AZ State Representative-Elect Austin Smith In Victory Speech: “What Happened In Maricopa County Is CRIMINAL” – “Get Rid Of These STUPID Dominion Voting Machines”

The voting on election day was a complete disaster across the country and especially in Arizona, where Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs is Secretary of State.

Arizona State Representative-elect Austin Smith went off last night in his victory speech, declaring, “what happened today in Maricopa County is criminal. The next state legislature not only has a duty but an obligation to fix the problems that have happened in Maricopa County.”

The Gateway Pundit reported on the debacle yesterday in Maricopa County, where Republican voters in Republican districts were running into serious election integrity problems.

Tabulators were down, printers were running out of ink, voting machines were down, and long, long lines kept voters waiting to cast their ballots.

Voters waited several hours in several Republican districts due to Katie Hobbs’ incompetence and malfeasance.

This is criminal!


They knew that Trump-Endorsed Republicans were surging in the polls and taking the lead in the last round.

They also knew we would have a historic turnout on election day, and they were ready for it.

This is why Katie Hobbs did not recuse herself from election oversight despite bi-partisan calls to do so. She wanted to work with the corrupt Maricopa County officials to rig another election.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that RINO Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates said the election of Trump-Endorsed primary candidates was a “catastrophe” and suggested the GOP needed to lose the General Election.

Similarly, his colleague Maricopa County Supervisor Stephen Richer illegally used his nonpartisan office to campaign against a ballot initiative that would create stronger voter ID requirements for voters.

These are the people who ran the Maricopa County election

Yesterday, Gates and Richer confirmed that about 20% of the vote centers were experiencing serious issues that disenfranchised Republican voters.

It was also reported that the ballot printers were seeing “ongoing issues,” which also caused tabulators to not work.

Smith shredded Maricopa County in his victory speech, calling for election integrity and banning Dominion in the next legislative session. He then called on Stephen Richer to resign from office over the Maricopa County debacle and his opposition to voter ID.

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward also called on Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer to resign from office over this debacle yesterday morning on Bannon’s War Room.

Watch below:

Smith: What happened today in Maricopa County is criminal. The next state legislature not only has a duty but an obligation to fix the problems that have happened in Maricopa County. We are going to have an entirely new legislature in the State Senate and in the State House. Each one of you is going to be responsible for making sure that your state legislators follow the law, get rid of these stupid Dominion Voting Machines. We need to have signature verification for mail-in ballots, a lot tighter than that. We have to have voter ID. If you’re Stephen richer right now, you need to resign and get away from elections in Maricopa County. Stephen Richer has to resign. It’s going to be a long night. We had these problems today in Maricopa County. Thankfully, we had rural counties that showed up and did numbers for us, but each one of you, in the days that follow tonight, Tuesday, pay attention to the Secretary of State’s office. Pay attention to the Recorder’s office. Pay attention to your precincts. Each one of you has an obligation each and every single day to make sure that every legal vote is counted. Making sure that every precinct is completely counted and making sure that every person that has voted, that person knows that their vote counted, knows that they went to the polls and their vote was counted on election day. Every single one of you here has that obligation. I know we’re getting kind of crazy, and we’re all kind of, you know, walking around a little bit, but pay attention. It’s going to be quite a long night. Get something to eat, talk to your friends, pay attention to the news. How many of you are going to be excited to elect Kari Lake to be the next governor of Arizona? The one thing I’m going to ask you guys tonight is to make sure when you go home, you become a precinct committeeman. How many of you out here are precinct committeemen? If you don’t know what a precinct committeeman is, it’s the official representation of the Republican Party in your neighborhood. Why is that important? Everywhere you vote, every person that you elect to represent you in Congress, Governor, President, the State Legislature, they answer to the precinct committeemen. You are the official representation of the Republican Party in your neighborhood. Everybody here in February of 2023, you need to be an appointed precinct committeemen. Go to Fill out the form there. We want you to be a precinct committeeman. If you care about election integrity, you need to be a precinct committeeman. If you care about securing the border, you need to be a precinct committeeman. If you guys care about making sure that Adrian Fontes never touches elections in Arizona again, you got to be a precinct committeeman.
