Senate Republicans spent months demanding Maricopa County's 2.1 milion ballots, now they don't know what to do with them. Train wreck, dead ahead.
The quick story:
The completely insane Arizona GOP senate issued a subpoena to get every ballot from Maricopa County, all 2.1 million of them. Now they're like the dog who has finally caught the car, and has no idea what to do with it. Exactly as their subpoena demanded, 73 pallets of ballots were unloaded at the senate building. The Republicans hadn't even set aside a place to put them.
Needless to say, the Republicans will completely botch the chain of custody, making everything they do pointless. They'll also do all of their "auditing" in total secrecy, after months of lies and whining about observers. Yeah, that inspires confidence. I don't think the county will even want the votes back. Since the chain of custody is destroyed, they're worthless paper now. And there will probably only be 1.8 million left, after the Republican get their paper shredders going.
