Election integrity – like oil and gas jobs for Americans – should have bipartisan support.

In Maricopa County, Arizona, the election auditors reported this week on Twitter that an entire directory full of databases from the 2020 election had been deleted. Ken Bennett, audit liaison, said, “It may not be missing. Maybe it’s been deleted because it was duplicated somewhere else.” Two words stick out here: “been” and “deleted”.

Former President Donald J. Trump issued the following statement:

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer tweeted that he was “literally looking at our voter registration database on my other screen. Right now.” Richer called the former president’s claims “unhinged”.

We have questions. You have them, too. Was President Trump right again?

If the County Recorder is “literally looking” at those databases on his computer, why don’t the auditors have them? Why are they possibly “missing”? Why would the audit liaison say, “Maybe it’s been deleted because…”?

Whatever the answers, we should all demand that our elections are actually “free and fair”. To hear Democrats and some Republicans talk about it being six months since the November election is funny. After all, it’s not as long as a 3-year “Russian collusion” hoax investigation at the end of which Representative Adam Schiff never did produce all that “evidence” he kept saying he had.

Does it matter to our oil and gas jobs? YES. It all matters.
