The midterm elections were over half a year ago. Yet, there are still unresolved issues with some of them, namely, the Arizona election that Republican candidate Kari Lake believes was rigged to keep her from winning.
Lake’s attorney, Kurt Olsen, explained a review of the data from Maricopa County displayed over 300k mail-in ballots not being verified; whereas Lake’s opponent, Katie Hobbs, won by a mere 17k votes.
334K Ballots Reviewed Improperly, According to Kari Lake’s Attorney
This amounts to 0.7% of all the votes.
Over 2.5 million ballots were cast in the entire state. With the legitimacy of tens of thousands of Hobbs’ ballots being up for question, Lake could’ve easily won the election.
This wouldn't have been necessary if Maricopa hadn't disenfranchised Arizonans.
It wouldn't have been necessary if they'd followed the law.
It wouldn't have been necessary if @katiehobbs hadn't run her own election.

In fact, the data log for Maricopa County shows more than 264k ballots were reviewed at a rate of three seconds per ballot, with another 70k being reviewed for under two seconds, which is far from long enough to warrant their legitimacy.
Olsen continued his relentless attack, explaining there were even testimonies from reviewers who claimed to have become so overwhelmed they were unable to look at all the signatures being piled on their desks.
Because of this, a lot of the work fell onto the level 1 reviewers instead. This gave the ballots another look, albeit, not long enough to justify there being tens of thousands of votes up for debate.
🚨298,000 ballots in 36 hours?🚨
Whistleblower: "We really didn't start to see any of the election night data until Wednesday afternoon. And then by Friday, it was done. All 298,000. We were done with them is what we were told.
Which made no sense if we could only do 60,000 or… pic.twitter.com/Vu47GDNxXB

Inhuman reaction speeds at Maricopa signature review
What’s strange is the fact that such a simple process employed by Maricopa County failed to hold up millions of ballots.
Any ballot rejected by a level 1 reviewer would then be redirected to the level 2 reviewers, who then decide whether the signatures on the ballot match and whether they’re going to be forwarded to the counting department.
In the case that signatures didn’t match, the reviewers would call the voter to confirm their identity.
No human on the planet can take less than three seconds to verify the legitimacy of a signature. This is even more true when we’re talking about thousands of pieces of paper, not just a couple dozen.

Finally, Olsen closed his statement before the court by claiming Maricopa County was in on what was happening the entire time and each of the workers was monitored and instructed on what to do.
One of the 11 reviewers even submitted 170k signatures, allegedly at a rate between one and three seconds per signature. The approval rate was 99.97%, which is statistically impossible for such a large sample size.
Flashing a signature on the screen and clearing it for counting isn’t reviewing. It’s just clicking a button very fast.
