Maricopa, May 14 (DP.net).– The forensic investigation on the voting system and procedures taking place in Maricopa County, Arizona, where nearly 2.1 million ballots were deposited or received in the mail, is uncovering a large number of irregularities that could eventually be classified as fraud if at the end of the investigation the electoral and municipal authorities are required to assume their responsibility and answer about their actions to the law. It is those same electoral authorities that continue to impede the investigation, going as far as to deny investigators the passwords they need to properly carry out their work.
To top it off, it has been discovered that the Maricopa County election officials did not have control over the counting of the votes but that responsibility was in the hands of two employees of Dominion Voting Systems. The fact that the County does not have system administrators who have administrative access to the Dominion voting machines is a big concern. By allowing Dominion to have the administration access only, the County has basically turned over the system to the Dominion voting machine system people. Further concern is due to Dominion refusing to abide by the State Senate's subpoena asking for the second password needed for the forensic audit of their machines.
These discoveries are very regrettable because they cast a shadow of doubt on the confidence and legitimacy of the electoral system and, above all, because the bill, misnamed "For the People Act" (H.R.1), contains numerous provisions that would perpetuate those same irregularities that are being discovered in Arizona. In view of the irregularities being discovered in Arizona, New Hampshire, and perhaps other States, are moving to proceed with forensic audits of the past election results. "The Forensic Election Audit Team will begin the Audit on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 10 A.M. Pursuant to New Hampshire Senate Bill 43, the forensic election audit must take place within 45 days of the effective date of April 12, 2021, which is May 27, 2021," New Hampshire officials said in the release.
The open letter signed by around 130 senior officers honorably retired from the armed forces, despite the fact that it has been the object of ridicule, insults and even threats, expresses very clearly in the paragraph copied below their restlessness in facing the truth about the US elections last November 2020:
«Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the “will of the people” our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc. Today, many are calling such commonsense controls “racist” in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the “Rule of Law” must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity. The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020. Finally, H.R.1 & S.1, (if passed), would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic».

The forensic investigation of the votes cast in various states where election results are being questioned would have resolved months ago the tension that has deeply divided the American people. Whether or not sufficient irregularities were discovered to determine the integrity of the past elections, this act of electoral transparency would have put an end to the controversy before the new government took office. However, the numerous obstacles manipulated to prevent this vote recounting have caused enormous unrest in large sectors of the country's population. Therefore, large sectors of the American public question or have concerns regarding the past voting cycle. It is the most controversial and distrusted election in U.S. history. Over 1,000 whistleblowers signed affidavits under penalty of perjury in the days and weeks after the election that they witnessed fraud. Just because a large sector of the press no longer covers this and censors all who do, does not mean that fraud was not witnessed by thousands.
The only way to prove that there was no fraud is to openly proceed with these forensic audits with no further interference from electoral and municipal authorities.
