Later this week, we expect to finally get the results of the so-called audit that Senate Republicans have been conducting of the 2020 election in Maricopa County for months.

Senate President Karen Fann announced she will release initial findings of the report from the firm Cyber Ninjas on Sept. 24.

Last week, Maricopa County and the Arizona Senate came to an agreement over handing over routers for the so-called audit to a third party — former Arizona Congressman John Shadegg.

The Senate has claimed it cannot complete its process, which is approaching month six, without access to the routers. The county has claimed they are not necessary.

The Show spoke with County Supervisor Bill Gates to discuss the latest decision from the Board of Supervisors and what he’s expecting when Senate Republicans release their initial report this week.
