(Republican Insider) – On Wednesday of this week, a delegation from the state of Pennsylvania was sent into the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Arizona where they received an on-the-scene tour of the current audit that is being conducted in Maricopa County.
According to a report from The Gateway Pundit, the team consisted of State Sen. Doug Mastriano, State Sen. Cris Dush, and State Rep. Rob Kauffman, along with members of their staff. The group then received a briefing from legislators in Arizona in the morning. After that, the group took a tour of the entire facility.
One of GP’s reporters, Jordan Conradson, had an opportunity to chit-chat with PA State Sen. Doug Mastriano and get his thoughts and opinions on the historic Arizona election audit.
“Can you give me a quick step-by-step of what you and other legislators from Pennsylvania did today?” Conradson asked.
“Myself, Sen. Cris Dush, and Rep. Rob Kauffman met with our counterparts in The House and Senate today. They gave us the legislative perspective on this audit: why they’re doing it and how they got here. Then after that, we got a tour of the audit and they went through the process of how they protect people’s privacy, how they ensure chain of custody and how this is a free and transparent process. I gotta tell you: I’m Impressed. This is a model for any audit in any nation or the world,” Mastriano said.
Conradson asked Mastriano to elaborate on his thoughts about the process.
“My impression of this right here is, this is the way you do it. They’re looking at the type of paper that’s being used, they’re looking at whether circles were filled in by a machine or by hand. This is the level of technology that we should have. The takeaway for Pennsylvania and the rest of the nation is that our elections need to be secure. People should be able to walk into the ballot box thinking “my vote counted, my voice was heard”. If we got nothing to hide, Let’s do this,” the state senator replied.
He was then asked if the process was secure.
“This process is VERY secure…” he responded.
“Do you plan to replicate this process in Pennsylvania?” Conradson asked.
“Yeah, if we do an audit in Pennsylvania. We need to do an audit and this is the model. I don’t know why in 2021, this is not more commonplace, where if people have issues they can have their answers. It’s about finding out who won, who got the most votes and that’s it. Additionally in the military, we got what’s called after-action review. We conducted an election, what went right, what went wrong, and what are we going to do to fix it?” Mastriano answered.
When asked what he had to say to mainstream media and Democratic claims that this is just a “fraudit,” Mastriano said, “I am just stupefied by the lack of intellectual curiosity being exercised by the media and the left. They should be the first to do an investigative approach to an election…”
And Pennsylvania isn’t the only folks who are set to take a tour of the audit facilities in Arizona. A few Georgia Republican leaders, including Burt Jones, are going to be taking a tour next week.
Steve Bannon recently announced this tour from Georgia on his War Room program on Thursday, noting that Georgia Sen. Burt Jones will be leading the delegation to examine the Arizona audit.
