They’re REALLY afraid of this audit aren’t they?
Reports claim that a mysterious white powder sent to Karen Fann is now being investigated by authorities.
No one yet knows what the mysterious powder is, but a letter with any sort of powder is never good news, and the audit has been facing significant pushback from Democrats and RINOs.
Someone clearly wishes Karen Fann harm….even if the powder is harmless stunt meant to intimidate her.
They want to weaken her resolve on something, and I am willing to bet that it’s audit related.
Not some personal vendetta or a warning for some other position she has taken or policy she helped to implement.
Take a look:
The Department of Public Safety made a visit to Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann’s office Wednesday to investigate reports of an “unidentified white powder” that arrived at the office in a mailed letter.
An aide in the Senate President’s office opened a letter addressed to Fann at about 4:30 pm on Wednesday, and saw a “small amount of substance” inside the letter, according to Mike Philipsen, Director of Communications for the Senate GOP. Philipsen also said that DPS sent a hazardous materials team to the senate at about 6:30 pm on the same day to run tests.
In an email on Thursday, Philipsen wrote that on Wednesday, “an assistant in President Fann’s office opened a letter addressed to the President. A small amount of substance was observed from the mailing…Out of an abundance of caution, the assistant contacted the Department of Public Safety, and its Hazmat team was alerted.”
DPS Public Information Officer Bart Graves confirmed in an email to Newsweek that, “on May 19 at approximately 1629 hours, DPS responded to the Arizona State Senate in response to a suspicious package call. The package was secured by DPS Hazardous Materials Response Unit and submitted to the DPS Crime Lab. Investigation continues regarding the package.”
Local ABC 15 had more:
Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Petersen said in a tweet late Wednesday that the package contained an “unidentified white powder” and that it was sent to the office of Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, who is leading the audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election.
“The personal attacks on @FannKfann by some media and others is truly disturbing. If you don't agree with the policy, disagree with it but no need to attack her personally. Now this. Today someone sent an unidentified white powder to her office. Not OK folks. DPS is investigating,” read Petersen's tweet.
Disagreement around the Senate’s and Cyber Ninja’s audit of more than 2 million ballots cast in Maricopa County during the 2020 election intensified further this week after Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a Republican who was elected during the 2020 election, and other county officials, raised concerns about the audit team's security, inspections, and alleged claims.
