Former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon, who is running in the Republican primary for Arizona governor, explains why the Maricopa County election audit was so significant.
“We learned from the audit Friday that the system was connected to the Internet… and we also learned that the county failed to take some of the most basic cybersecurity precautions… In fact, the secretary of state, who’s our chief elections officer, they didn’t even adhere to the most basic cybersecurity requirements. They used the same password for all accounts… and they would let people anonymously attach to the Internet from remote locations. So it’s clear that this election was very very compromised…. As a result of that, I’m calling on the chief election officer of the state, Katie Hobbs, to step down.”
