Although the majority of members on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors are Republican, they have been fighting the Arizona state Senate’s forensic audit of the November election from the get-go. Last week, the board refused to turn over routers the Senate had subpoenaed and claimed not to have the “passwords to access administrative control functions of election machines,” according to the Epoch Times.

The Maricopa County audit team discovered on Wednesday that “a directory full of election databases from the 2020 election cycle” had been deleted days before county election officials were scheduled to hand over the election equipment for forensic review.

The team broke the news on social media, saying that this was a “spoliation of evidence.” A screenshot provided by the Maricopa audit Twitter page shows that all of the data had been “modified” on April 12.

After the team discovered that the database had been deleted, Karen Fann, the president of the Arizona state Senate, sent a letter to the chairman of the Maricopa Board of Supervisors, Jack Sellers, demanding some answers.

“We have recently discovered that the entire ‘Database’ directory from the D drive of the machine ‘EMSPrimary’ has been deleted,” she began. “This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena. In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, ‘Results Tally and Reporting,’ is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database.

“This suggests that the main database for all election related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed,” Fann wrote. “Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?”

“To date, attorneys for Maricopa County [Board of Supervisors] have refused to produce virtual images of routers used in connection with the general election, relying on a conclusory and unsupported assertion that providing the routers would somehow ‘endanger the lives of law enforcement officers, their operations, or the protected health information and personal data of Maricopa County’s citizens,'” Fann said.
