On Friday night The Gateway Pundit Jordan Conradson interviewed Arizona Audit Director Ken Bennett on the latest developments in the historic Maricopa County forensic audit.
TGP’s Jordan Conradson: So how are things going so far?
Ken Bennett: Overnight we went from 20 counting locations on the floor to 46! The subcontractor is working with a temporary service to get the additional people that is required for that. Hopefully, in the next day or two, they will be ready to fully staff that. And then if we go to three shifts, which we are talking about, we will almost triple our throughput.
Jordan: So have you guys found any ballots that you believe may be fraudulent?
Ken Bennett: No, we won’t be announcing any of that until the end of the audit. So right now they are just counting the ballots. And they are looking at the paper evaluation to see if there are folds in the ballots that were returned by mail. Are the ovals filled in by a handwritten marking instrument as opposed to a xerox machine that just marked a bunch of ballots. All of the audit results and findings will be part of the final report. We’re not gonna do a little bit every day because we might find good things one day and bad things the next.
Jordan: So I wanted to ask why won’t you release the totals on a daily basis? Wouldn’t that be more informative to the public?
Ken Bennett: Well, apparently the contractor, the senate contract with Cyber Ninjas requires that there not be periodic releasing of findings. And so I think they feel strongly that everything is supposed to be in a final report so that everything is taken as a report as a whole. Could we figure out a way on how to release the numbers of ballots we’ve done each day? That’s not a finding. That’s just a progress report. We’re working on that.
Jordan: What can you say about the latest attempt to shut down this process by three national leftist groups who have petitioned the Biden Department of Justice?…..
