2020 ELECTION/ARIZONA/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The state Senate-ordered recount of Maricopa County ballots begins Friday in the midst of heated disputes over lack of transparency and a fresh legal challenge.

It was unclear, for example, who actually would be counting the ballots, who beyond Arizona taxpayers was paying for the audit and why news reporters weren’t allowed inside to do their jobs of describing the scene to the public…

Prominent supporters of former President Donald Trump have solicited donations for the audit. Former Trump administration official Christina Bobb has publicly appealed for donations and is also on site as a broadcaster for the right-wing channel One America News Network.”
