Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer Changes His Tune: “I Supported An Audit, I’m Pro-Audit, I’m Pro-Review” – Such BS

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer appeared on Mike Broomhead’s radio show on Wednesday and made some shocking claims.

“I supported an audit, I’m Pro-audit, I’m pro-review, but I’m not pro-Cyber Ninjas…”

When asked about the fraudulent vote count, previously reported by Karen Fann, Sloppy Steve told Broomhead:

“We stand by our count. If the Cyber Ninjas are as good at predicting their timeline for completing the count as they are at counting then that doesn’t bode well for their count…

They are hand-counting, we were machine counting. There’s also a number of other reasons why they might not have come to an accurate count. we produced MORE than just the tabulated ballots. We produced the test ballots, we produced duplicated ballots, we produced spoiled ballots, and I dont know if they understand that those things shouldn’t have been in the tabulation of the actual votes”

Richer then goes on to trash the audit that he apparently ‘supported.’  After, he acknowledges his “abject failure” on his promises to “Make the County Recorder’s Office Boring Again”

He claims to have supported a Senate audit now that he knows the results are coming in hot. He uses the typical leftist excuse of “conspiracy theorist driven” Cyber Ninjas for his reasoning against the audit. BS.

Had Stephen agreed to do a joint audit with the Senate and Cyber Ninjas, as requested, there would be no need for name-calling or new machines.

Then he throws a cheap shot at the audit procedures. He must not understand that the auditors are concerned about accuracy, unlike the County who counted “2,089,563” ballots as quickly as possible. He must have also forgotten that his office is holding the process up by defying subpoenas for the routers and administrative passwords.

Auditors are also using machines to count the total number of ballots. Where are the missing components to the tabulation machines?

Richer then suggests that the reason why the Senate is finding more ballots than certified is that they are including extra ballots in the recount.

There’s one problem, the Senate is actually finding LESS ballots than the certified total.

Ballots are missing.

The audit is currently performing another recount with paper counting machines. The results are going to be biblical.

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers and the Audit War Room shared their thoughts to Twitter.

AuditWarRoom: Sloppy Stephen Richer, who has been attacking the audit for months, just said on KTAR that he is now “pro-audit”! Because the numbers don’t match? Because he knew the voter reg system was hacked? Too little too late. You made your bed. SLOB.

Wendy Rogers: Richer is a piece of work. No one I know biffed at their job faster than Richer.

Richer made a promise to the MAGA posse that he would “Make The County Recorder’s Office Boring Again”. It was even his campaign slogan.

To him, this meant cleaning up the voter rolls, replacing the “incompetent criminal” Adrian Fontes, and securing our elections in an effort to bring nonpartisanship to the County Recorder’s Office. He said he wanted to “rebuild confidence in this process across party lines”.

He constantly highlighted Adrian Fontes’s plans to steal elections through early ballots last March, and emergency voting centers in the 2018 midterm.

Today, the County Recorder’s office is anything but boring with Richer’s face plastered all over the mainstream media as one of the audit’s strongest opponents.

It would be boring if he fulfilled his campaign promises and conducted a joint audit with the Senate.

He is having too much fun with all of this new spotlight.

If Stephen Richer is concerned about clean voter rolls, why does he not want canvassers to knock on doors for voter integrity like he duped MAGA patriots into doing for his campaign? And like Joe Biden’s new vaccine door knockers are starting to do?

From his Ballotpedia page:

Who are you? Tell us about yourself.

I’m committed to running elections that all Arizonans-Republican, Democrat, Independent, or otherwise-can trust. I’m running because the current Recorder has lost the confidence of the electorate as a result of incompetence, incivility, bias, unlawfulness, and a lack of transparency.

Stephen Richer has failed his constituents.

Maricopa County voters will tell Stephen Richer to pound sand next election cycle.
