TGP Contributor Jordan Conradson is live in Phoenix, Arizona
The Sheriff of Maricopa County, Paul Penzone (D), has been in the news lately for going ballistic when the auditors from the 2020 Election in the County asked for access to the County’s routers. TGP contributor Jordan Conradson asked him about this and more today.
We reported last week that the Cyber Ninjas asked for access to the County’s routers so they could identify any curious transmissions recorded on these routers during the 2020 election and counting process. The County refused to comply with this request:
The County claimed that there was personal data that was maintained in these files (which was not true since routers do not record the content of what is being transferred but rather the times and transfer points of data transfers).
We noted in the response to the request from the auditors, the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Paul Penzone, was cc’d in the letter. He is probably better known for the $2 million in support from George Soros in 2016 in the Deep State’s effort to see Sheriff Joe lose for the first time in seven elections. This was reported in Arizona at the time:
When Paul Penzone ran for Maricopa County sheriff in 2016, he famously received a $2 million contribution from billionaire George Soros — the liberal philanthropist’s single biggest investment in a local race that year.
Apparently, when notified of the auditors’ requests, the Sheriff had a meltdown:
Sheriff Paul Penzone (D) said in a statement that providing router information to a shadowy private company led by a conspiracy-embracing CEO would compromise sensitive and highly classified law enforcement data and equipment.
“The Senate Republican Caucus’ audit of the Maricopa County votes from last November’s election has no stopping point,” Penzone said. “Now, its most recent demands jeopardize the entire mission of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.”
It’s difficult to see how the request for router access for review would ‘jeopardize the entire mission of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.” This sounds like an overreaction or the Sheriff’s Department has a mission that he doesn’t want in the open.
This is where Conradson comes in. When he noticed the Sheriff departing the building he decided to ask him a few very good questions.
