Who could’ve predicted that Donald Trump operatives would cause more harm to ballots, which are supposed to be sacred? Only all of us on Earth 1.

Now that Arizona’s 2020 vote tally’s been counted and recounted 700 times we good, right? Arizona GOP did really well statewide so we can move on yes?
LOL of course not.
You guys have probably heard by now that QAnon digital terrorists Cyber Ninjas were unironically hired by Arizona GQP state-senate MAGA cult to come in and screw everything up in Maricopa County.
Here’s what’s really jerking my soda today: WE TOLD YOU THEY WOULD SPOIL BALLOTS AND MAKE A MOCKERY OF DEMOCRACY AND YOU REMAINED SILENT AND LET IT HAPPEN.
- Arizona governor Doug Ducey? SILENT
- Arizona AG Mark Brnovich? SILENT
- GOP members of Maricopa County election board? SILENT*
*Until yesterday, when something snapped within that clueless bloc of semi-functioning adults after being accused of crimes by MAGA cultists.
In other words those Maricopa election republicans watched state-senate counterparts hiring DEM CYBER NINJAS and said nothing until it was too late.
SPARE ME YOUR SANCTIMONIOUS NONSENSE *SIX MONTHS AFTER* Biden legitimately won—and two months after Cyber Ninjas were hired. We told you this would happen, as did Democratic adults across the country and you did NOTHING.
“Anyone running for office in 2022 needs to pick a side,” said Steve Gallardo, lone Democratic member of Arizona’s board of supervisors.
Lay with dogs, get fleas, the end. 😡
The ongoing mess that is the AZ “election audit,” lacking any sense of transparency, conducted by an inexperienced, biased out-of-state firm, contaminating chain-of-custody and the ballots themselves, is not only a bad idea. It also likely violates federal law. /1

As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
