(ConservativePeak.com)- Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs not only refuses to audit the vote in her state, amidst one of the most contentious and potentially fraudulent elections in American history, it was also revealed this week that she once compared Trump voters to neo-Nazis.
Well, that’s certainly one way to instil confidence in the integrity of the election…
Hobbs this week called the election in Arizona a “success” and denied requests by Republican lawmakers to audit the vote and test voting machines to ensure there were no flaws or glitches as have been seen in other states.
The Secretary of State’s refusal to engage in an audit of the votes to ensure election security is a very different approach than what she promised back in 2018 when she said that election security was a priority. She announced in October of that year that she was putting together a security task force to ensure the election process is a secure one.
“We’re going to start with the assessment that’s been done and kind of see where that is and also where the governor’s cybersecurity task force is, in terms of elections,” she said at the time. “We want to make sure we’re addressing the vulnerabilities that exist in all the systems, we have to make sure that our elections are secure.”
So why isn’t she doing that this time?
As if that wasn’t curious enough, social media users unearthed comments made by Hobbs back in 2017 in which she described voters for President Trump as neo-Nazis.
“[Donald Trump] has made it abundantly clear he’s more interested in pandering to his neo-nazis base than being @POTUS for all Americans,” she claimed.

President Donald Trump’s base includes people of all races and backgrounds. In the 2020 election, the president also received more minority votes than any other Republican candidate in recent history.
The President is on the side of the freaking Nazis. Don’t just say stuff – DO SOMETHING!!! https://t.co/Es9ScskF58

Hobbs also said on August 12, 2017, that President Trump is “on the side of the freaking Nazis.”
The claims are not only untrue, they are demonstrably untrue. President Donald Trump has condemned white nationalism and neo-Nazi dozens of times.
Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ refusal to audit the vote in Arizona is very different to the approach being taken in Georgia, where a full hand recount of the vote will occur along with an audit to ensure that the election was not compromised.
