Citizens Who Care Will Send Powerful Message
Judge Harrington accepted Pima County’s arguments, denied jurisdiction and refused to issue a court order that would prevent election tampering in future elections, after stating that in his court the people would have a level playing field. Link to Bill Risner’s Motion for Reconsideration and other documents:
However, the AZ Daily Star article Ariz. AG asks for Pima County's transportation election ballots | www.azstarnet.com ® now says that Pima County is on board with not destroying the ballots and declines comment on the County’s change in position.
The Pima County Republican Party has now joined the Democratic party to ask that the RTA ballots be preserved as evidence in putting more pressure on Judge Harrington. Risner plans to ask the Judge for a Stay, to postpone the destruction of the ballots and to KEEP THE BALLOTS IN PIMA COUNTY pending appeal. Risner will file a motion to examine the poll tapes and yellow sheets from the 2006 RTA election. The County and Pima County Treasurer Beth Ford’s office earlier last week agreed to allow a search for these records now boxed with the RTA ballots. The Court would set the conditions in a separate order preserving TRANSPARENCY AND CHAIN OF CUSTODY. We NEED A STRONG PUBLIC PRESENCE IN COURT. We would hope that the Judge would reasonably agree on to issue a Stay so critical to preserving the evidence to protect what we’ve been fighting for.
