Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is troubled by a new article that claims all Republican gubernatorial candidates in the Grand Canyon State have not acknowledged that Joe Biden won Arizona in the 2020 election.
On Tuesday, Hobbs — who is running as a Democrat in Arizona’s governor race — tweeted the following quote from an opinion piece written by AZ Central’s Laurie Roberts: “Of the five Republicans running for governor, not even one of them will acknowledge that Joe Biden won Arizona last year.”

In response, Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted, “Does someone want to tell her?” along with the hashtags: #RecallTheElectors, #DecertifyNow, #ArrestThem.

Since initial findings of the Maricopa County full forensic audit were made public during a Senate hearing, Sen. Rogers has been pushing for Arizona’s election results that show Joe Biden winning the state to be decertified, and is now calling on other states to conduct audits of their own.
Some of the initial suspicious discoveries that were revealed by Arizona auditors are as follows:
* Thousands of duplicated ballots did not have a serial number as required by state statute. Without those serial numbers it is ‘impossible’ to match the original ballot to the duplicate.
* Forensic data expert Bob Cotton stated that the Maricopa election system has not been updated with security updates since August of 2019, which is when the Dominion software was originally loaded on voting machines. Cotton also revealed that the administrator passwords to the election management system (EMS) were identical in all of the machines and were not updated since August of 2019.
* According to written records, there were about 74,000 mail-in ballots that were received by the county but there is no record that they were ever sent out.
* Records also indicate there were roughly 4,000 people who voted on election day but were not registered until after the October 15th deadline, while 18,000 people were shown to have voted on election day but then purged from the county’s voter rolls right after the election.
