The final week of the Arizona audit continued on Wednesday with two state delegations touring the audit floor. With the adjournment of the Arizona Senate nearing, many fear that necessary legislation and investigations will not take place upon the Senate’s receipt of evidence.
Delegations from Michigan and South Carolina toured the Arizona election audit on Wednesday, in order to bring election integrity to their home states. On Tuesday, a delegation from Washington received a tour, led in part by Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers.

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers has been a strong fighter for the Arizona audit. She famously stood up to Mark Brnovich and scared him away from the Senate led Maricopa County election audit.
Gateway Pundit Jordan Conradson correspondent caught up with State Senator Wendy Rogers, while delegations toured the facility.
Conradson: There’s two states here observing, again. Which states are those again?
Rogers: South Carolina and Michigan.
Conradson: So there’s a lot of concern about Sine Die and the audit results coming out, and the Senate, not being able to make legislation based on those results can you kind of clear up the confusion?
Rogers: Yes. Senate President Karen Fann, my colleague put out a statement last night, which clarifies the fact that even with Sine Die, which is Latin basically for adjourning our legislature, which is a part time legislature, we still will be able to hold hearings and investigate, even in the offseason, as it were, with the Senate Judiciary Committee of which I’m the vice chair. and also it’s important to understand that when the legislature adjourns the 90 day clock starts and then these bills that we have gotten through that we have gotten signed for the restoration of election integrity can take effect. So we want that to be able to go into effect.
Conradson: That’s great. So can you tell us about the legislation such as SB 1485 to clean up our early voting lists, the bill to block early ballots from being counted if they don’t have a signature, and the bill which ensures early ballots go to current addresses?
Rogers: Right. Well, the first bill you mentioned is critical, and we want this to go into effect. Which is basically you have to have voted one time in the last four elections to remain on the voter rolls, and as we are learning with the audit, the voter rolls are critical. And so we want to be able to get them as cleaned up as possible, and it requires legislation to do this. And so these kinds of bills have to be codified into law, and that can only happen after adjournment. And again, rest assured everyone that the Senate Judiciary Committee is a standing committee, and we are able during the offseason to pursue anything that is found in the audit.
Conradson: And then lastly, can you tell us about the important legislation regarding critical race theory, gun rights, etc?
Rogers: So last night, my colleagues and I were on the floor until 2:30 in the morning passing various components of our budget, one of which is the prohibition against teaching critical race theory. Another one was a big huge tax cut for voters here in the state of Arizona. Also, we’re very proud of the fact that there’s a prohibition now, that will be against the vaccine passport with universities and government agencies. So those are just a few of the things that we’re really proud of here in Arizona and we’re going to be doing more.
Wow. Senator Rogers and others were on the floor until 2:30 in the morning fighting for the people of Arizona! The Arizona legislature is in fact a part-time legislature and their salaries reflect this. They are already working very hard for us by staying in session for this long.
We need these bills against the radical left to pass as soon as possible before more damage is done with critical race theory, our taxes are raised, and vaccine mandates can be enforced.
