These people are wacko nutjobs. Full stop. The predetermined outcome of this "audit" will have no meaningful impact on anything, but will give the Trumpers and Qanon groups lots of airtime and a quasi-legitimate basis for their ongoing insanity.

The court has ordered the release of more information, but those orders have repeatedly been ignored. This is illegal as hell. But it's Arizona, the same state where the nutjob governor Ducey (with a 35% approval rating) just signed a law making abortions due to genetic defect a crime. In other words, if you are carrying a fetus with genetic defects you will be forced to carry that child to term (even if there is no chance of survival outside the womb).

The U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday expressed concerns that a controversial audit and recount of the November election in Arizona's Maricopa County may be out of compliance with federal laws.

Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general with the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, wrote in a letter that federal officials see two issues with the election review ordered by the Republican-led state Senate.

One issue is that ballots, voting systems and other election materials are no longer in the custody of election officials — a possible violation of federal law, which requires state and local election workers to store and safeguard federal voting records....

The other issue: Plans for door-to-door canvassing may also violate federal laws aimed at preventing voter intimidation, according to Karlan.

The Senate's contract with Cyber Ninjas states the firms plan to "identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the state address." Auditors also plan to ask voters about their voting history to determine "whether the individual voted in the [November] election."

This is totally bogus, with a predestined outcome, which will also be totally bogus. But it will give new life to the nutjobs.

They are apparently "conducting testing" to look for bamboo residue, proof that the ballots came from China.

I mean seriously?? WTF

I hope they don't try to pull that bamboo malarkey in Florida, where some people I know have bamboo thickets in their yards, another person I know raises bamboo for the nursery market, and the botanical gardens where I used to take the kids has a world-class bamboo collection.

Oh, wait. I hope they do. Evil

Yes, bamboo grows quite readily in Phoenix. It's everywhere at the zoo, for example. I know a lot of folks who have bamboo fences because it grows quickly and makes your yard private.

It's also good for the marauding gangs of undocumented panda bears... Wink

Doesn't bamboo spread rapidly by its roots and become a pest?

Some varieties do. There were houses in the older part of town that had huge thickets of bamboo. One of my kids' schools was in a repurposed older home, so it was well-supplied with bamboo.

There are varieties that don't do that, though. They had some of those varieties at the botanical garden, and you could buy them there. I was always afraid that I'd get an over-enthusiastic clump of it, though, so I never planted any.

I had bamboo at a previous house and it was every bit as aggressive as advertised.

Kind of like giant mint.

The Republican who now leads the Arizona county elections department targeted by a GOP audit of the 2020 election results is slamming former President Donald Trump and others in his party for their continued falsehoods about how the election was run.

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer on Saturday called a Trump statement accusing the county of deleting an elections database “unhinged” and called on other Republicans to stop the unfounded accusations.
...
“Enough with the defamation. Enough with the unfounded allegations,” Richer tweeted Thursday. “I came to this office to competently, fairly, and lawfully administer the duties of the office. Not to be accused by own party of shredding ballots and deleting files for an election I didn’t run. Enough.”

"Fraudit" I like that.
On the bright side it is splitting the Republican party further.
