Speaking with The Western Journal on Thursday, Arizona State President Karen Fann confirmed that a number of ballots in the 2020 election were indeed printed on the wrong paper, allowing bleed-through which then invalidated those ballots.
During a broadcasted state Senate hearing held on July 15 regarding the Maricopa County presidential election audit, Arizona senators revealed as much.
However, Maricopa County officials then issued a statement from their official Twitter account that merely said “SharpieGate has been debunked already” without addressing the evidence provided at the hearing.
However, it should be noted that Maricopa County officials would be found liable should any of the audit’s findings prove legitimate. Therefore, their arguments cannot necessarily be considered impartial or unbiased.
