Breaking news is coming out of Arizona directly affecting America’s audit in Maricopa County.
Allegedly, the Arizona Senate is scheduled to go home until January 2022.
Only during the biggest audit of our lifetime!
Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend sent a message out on Twitter last week about how the audit will not get addressed if the Senate is adjourned for the YEAR.
We won't be able to address this if we go home for the year. pic.twitter.com/NOH6V8XjJq

Townsend’s tweet came after Christina Bobb from OAN reported on Arizona certifying 2.1 million ballots and the consequence of the audit showing missing ballots.
Bobb stated the following:
Gov. Doug Ducey and SOS Katie Hobbs certified 2.1 million ballots, if the Arizona audit falls short of that, the Arizona Legislature will need to carefully consider withdrawing their electors. The Margin of victory is 10,457- if they are missing more ballots than the margin of victory- then either fraud occurred or the election was poorly managed and there’s no way to know the actual outcome without a criminal investigation.
Now, if Arizona Governor Doug Ducey calls a special session, then there is hope that the audit can be concluded and actions taken to restore election integrity.
Otherwise, no election laws would be passed until 2022.
However, the audit is timely and of crucial consequence.
And the Democrats in Arizona know that and are in full-blown PANIC mode.
Katie Hobbs is in full blown panic, meltdown, ass clinching, red-faced lying mode.
You be the judge:
I am concerned about what happens when this report comes out because we know #1 the election that we certified those certified results are an pic.twitter.com/bQFm34nLcG

What happens when you certify a fraudulent election?
Ask Katie Hobbs and Doug Ducey.
They are in extreme panic right now.
We warned you.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs recently said “we are running out of time” and Republicans are “laying the groundwork to steal” the 2024 presidential election.
Business Insider has more on Hobbs’ audit-induced panic:
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs last week urged the US Senate to pass the sweeping voting-rights legislation known at the For the People Act, arguing that “democracy is under siege” in her home state.
In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, Hobbs deemed GOP efforts to undermine the confidence in the 2020 election as part of a strategy to “steal” the 2024 presidential election.
“Republicans aren’t just protesting the results of our most recent presidential election … they are laying the groundwork to steal the next one,” she wrote. “They are sowing doubt about our electoral process to justify a crackdown on voting rights: The 2020 election was insecure, they say, and so our next election must be airtight.”
Republicans in the state are currently carrying out a partisan audit of the results in Maricopa County, which for years has been one of the fastest-growing counties in the US.
When President Joe Biden defeated former President Donald Trump in the Arizona presidential race last year, he also carried Maricopa by a 50% to 48% margin, which was critical in overcoming the vote margins in some of the more Republican-leaning jurisdictions in the state.
Hobbs, a Democrat, announced her campaign for governor earlier this month and has repeatedly criticized the audit process and questioned the competency of the legislators who continue to challenge the election results.
She contends that most Arizonans view the audit as “a farce.”
“They saw the 2020 election with their own eyes, and they don’t want their ballots scrutinized by a shadowy, partisan company,” she said.
Although Arizona has started to resemble more of a purple state in recent years, Republicans still have a grip on the state legislature, where they have pushed a raft of restrictive voting laws.
The “For the People Act,” also known as H.R.1 or S.1., would end partisan gerrymandering, expand early and absentee voting, and establish national standards for voter registration, among other measures.
In her opinion piece, Hobbs detailed how Arizona Republicans this year modified the Permanent Early Voter List, where mail-in ballots were sent to the homes of voters who signed up for the list, a popular option.
“Some 75 percent of eligible voters relied on the list to receive their mail-in ballots in 2020, and nearly 80 percent decided to vote by mail,” she said.
Last month, GOP Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation that takes people off the list if they choose not to vote by mail in two election cycles. The new rule would apply even for voters who seek to vote through different methods.
Hobbs warned of additional restrictive measures that could come to Arizona.
“Republicans will not stop there,” she said. “Several other bills, each designed to further restrict access to voting, are under consideration in the Arizona legislature.”
In calling for passage of the For the People Act, Hobbs cited its “many long overdue, common-sense ideas that would expand voting rights such as automatic national voter registration.”
She mentioned Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who is opposed to S.1. in its current form but last week laid out a compromise bill, along with her home state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat who supports voting rights legislation but rejects nixing the filibuster to pass it.
“Sinema and I serve the same state,” Hobbs said. “We both know that if we do nothing now, Arizonans’ access to the ballot will be stripped away by Republican legislators.”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York has scheduled a Tuesday vote that would start debate on the bill, despite the likelihood of a GOP-led filibuster.
The voting-rights bill would have to clear the 60-vote threshold to withstand a legislative filibuster and proceed to a vote where it could pass with a simple majority.
“Voter-suppression efforts in Arizona are part of a nationwide dismantling of voting rights — the most sustained and egregious assault on US democracy since the Jim Crow era,” she said.
She concluded the piece with a final plea to Congress, writing “we are running out of time.”
Shouldn’t our elected officials see that the audit is carried out?
What could be more important than solidifying election integrity?
Arizona Senate to Adjourn BEFORE Arizona Audit Results Released – Not Scheduled to Reconvene Until 2022 https://t.co/gVrdBtvqE3

Arizona Senate considering to adjourn until Jan 2022 so election audit results will be postponed? Changes for 2022 election process can not be done then? Is this a McCain proselyte attempt to interfere?

See what happens. I knew they would pull some dirty nonsense.

The Gateway Pundit has more on this developing story:
The Arizona Legislature is preparing to adjourn for the year and go home until January 2022, leaving their post BEFORE the Arizona audit report is produced and legislation can be created.
If the AZ Senate does not delay sine die (the end of session), new election laws will not be created until they meet again next January. If it is found that fraud occurred in Maricopa County, the legislature will not be able to consider withdrawing electors.
AZ State Senator Kelly Townsend tweeted about this after Christina Bobb with OAN reported that “the Arizona Legislature will need to carefully consider withdrawing their electors”
Unless AZ Governor Doug Ducey calls a special session, Legislators will go home until January and no action will be taken.
Senator Kelly Townsend told TGP correspondent Jordan Conradson:
“We normally go home in early May. However, this is not a normal year because we are still in a state of emergency and the audit is still underway. I cannot support going home under these circumstances. We saw last year that it is problematic for the Legislature not to be at the table while dictates are being issued.”
If you want to see action taken on the results of this audit before January, call your legislators in Arizona and demand that they delay sine die!
Now is the time to speak up to your legislators in Arizona and demand that they delay sine die!
We deserve to see the results of the audit and make changes to restore election integrity before 2022.
