The Associated Press has characterized the Arizona state Senate’s audit of 2020 presidential election ballots in Maricopa County as an effort prompted by the “fraud fantasies” of Republicans.
The AP said the audit is “ground zero for former President Donald Trump and a legion of his supporters who have refused to accept his loss in Arizona or in other battleground states.”
But libertarian activist and political commentator Wayne Root argued the “over-reaction” by media and Democrats is a sign that they know something was amiss in an election in which Joe Biden’s victory in six battleground states has been contested.
“The fix is in. It’s crystal clear to me now, not only was the election rigged, but so is the post-election. It’s simple psychology,” he said.
“Just look at the absurd reaction, or over-reaction by Democrats. Would anyone dare ban the right to discuss a possible racist police killing? Can you imagine the reaction by liberals, black activists and the ACLU? What if the Minneapolis police permanently banned any discussion of the George Floyd death? What if every black American who tried to give their opinion on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube was banned for life?
