Trump alleges election fraud in Arizona

RT | November 12, 2022

Former US President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that Republican candidate Blake Masters lost his bid for the Senate due to “voter fraud” in Arizona. Masters was preliminarily declared to have lost to Democrat Mark Kelly on Friday, after an election marred by malfunctioning machines and slow counting of votes.

“They’re at it again,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. “Voting machines in large numbers didn’t work, but only in Republican districts. People were forced to wait in line for hours, then got exhausted… and left the voting lines by the thousands.

“This is a scam and voter fraud, no different from stuffing the ballot boxes,” he continued, referencing his own allegations that pro-Democrat poll workers engaged in ballot harvesting to deliver Arizona to President Joe Biden in 2020.

“They stole the election from Blake Masters,” he concluded, demanding that officials in the state “do election over again!”

Kelly was declared the winner by multiple US media outlets on Friday night, with the Democrat incumbent leading Masters by 52% to 46%. Masters has not conceded, however, and 13% of the vote remains to be counted. Should Kelly prevail or Masters accept defeat, control of the US Senate will hinge on Nevada, where Republican Adam Laxalt is leading by less than a percentage point; and Georgia, where a runoff election is set for next month. Republicans need both seats to gain a majority in the upper chamber.

Maricopa County is the largest and most populous county in Arizona, encompassing the cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe. Republicans began sounding the alarm when one in five voting machines in more than 200 polling stations throughout the county broke down on Tuesday. With long queues forming, Masters and a number of other Republican candidates filed an emergency suit to extend voting hours, which was rejected.

Republican suspicions of fraud were heightened when the counting of ballots slowed to a trickle after election day. Although officials in Maricopa County say that tabulating these ballots can take a week or longer, the state of Florida manages to count almost all of its ballots in a single night, despite having four times the population of Maricopa County.

  1. Trump is Trump is…one who trumps all, in so many odious (my fave: “pussy-grabbing”) ways. I will make this personal point: if Trump could grow up and out of his “bullying boyhood” persona, he has demonstrated that he can conjure up some practical ideas that just might seep into the consciousness and mindset and activities of belligerent, warmongering Amerika….

  2. In America, voting changes nothing. The Deep State continue to control everything, and those in positions of high power, remain in place, directing outcomes that favour them, over the People.
    There seems to be “vote manipulation ” at the ballot box every election as well.
    Let’s be honest, voting in America is NOT compulsory, so it is not difficult to “find, late votes” which swing the election result to suit the ‘Riggers’, and voting machines are VERY DODGY.

    “Freedom and Democracy” in the USA, looks like a “Hollywood” show.

  3. Only Arizona? Give me a break! Election fraud is taking place on a monumental scale and everyone knows it. Why isn’t anyone doing anything about it?

    • I, myself, have been disenfrachised. I must wait another week before they propose to close counting.

      Hand counting paper ballots can be done in hours.

      • I’m astonished that the “Average American” simply accepts what happens at every election. I can’t remember an American election where there wasn’t a strong suspicion about its veracity….and of course, was Joe Biden the best option at the last election? Was there no other impressive option?
        Or was he just another, “Useful Idiot”……
