ protected health information and full social security numbers,” a county official claimed in May.
At the time the issue seemed to be heading toward a standoff, with the county citing a security privilege and the auditors pointing to a judge’s ruling directing the county to comply with the state Senate’s subpoena.
Yet several months later, as the bulk of the audit work is winding down, the routers remain wholly absent from the evidence file. During a state Senate hearing this week, lead auditor Ben Cotton stated that it was “critically important” for investigators to obtain access to the routers to fully complete the audit.

Maybe you cowards could face the public in person, maybe attend the state hearings in person.
