CNN reporter Kyung Lah confronted the person behind the audit of the 2020 election currently underway in Maricopa County, Arizona. The official’s name is Karen Fann, and she is the Arizona State Senate President and a member of the Republican Party. Although the election was six months ago and Joe Biden isn’t going anywhere, right-wing lawmakers around the country keep looking to see if they can find any evidence that will support their widespread voter fraud theory. CNN’s Lah asked Fann why the audit is being done if there isn’t even circumstantial evidence to suggest there was fraud in the election. Fann tried to flip the burden of proof in a nonsensical way, asking Lah how she could be so sure that there wasn’t fraud in the election. Her position was that as long as everyone is not 100% sure that there wasn’t fraud in the election, it makes sense to continue investigating. While healthy skepticism is good, unquenchable never-ending skepticism is not and it’s commonly associated with conspiratorial thinking. Even after this audit wraps up, and presumably finds nothing, these Republicans will move onto the next state and continue fumbling around.
