The old proverbial goes “it’s better late than never”.
Well, after months of fighting against election fraud Senate Republicans from Arizona got a huge win.
A judge has ruled that Maricopa County must hand over 2.1 million ballots in order for them to be audited by the Arizona Senate.
The election equipment used in Maricopa county will be audited too.
Senate Republicans from Arizona were ecstatic and released a letter that was quoted saying ““we are grateful for the Superior Court judge’s ruling”.
Arizona Senate Republicans want the judge to order 2.1 million voted ballots to be turned over and allow Senate-hired auditors to examine vote-counting machines and related computer software. https://t.co/sZDYKj1unZ

It’s been over four months since the 2020 election, hopefully all the evidence isn’t already wiped out.
The Epoch Times covered the story in great detail, see what they had to share:
A judge on Friday ruled that Maricopa County must provide some 2.1 million ballots from the Nov. 3 election to the Arizona state Senate and allow access to its election equipment to conduct an audit.
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that subpoenas issued by Arizona’s state Senate are valid and should be enforced, and he disputed arguments from Maricopa County officials saying the subpoenas are unlawful. The county previously stated that multiple audits have been sufficient and said ballots should be sealed.
“The Court finds that the subpoenas are legal and enforceable,” Thomason wrote (pdf) in his ruling. “There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections.”

Fox 10 News chipped in too:
A judge has ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election that saw Democrat Joe Biden win in the state.
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason’s decision on Feb. 26 comes after a protracted battle between the Republican-controlled state Senate and the GOP-dominated Maricopa County board over subpoenas issued by the Senate.
The board contended that the ballots were secret, that the Legislature had no right to access them and that the subpoenas issued by Senate President Karen Fann were for an illegitimate purpose, among other arguments.
The Senate’s lawyers contended that the constitution gives the Legislature the role of maintaining the purity of elections and make sure voter integrity is protected, that the subpoenas were legal and proper use of legislative power.
Thomason agreed with the Senate on all those arguments, saying the subpoenas “are legal and enforceable.”
Dems were so sure that the court was going to deny Arizona’s Senate the right to have a subpoena for the 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County.
They were wrong!
