Politico Brutally Fact-Checks Trump’s AZ “Fraudit” Lies

Politico reports:

TRUMP: “168,000 fraudulent ballots printed on illegal paper (unofficial ballots)” THE FACTS: All of that is false. The ballots were not unofficial or printed on illegal paper, and even [Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug] Logan never alleged they were fraudulent.

TRUMP, citing “74,000 mail in ballots received that were never mailed (magically appearing ballots).” THE FACTS: No, there were no magically appearing ballots. He is alleging that the number of filled-out ballots received in the mail by election officials exceeded the number of people who had asked earlier for mail-in ballots, by 74,000. But that’s not at all what happened.

TRUMP, claiming “11,000 voters were added to the voter rolls AFTER the election and still voted.” THE FACTS: There’s nothing untoward about voters rolls growing after Election Day. The rolls are simply updated to reflect people whose provisional ballots are added to the tally after election officials verify that they were eligible to vote.

TRUMP, alleging “all the access logs to the machines were wiped, and the election server was hacked during the election.” THE FACTS: That flies in the face of the evidence. Maricopa County’s election server is not connected to the internet and independent auditors found no evidence the election server was hacked.
