Is the Arizona election audit pointless?


Daily Pundit (SteveF)You’ve no doubt seen news of the ballot recount in Arizona. Republicans (not Nevertrump RINOs) pushed for the audit, raised money, and jumped through all the hoops needed to get the order. Democrats, the establishment, and Nevertrumpers (some category overlap) objected and made noises about records being destroyed before the audit but they didn’t put their money where their mouths were.

Does anyone over the age of six think that Biden will be thrown out and Trump reinstalled as the legitimate President? Does anyone think the Supreme Court will take up the challenges? Does anyone think that anyone above the level of flunky will be hauled before a judge, let alone see the inside of a jail cell?

I don't disagree with the above. Election audits, at this point, will not result in Biden being removed from office. There's a process, flawed and time-limited as it was, and that process put Biden in office. That doesn't, however, mean the election audits are pointless.

Conducting the audits -- if done properly, and if the results do expose massive fraud as many suspect -- will go a long ways towards securing future elections. It will create significant public momentum towards updating election laws and performing audits in other questionable states. It will expose not only that fraud happened, but HOW the fraud happened, informing us of what exactly needs to be secured. And it will do so with the kind of evidence needed to get cowardly legislators to act. If they do not, it will provide powerful arguments in future elections for replacing them with others who will.

At this point, removing Biden from office over election fraud would take impeachment, and that's not going to happen. But removing Democrats from power will require either honest elections or extreme measures. Audits are the pathway to doing so with honest elections.
