Cindy McCain on Sunday called the ongoing recount of votes in Arizona by a controversial private company “ridiculous.”
“The elections are over. Biden won, ”said McCain, widow of the late Arizona Senator John McCain (right). “I know many of you don’t like the result, but elections have consequences.”
Things are “crazy over there now,” she told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union”.
McCain told Tapper that she was happy to have approved of Biden and that she would be “proud and honored” to serve in his administration. But she would not comment on a report published last month in Politico that she was selected for the appointment as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations World Food Program. McCain said at the moment she was focusing on her “grandchildren”.
Regarding the bizarre recount situation in his state, the Arizona Republican-led State Senate has hired the Cyber Ninjas company – which has no experience with elections or ballots. – to audit the 2.1 million votes cast in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. The company will only check the Senate and Presidency ballots, which were won by the Democrats.
Company owner and operator Doug Logan is a conspiracy theorist and promoter of Trump’s lie that the election was rigged. He retweeted several messages long before the recount began, according to which any audit would find hundreds of thousands of votes for Trump. The company has lost a legal battle to keep its audit process a secret.
One of the men pictured reviewing the ballots in the recount last week was a Capitol rally agitator and former State Representative Anthony Kern, whose name appears on the ballots as candidate (he lost his re-election in a three-way race) and as a voter. for Trump.
Voter advocates and civil rights organizations have called on the Justice Department for federal observers to ensure the ballots are not damaged or stolen.
