AZ Lawmaker to Biden's AG: Don't Touch AZ Ballots or Machines or You'll Spend Time in AZ Prison
On Friday, Garland delivered a lengthy speech in which he warned that the Department of Justice is gearing up to closely examine any post-audit results, as though those banking on the Arizona audit to overturn the results of the general election needed any more convincing that the establishment does not want said results scrutinized.
In a speech to the staff of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, the attorney general said the department plans to “scrutinize” any “post-election audits, to ensure they abide by federal statutory requirements to protect election records and avoid the intimidation of voters.”
Well, as you can imagine, Arizona GOP lawmakers were rather partial to this thinly-veiled threat on the part of the AG to stick his nose right in the middle of what is very much the business of the state of Arizona and not the federal government.
Arizona State Sen. Wendy Rogers was significantly more direct than the attorney general.
“You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison,” she said bluntly on Twitter in response to a video clip of Garland’s remarks.
Well, Wendy, tell us how you really feel!
Although technically, it would probably be even more difficult for Arizona’s Republican lawmakers to put the U.S. Attorney General in prison for meddling in their election audit than it was for them to make the audit happen in the first place, it certainly is not a good look, at all, for the attorney general serving under the *cough* winner of the 2020 election to threaten federal involvement with the audit.
Here’s the thing: voter confidence was severely damaged after 2020. If the election was indeed carried out with minimal irregularities and abnormalities, as both the Washington DC and mainstream media establishments have insisted, then what’s to lose from proving that it was, indeed, 100 percent legitimate?
As a Trump voter, I was always glad that he never stopped that investigation — and guess what, it turned out that, all along, the Mueller team never did find the silver bullet to take him down.
In the same way, it severely damages the Biden administration’s credibility to threaten to get involved with a state election audit.
Of course, what is most important here is the implications of Garland’s comments on the right of state governments to maintain control over how their own elections are conducted — or audited if need be.
If the federal government oversteps the bounds of federalism to trample on states’ rights, then we simply no longer have a United States, but just one government subject to the whims of whatever power has control in Washington D.C.
Whatever the results of the Arizona election, it is necessary to preserve both our election integrity — and the integrity of our constitutional republic as a whole.
