“Now is the summer of our discontent made glorious winter by this Arizona audit” – apologies to Gloucester in William Shakespeare’s Richard III
That’s exactly what the Democrat-media complex are feeling these days – a wintry blast from Maricopa County, thanks to the Arizona audit. They have been agitated and displaying tight sphincters since that hearing convened by the Arizona Senate on 15 July, spinning the bombshells furiously to the point of bald-faced lying as previously reported here.
The controlled opposition RINOs are not taking a back seat to their pals in the Democrat Party and are self-identifying every single day. We have seen many of them effectively end their political careers by their public statements since 6 January (some of them are so obtuse as to not even understand that yet!):
- Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) who has been bleating incessantly since 6 January that “President Trump incited an insurrection” and was named by San Fran Nan to her hyper-partisan “insurrection investigation”
- The ten House Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump on 13 January.
- Michigan State Senator Ed McBroom and pals released an absurd report on the 2020 election claiming that a forensic audit was “not warranted.”
- In the face of new evidence of election fraud, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been backtracking on his claims that 2020 was a clean election in hopes of staving off primary challengers.
- Arizona State Senator Paul Boyer “is stymying efforts to hold election officials in [Maricopa County] in contempt for refusing to fully comply with subpoenas deemed lawful by a court.”
And then there is Arizona Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita who was booed off the stage at Saturday’s “Rally to Protect Our Elections” in Phoenix, sponsored by Turning Point USA. She found out bigly that Arizonans have been red-pilled by the ongoing Arizona audit. They are paying attention and are better informed than ever before. This 90-second video gives me great hope that America isn’t going to go quietly into the Democrat-Communist night just yet:
Did you catch how flustered she became as the boos became louder and cut short her speech? Arizonans – and a lot of other Americans! – understand full well that she voted against SB1241, which contained 34 election integrity and security provisions aimed at fixing problems in Arizona, and that anyone voting against election integrity laws is telegraphing opposition to one of the most important issues of the day that is supported by a majority of Americans.
After getting booed off the stage, Jordan Conradson tried to interview her, but she had security give him the boot from the event and had him arrested for “harassing her” (so much for freedom of the press!). Then, she tweeted out a tirade in an attempt to defend her actions in voting against SB1241:
I’ve been on the frontlines of the battle for election integrity for the last 10 years. I wrote the law banning ballot harvesting, cleaned-up our mail-in voter rolls, strengthened ID requirements just to name a few of my accomplishments, something every candidate on that stage praised. I’ll put my record of fighting for election integrity up against anyone. What I won’t do is vote for “show” legislation that does nothing to strengthen election integrity and introduced for self serving reasons.
There’s too much at stake. Our election system is under constant assault by the left, and I won’t support bills that fail to strengthen our election system.
The same holds true for the audit. I supported the audit, but I do not support the Trump audit any longer.
I wanted to review our election processes and see what, if anything, could be improved. Sadly, it’s now become clear that the audit has been botched. The total lack of competence by Karen Fann over the last 5 months has deprived the voters of Arizona a comprehensive accounting of the 2020 election. That’s inexcusable, but it shows what can happen when Republicans do not take election integrity deadly serious.

In short, she upped the ante by publicly declaring that she is against the “Trump audit.” Yeah, like she ever was for it (not!). Any elected “Republican” who is against the audit is beyond the pale and not re-electable. Does she (or any other RINO who is against forensic audits, for that matter) seriously think that she is helping her political career with these public statements?
In response to that Twitter tirade, Arizona Senator Kelly Townsend (R) slipped Ugenti-Rita a veiled threat: “As a veteran, I believe the only thing that is important right now is to get our elections secured. Americans, choose wisely in 2022, support those who support the audit. You will know who does, and who does not. Do not back down.”

Ugenti-Rita kept digging her hole deeper by accusing Townsend of “break[ing] the law by committing trespassing by re-entering the building to continue to harass me” when Townsend invited Conradson back into the event. Townsend then hammered a nail in Ugenti-Rita’s coffin: “This is pure libel. I did not encourage him to break the law, I defended him against your tyranny and violation of the 1st amendment. You have violated your oath … at this point you need to resign.”
I want to personally thank RINOs like Michelle Ugenti-Rita for revealing who they really are. It makes primarying and retiring them MUCH easier! Please, please, please, keep it up, RINOs.
