The independent audit authorized by the Arizona State Senate has reached an important milestone in getting accountability and transparency in the 2020 election. It has completed counting the ballots.
“The counting of the ballots is complete and they are being returned to Maricopa County,” Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “Now we wait for the draft and final reports. Ken Bennett will be an important part of those reports.”
Fann is referring to Ken Bennett, the former Arizona Secretary of State and the state senate’s audit liaison. It was recently reported that Bennett intended to resign.
“Ken Bennett, the state senate liaison in charge of overseeing the audit of the Maricopa County 2020 presidential election results, told a radio station that he intends to resign,” ABC 15 reported.
“I cannot be part of a process that I am left out of critical aspects along the way and make the audit legitimate and have integrity when we produce the final report,” Bennett told Conservative Talk Show Host James T. Harris on Monday.
On Wednesday, it was reported that Ken Bennett had stepped down.
