Twitter boss Elon Musk has responded to the bombshell data that exposes major irregularities in Arizona’s Maricopa County.
Explosive new data from Maricopa County reveals that 15 times more 2022 midterm ballots were rejected on Election Day than those that were mailed in.
As regular Slay News readers will likely be aware, Republican voters prefer to vote in person on Election Day while mail-in ballots are mostly used by Democrats.
As Arizona’s GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake pointed out, Maricopa County has also been unable to provide a chain of custody for a large number of ballots.
That number of ballots is twice the margin of victory of Lake’s Democrat opponent.
On Monday, the Republican Nominee for Arizona Attorney General Abe Hamadeh shared the stunning numbers on Twitter.
FYI: Your ballot was 15x more likely to be rejected if you voted on Election Day in Maricopa County.
Mail-In Rejected: 1,825
Mail-In Accepted: 1,311,734
Percent rejected = .13%
Election Day Rejected: 4,849
Election Day Accepted: 248,070
Percent rejected = 2%

In response to the severe ballot irregularities exposed in the data, Musk commented Tuesday that the anomalies are “strange.”

Musk’s comments on the post massively amplified Hamadeh’s tweet.
Hamadeh followed up with more information on the “strange” irregularities from Maricopa County as the initial post went viral.
Also strange that 30% of printers go down on Election Day after working fine for the primary.
Also strange Maricopa County refused to extend voting hours.
Also strange Maricopa County withheld the provisional ballots from us prior to trial.
Cover-ups are strange. https://t.co/P189dcKWXq

Due to the widespread issues and irregularities during her election, Lake refused to concede the race to Democrat Katie Hobbs.
Hobbs, who oversaw Arizona’s election in her role as Secretary of State, refused to campaign or even debate Lake during the race.
She also refused to recuse herself as the state’s top election official.
Lake has since assembled a legal team to challenge the results of the election.
However, the election results were certified with Hobbs winning by over 17,000 votes.
Lake alleged voter disfranchisement due to ballot printing problems and long waiting lines in Maricopa County and even called for the arrest of election officials.
It gets worse.
Maricopa County cannot provide a chain of custody for a number of ballots that is TWICE my opponents margin of victory.

Later on Tuesday, the Chair of the Center for Election Integrity at the America First Policy Institute Ken Blackwell issued a statement on the findings.
Blackwell commented on Maricopa County’s recent report on their performance in the 2022 midterm election.
He noted that Maricopa County election officials blamed printers for the issues that occurred on Election Day and stated that all legal ballots were counted and included in the official results.
However, Blackwell’s statement indicates that not all legal ballots were counted and included in the official results.
There is testimonial evidence of people who did not have their votes counted.
Additionally, the legal case brought by Hamadeh reveals that then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs knew that the recount showed discrepancies and failed to disclose those relevant facts to the court in a timely manner before the court made its ruling.
According to Blackwell, this failure to do so is either gross incompetence or a cover-up.
Former Ohio Secretary of State, and current Chair of the Center of Election integrity at @A1Policy, @kenblackwell just released a statement about Maricopa County's disastrous 2022 Midterm Election & their sham attempt at an internal "investigation."

The irregularities in Maricopa County’s ballot counting have raised concerns about the integrity of the election process.
The county is Arizona’s most populous and has been at the center of election controversies in recent years.
In 2020, the county’s election results were heavily scrutinized by President Donald Trump and his supporters, who alleged that widespread voter fraud had occurred.
As Slay News previously reported, an expert witness gave an explosive testimony before the Arizona Joint Elections Committee in February, alleging widespread corruption in the upper echelons of the state’s government.
The Arizona Senate and House Elections Committees heard testimony and presentations from multiple individuals regarding election anomalies.
Expert witnesses were called to present evidence of potential fraud in Arizona’s elections.
Forensic financial investigator Jacqueline Breger blew the lid off the hearing when she made bombshell allegations that Hobbs and several other top Arizona officials have been working with Mexico’s deadly Sinaloa Cartel for years.
Breger detailed her findings during the hearing that suggest Hobbs has been working with the dangerous Mexican cartel to launder money, keep the border open for drug smuggling and human trafficking, and rig elections to keep cartel-friendly officials in power.
