A few days ago, video from the Maricopa County Elections Department showed people diving through dumpsters.
They were looking for evidence of any wrongdoing in the 2020 presidential election.
Now, it has been claimed that these dumpster divers have discovered shredded ballots from the 2020 presidential election.
All of this is recorded on video camera.
According to local FOX 10 News in Phoenix:
New video released by the Maricopa County Elections Department shows people rifling through dumpsters outside the tabulation center.
The department released the video on March 9 following internet claims that shredded ballots were discovered in a dumpster outside the building near Third Avenue and Jefferson Street in Downtown Phoenix.
The video was taken last Friday afternoon and first shows two women at the main entrance of the building. One of the women is taking photos and is talking to someone inside. She is then handed a piece of paper, which elections officials said was a voter registration form.
One of the women is then seen on video the following day outside the tabulation center. A camera at the north dock shows the woman and two men getting out of an SUV near dumpsters behind the building.
One of the men is seen digging through the dumpster and pulls out a yellow bag.
After taking some selfies and pulling out what appears to be a piece of wood, the three allegedly tried to break into the warehouse, but they never made it inside.
“I want to be very clear: I can say with 100% certainty that the 2.1 million legally voted ballots from the November General Election are safe and accounted for in the Elections Department vault, under 24/7 surveillance,” Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer said in a statement to FOX 10.
Richer also said none of the ballots have been shredded or thrown away.
“I do not know what was in the yellow bags that have appeared in photos online because I have not seen the contents of these bags,” Richer continued. “After speaking with the voter registration team, I’ve confirmed that we shred a variety of non-classified documents. In addition, we also destroy deceased voter ballots since they could never be legally tabulated.”
Video evidence of people going through dumpsters looking for shredded ballots has also been confirmed by local ABC News in Arizona:
Since the 2020 general election, officials working at Maricopa County’s Election Tabulation Center have faced several security threats.
The first came just hours after polls closed in November when protestors made their way inside the usually secure building as ballots were being tabulated. Later, a swarm of protesters gathered outside, where they spent weeks claiming the vote count was fraudulent.
The latest threat was captured on surveillance cameras last week. A group of people attempted to get inside the tabulation center where more than 2.1 million ballots from the 2020 election are still being held.
According to the Maricopa County Elections Department, a woman drove towards the bays behind the building on March 5. Surveillance video shows the woman, who has identified herself online as Staci Burk, taking photos and videos of the open bay doors Friday.
Burk posted several videos on social media pages claiming boxes filled with ballots were visible and accessible to the public.
Surveillance video shows similar activity on March 6.
A group of three are seen approaching, then inspecting items inside dumpsters outside the facility. One man, with the help of a step stool, jumps inside and removes a yellow bag filled with shredded documents. Then, the group attempts to open doors into the building, to no avail.
Burke took to social media after the “dumpster dive” to post photos of shredded documents she claimed were voted ballots from the 2020 general election.
The photos and claims quickly spread, fueling those who continue to cast doubt on Arizona’s election results.
Now, the fact checkers are already claiming that these are “not” shredded ballots.
There has been no investigation into the contents of what was found in the dumpster.
Nothing has been confirmed one way or another.
Furthermore, an audit in Maricopa County is just about to begin.
So how is it possible to “fact check” these claims?
Hint: it’s not… unless you have an agenda to push.
Probably won’t get to audit all the Maricopa County
US county in Arizona votes.
Some may have been shredded and found in the dumpster by the location where the votes may have intended to be stored for 22 months…???…🤔 pic.twitter.com/0ZP3poZDFC

The official Republican Party in Arizona is now involved in these accusations.
Let us be very clear: if these shredded materials were indeed not ballots, then there would be no need for an ongoing investigation.
GOP Senators are worried that if the contents are given to Arizona’s Attorney General, the evidence will “evaporate” as though it never existed.
The Arizona Mirror reports:
A top-ranking Senate Republican told a Pinal County woman who claims to have found shredded 2020 ballots in a trash bin that she should turn them over to him and warned against trusting the Republican attorney general with the “smoking gun” evidence of election fraud.
Sen. Sonny Borrelli, the Senate majority whip, also speculated that “high-level people” want the Senate’s investigation into the election to go away, and that the only way to make that happen would be if he were killed.
Borrelli told Staci Burk and another, unnamed woman that she should provide the shredded ballots to him and to the Senate’s sergeant-at-arms.
“If they seize that stuff from you, that stuff could disappear,” Borrelli said of the Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, which he said was uninterested in ferreting out election fraud. “If you turn it over to them, it’s going to evaporate.”
But Borrelli told the Arizona Mirror on Wednesday that he was merely exaggerating in an attempt to convince the woman to trust him.
Burk claims to have found shredded ballots from the 2020 general election in a Dumpster behind the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center on Saturday. She provided a recording of the call to the Arizona Mirror on Tuesday.
Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and elections department spokeswoman Megan Gilbertson say the ballots Burk found were not cast in the 2020 general election. It’s unclear where the ballots came from. Surveillance camera footage of the Dumpster from Friday and Saturday, when Burk visited the building, doesn’t show who put the bag into the trash bin.
Borrelli told the Mirror that he spoke with Burk on Sunday after being bombarded with calls about her allegations. She was “all over the place” and made it clear that she didn’t trust the attorney general, whom she claimed had ignored other alleged evidence of election fraud she has, so Borrelli said he tried to convince her to hand over the ballots she said she found. Borrelli said he might have gone a little overboard and been a little overzealous, but if he’d told her she should trust the attorney general, she wouldn’t have provided the shredded ballots.
“If it’s evidence of a crime, it’s got to be turned over to law enforcement. So, I’m trying to convince this lady who doesn’t trust anybody, so I’m trying to use whatever communications skills I can to convince this lady to trust me to at least let me take a look at them, verify what she’s got is true and correct,” Borrelli told the Mirror.
He also said that if the attorney general investigated the shredded papers before the Senate and declared that there was no foul play, some people would say it was a conspiracy and a cover-up. He noted that some people are spreading conspiracy theories that a weekend fire at Hickman’s Family Farms in Arlington, which is owned by the family of Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman, was set to destroy fraudulent ballots, saying, “This is how crazy it is.”
The senator would not directly comment on what may happen if the attorney general got a hold of the alleged shredded ballots before the Senate examined them. But he told the Mirror, “Do I believe the attorney general is corrupt? No.”
Borrelli said he’s the primary reason why the Senate has sought to investigate the 2020 election, describing himself as the “instigator” who prodded his colleagues to action. He added that it would be harder for his “high-level” enemies to silence him than Burk.
“If anything freaking happened to me in the Senate, if I got hurt, if I got killed, this whole thing would go away because there’s nobody in the Senate that would push,” he said. “They can try to silence you – you’re a private citizen. They can’t do anything to me. They can bully me all they want, but they know they can’t take me out… unless they whack me out or if I have a suicide.”
It is unclear exactly when the call took place. Burk claims to have found shredded ballots from the 2020 general election in a Dumpster behind the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center on Saturday. Burk provided a recording of the call to the Arizona Mirror on Tuesday.
Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and elections department spokeswoman Megan Gilbertson say the ballots were not cast in the 2020 general election. It’s unclear where the ballots came from. Surveillance camera footage of the Dumpster from Friday and Saturday, when Burk visited the building, doesn’t show who put the bag into the trash bin.
The Senate, motivated by the baseless and thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory alleging President Joe Biden defeated former President Donald Trump through widespread election fraud, is preparing for an audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County. It has subpoenaed all 2.1 million ballots cast in November, as well as tabulation machines and other materials. Senate President Karen Fann has not yet chosen an auditor, and the ballots and machines are still being held by county election officials.
He also referred to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, who fought the Senate in court for two months in a legal challenge to the subpoenas, as “corrupt bastards.”
“I want them in freaking jail,” Borrelli said of the supervisors.
Instead of jumping to conclusions, why can’t we all agree to a simple forensic audit?
This would prove once and for all whether or not the 2020 presidential election was legitimate.
The evidence found in dumpsters is certainly incriminating.
So… let’s confirm whether or not these are indeed shredded ballots.
If you care about the transparency and legitimacy of our elections, shouldn’t you want to investigate this?
Whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, we hope that you stand for election integrity, honesty, and transparency!
What a mess the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) have gotten themselves into. After refusing to provide ballots to the Arizona Senate for months, as soon as the judge ordered the MCBOS to hand them over, shredded ballots are found in a dumpster. pic.twitter.com/CMRICQ6I9q
