Senate race do-over?

President Donald Trump on Friday floated the possibility that the race for the U.S. Senate in Arizona might need to be redone because of alleged “electoral corruption.”

The electoral contest between Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally, both current members of the House, is one of the key races around the country that has yet to be called as election officials are still counting thousands of ballots. The fight to fill the seat of retiring Republican Sen. Jeff Flake took a dramatic turn Thursday when state officials announced Sinema had taken a lead over McSally with a razor-thin edge of about 8,000 votes.

Election officials are still counting ballots in crucial counties such as the state’s largest, Maricopa County, where voters are being allowed to resolve discrepancies with their mail-in ballots in cases where the signature on the voter registration doesn’t match that on the return envelopes. Writing online on Friday, Trump suggested the activity might be fraudulent.

“Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH,” Trump wrote aboard Air Force One en route to Paris. “Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!”

Voters have up to five days after Election Day to “cure” their ballots in Maricopa and Pima counties, which combined represent a total of 425,000 uncounted votes. Voters may need to cure ballots if their signatures change or if they can no longer sign as they used to because of a disease or disability. Election administrators are calling the voters with ballot issues to ensure they cast a vote.

Republicans are uneasy about the possibility that a state traditionally seen as a conservative stronghold might be tilting to the left. Four local GOP parties have filed a lawsuit challenging the signature curing process, asking the court either to stop the process or allow the state government to take control of it. A judge was set to hear the case Friday.

Neither candidate vying for the seat has conceded defeat.

Similar election issues and legal challenges have embroiled other crucial, high-profile races, such as the Senate and governor’s race in Florida, and the governor’s race in Georgia.

Trump on Friday also cried foul about the yet-to-be-decided Senate and gubernatorial races in Florida, claiming without evidence that Democrats were engaging in “election theft” to deny Republican Gov. Rick Scott the Senate seat.

  1. That’s because the felon counting elections
    Is at it again. Democrats have no idea what honesty is. May she soon reside in prison. Time to hold these traitors accountable. Good for Rick Scott to sue. Nelson is as corrupt as the day is long. MAGA without the hate and corruption.

  2. The terrible thought is how many illegals actually voted in our elections. How much corrupt activity was going on just to take some power back. It worries me that democrats can do what they want to get what they want no matter what. The saddest thing is when they’re caught they aren’t prosecuted. I e. Hillary Clinton. She put our nation at risk along with thousands if not more people’s lives. Despicable. Recheck the votes on tight races there’s probably something fraudulent going on.

  3. Sometimes I think it would be much easier to just stick these politicians in a ring of fire with gladiator style weapons and watch them fight it out. You cant trust any of them.

      1. Because the Clintons have blackmail just about every Politician in the United States Government, Just like J Edger Hover did when he was in Office, The Clintons just used the same play book. That could be the only reason way they could have survived for this long with out being put under the jail

  4. Florida, where truckloads of additional ballots are being “discovered” is equally bad. Broward County’s ballots should all be disqualified.

    1. Our nationwide voting system is broken. We need a uniform methodology – no vote by mail, no ‘provisional’ ballots, no vote without proof of citizenship, no early voting, everybody votes on the same day. THAT is the last thing Democrats and leftists want but it needs to happen. After voting the thumb goes into a dye to stop voting twice.

      1. Exactly correct, John Strom! After 2016, a task force should’ve been implemented to correct this broken system with NO way to forge or make multiple voting even a possibility. By voter ID (that includes citizenship), fingerprinting, original signature AND retinal scanning, all these formats together in one application, and the voter in front of them would catch ANY forger and swift, strong, legal jail time should be adhered to!

      2. I BELIEVE YOU ARE SO RIGHT AND THAT WOULD BE A BIG HELP TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM…THAT AND LOTS OF PEOPLE WAT CHING WHAT’S GOING ON AT ALL TIMES…..

  5. Dems want Socialism. If by chance they were to get their wish, within 2 years they would be sorry. No jobs, open borders, complete government control. No money. Poor would increase so would crime escalate. People for complete gun control DO NOT UNDERSTAND! criminals will always get guns! Yes Obama started all this.

  6. Jim Says
    It’s sad! What my Country is going through!
    Just because some don’t like the way the vote
    Is going, They yell Corruption!!!
    The have to sue some body!!!
    Those politicians saying there is Corruption
    In the voting, better look in the mirror!!

    1. It’s way deeper than that James. Broward County Florida is a Democrat stronghold led by Debbie Wasserman-Scholz. The same DWS who was the head of the Democrat National Community and personally responsible for rigging the DNC primary election for Bernie Sanders. Yes, DWS was fired by the DNC for this and strangely was re-elected afterwards because her fellow Democrat friend Snipes was the Supervisor or elections for Broward and was caught shredding thousands of votes for Debbies opponent, thus DWS won the re-election. This same election supervisor Snipes is the SAME DISHONEST PERSON who shredded votes and was never prosecuted is the same person who discovered tens of thousands of uncast votes two days after the winners were announced. How convenient. And you don’t see any corruption? Amazing that you put party loyalty ahead of ethics. God’s gonna getcha for that bub.

  7. Pima and Maricopa County officials are just as inept and incompetent as Broward County officials if you follow Arizona Congressional races. This is the fourth race, Congresswoman McSally has been in, where results couldn’t be determined for weeks. Counting votes isn’t rocket science. Or maybe it is in Arizona. What a sad, sad state of affairs. But I guess when the Democrats want someone as incompetent as Sinema, you need time to compile fake ballots!

  8. Who has a cure for ballots infested with signatures that do not match those on the envelopes? Call in the CDC to identify the culprit!

  9. The under cover stings are producing video evidence of fraud. Why are we not seeing arrests? Does the corruption go so high that Washington needs to take the lead in investigations, because the state level is so corrupt?

  10. I am completely disgusted with this topic as a Central Florida resident I agree the newly found votes should be disqualified and the person in charge who has been through fraud like this before should get jail time for her actions .

  11. The article’s key phrase —“without evidence”—comes in the last paragraph, There we learn that President Trump claims that there’s been cheating. But he has no EVIDENCE. It’s just whining, just blowing smoke. We should expect more from a President.

    1. Give me a break… that’s why he got in as potus, because we the people gave them what they are.. but they (congress) don’t nor can’t deal with someone better at their shrewd game of deceit and not representing the American public for the better. He’s serving US instead of those on the Hill serving themselves.

    2. There is an enormous evidence of fraud. This woman was convicted by a judge of destroying ballots that were by law to be preserved. Constant irregularities. If this wan in a Republican county, and they were doing the same thing, you would be screaming bloody murder.

    3. IF IT LOOKS LIKE A DUCK, QUACKS LIKE A DUCK, IT IS A F**KING DUCK!!!!
      THIS VOTING FRAUD GOES ON EVERY ELECTION IN THESE SAME COUNTIES. THIS HAS GOT TO BE CHANGED!!!! I DON’T CARE WHAT THE OUTCOME IS IN AN ELECTION AS LONG AS IT IS DONE CORRECTLY. THIS ELECTION HAS NOT, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT DON’T ADD UP.

    4. It isn’t the President’s fault, put the blame where it really belongs on the incompetent people that worked those polls for those counties, the President isn’t whining he is just repeating the information he is getting from officials of what is happening and apparently no one has answers as to why this corruption is taking place, this has happened so many times before in elections and it always points to the Democrats, they said they would do what ever it takes to win and most people knowing the corrupt history of the Democrats know damn well the Democrats had something to do with this. Now the Clintons bring in their lawyers, right there smells fishy! The Clintons have caused enough trouble for this country along with many Democrats, they all need to be exposed and soon, they are sore losers who will stop at nothing to get what they want even if it means cheating and lying and from the reports we have hearing there were Democrat poll tenders that worked those polls so what does that tell you!

  12. If the signatures don’t match. then throw the ballot out. I live in AZ and my ballot comes threw the mail. My mail box is in a bank of mail boxes. Quite often I get somebody elses mail. I think they out to do away with mail in ballots. If somebody needed a ride to vote, I would be glad to drive them. (republican, Democrat, Independent.)

  13. Why is it always the Democrats that seem to have issues complying with any rule? Why do we have to allow early voting , mail in voting, or for that matter why should we not require ID? They cry hardship, it should be hard, or at least require some effort. For crying out loud your voting, your voice matters, get your head out of your ass!!! If you can’t make the effort than your voice should not matter,and I don’t care about your opinion.

  14. Does 110 % ring a bell the libs have been at this for over fifty years. They don’t want any form of voter ID.
    We have voter ID, it don’t hurt my pride any! Why can’t the rest of the country?

  15. What idiot wrote there’s no EVIDENCE of cheating by Democrats, the women admitted she did it, as an attorney I count that as evidence, and the sudden appearance of additional ballots for a Democrat running and losing is a well know established FACT. The idiot needs to stop whining and trying to blow smoke. That old dog want hunt anymore, American’s have Democrats cheating for years, just look for the little old black lady at the end of the table. Facts and Evidence in any court weigh about the same my whining friend.

  16. ID cords with pictures, no mail in voting, no illegals voting, have a two day voting process including a Saturday.
    You need ID cards for EVERYTHING
    No more illegals coming into the US. Stop the use of any language except English. Even TV commercials are using Spanish. Let’s make America America agaim

  17. Election fraud should be punished with a rope. The good things about a rope are that it is recyclable, it is inexpensive, it works for male or female, white – black – red – brown – yellow – or mixed. and it is public.

  18. Lets just do all the votes over again . The whole system is corrupt from the Washington lawmakers on down. The electoral college needs to go away, the people in power or there for the money and lifetime benefits we allow them to partake of. If the swamp is to be drained Washington is where it needs to start. Term limits minimum wage for lawmakers then see how many would take these jobs. Everyone needs to read up on the benefits these people get when they leave office and healthcare they dont even have to worry about that do some research if it dont upset you it should. In the 1960 era Kruschev said the Russians would take the USA without firing a shot that we would destroy ourselves from within. Look around looks like its getting a foot hold. I for one will defend this country as long as I am alive. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  19. It just seems odd that when voting doesn’t go the way Liberals plan that “other” ballots APPEAR and seem to favor the Liberal.If you need a photo ID to board an airplane, get a driver’s license, buy cigarettes or alcohol- so should you to vote! It seems only the Liberals are afraid of that venue! I wonder why?

  20. I am a voter and Poll Watcher for the GOP in Florida. I live in Broward County. I filed an 8 page report of all the Election Day voter irregularities while Poll Watching. The easiest solution is to just throw out Broward and Palm Beach votes and see what is left. Further, when Brenda Snipes was found guilty of multiple Felonies going back to the 2016 election and beyond, she should have been sentenced for her criminal activity, and removed from her position as Supervisot of Elections

  21. We need to have any district or county with previous problems/issues watched during elections to see what the heck is going on. That witch in Broward County, Florida should have been removed and charged with voter fraud. The real DOJ should step in and corral the blood sucking Democrat lawyers that showed up saying they were there to win the election for the Dems.

  22. John Strom a Facebook friend and fellow musician echoes my thoughts, no more mail in voting. People must go to the polls, show.proof of citizenship with the exception of the military that are away from home. If they will be out of their District then they could apply to vote at a temporary location.

  23. John Strom a Facebook friend and fellow musician echoes my thoughts. No more early or mail-in voting. People must go to the polls, show proof of citizenship with the exception of the military that are away from home. If they will be out of their District then they could apply to vote at a temporary location. Polling places can extend voting from one day to three so everyone can get there.

  24. When are we going to ever have CLEAN voting results in this nation???If there is any indication that the results were tampered with in any state,those results should be voided and a new set of ballots should be reestablished and counted.

  25. With all the issues we needed to responsibly vote on, I feared the voter/electoral fraud would remain the #1 issue. Unless the entire system is repaired – voter/citizenship photo ID’s – even if we win, we’ll lose.

  26. Why is it always Dems that do the cheating? Look up infamous box 13 in Duval County,TX that got Landslide Lyndon a win in his first political race.

  27. When it is irrevocably proven that non eligible voters are on the rolls and listed as voted.
    When they refuse to follow federal election laws concerning impartial observation of the count.
    When they keep “FINDING” more ballots to count when the democrats are behind.

    There is OBVIOUS fraud the fact LIBERALS continue to ignore this doe not mean there is NO EVIDENCE it means they IGNORE the evidence because the fraud benefits them.

    They even complain that making certain the person voting IS the registered voter not someone voting under a fake name or stealing some other persons vote somehow SELECTIVELY discriminates against a specific race does not suddenly abolish the evidence that there was fraud.

    Numerous people have reported seeing their DEAD RELATIVES on the rolls listed as DEMOCRATS when they were never democrats while they were alive and DEAD people are supposed to be removed from the registry not have their party changed and continue to have votes cast in their name.

  28. Maybe it was an unfortunate oversight by the drafters of the Constitution, but they made NO provision for “do overs” on federal elections. None. No way to do it. Fraud is a different kettle of fish, so to speak: it CAN be handled if the local election board is willing to take the necessary steps. The FIRST step is to stop whimpering about the possibility that someone might lose his/her vote because he/she filled out the ballot wrong. If someone is TOO STUPID to figure out how to fill in an election ballot, they don’t DESERVE to have their vote counted!

  29. These races should be redone for the purpose of conducting a fair election . These polling places should have monitors placed at every poling sight ! and if any illegal comes to vote they should be arrested and deported !

  30. It’s way deeper than that James. Broward County Florida is a Democrat stronghold led by Debbie Wasserman-Scholz. The same DWS who was the head of the Democrat National Community and personally responsible for rigging the DNC primary election for Bernie Sanders. Yes, DWS was fired by the DNC for this and strangely was re-elected afterwards because her fellow Democrat friend Snipes was the Supervisor or elections for Broward and was caught shredding thousands of votes for Debbies opponent, thus DWS won the re-election. This same election supervisor Snipes is the SAME DISHONEST PERSON who shredded votes and was never prosecuted is the same person who discovered tens of thousands of uncast votes two days after the winners were announced. How convenient. And you don’t see any corruption? Amazing that you put party loyalty ahead of ethics. God’s gonna getcha for that bub.
