Three Arizona Republicans testified before the House Oversight Committee on Thursday, October 7:
- Jack Sellers, Maricopa Board of Supervisors Chairman
- Bill Gates, Maricopa Board of Supervisors Vice Chair
- Ken Bennett, Senate Audit Liaison, Former Secretary of State, Arizona
Jack Sellers testified that “the election of Nov. 3rd, 2020, in Maricopa County was “free, fair, and accurate.” He also said during his witness statement that the Cyber Ninjas audit was a product of “willful misinformation designed to put money in political coffers and spread fear amongst our fellow Americans.”
Bill Gates gave this statement: “As a Republican who believes in democracy, I dreamed of one day going to a nation that was trying to build a democracy and help them out. Perhaps a former Soviet republic like Belarus or Tajikistan. I never could have imagined that I would be doing that work here in the United States of America.” Also, “This willingness to actively promote or quietly appease those peddling claims of election fraud resulted in the first non-peaceful transfer of power in our history.”
Ken Bennett offered this: “The most significant finding of the audit is that the hand count of the physical ballots very closely matches the County’s official results in the President and US Senate races. That finding is frustrating to many who expected the audit to prove a different election result.” “[The audit] is about verifying that Arizona laws and election procedures were followed, and […] to that end, we did find several areas where election laws and procedures were or may have been violated.”
Doug Logan of Cyber Ninjas was also asked to appear and submit documents to the committee, but declined.
