Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I am disappointed in your article that ran Nov. 19, "Pinal GOP chair 'hearing stories' about voting machines in Maricopa County" because your article omits several important facts, the most salient of which is that not all counties used Dominion vote counting software. The issue is with known irregularities with Dominion, exploitable weaknesses and Dominion's connections to Democrat operatives. Your article omits this entirely and makes it look like Mr. Burke's suggestion is to recount counties based on political outcomes, which is not at all the case.
Secondly, your article's title is misleading. Political and elections officials are not merely "hearing stories" but have verified complaints, under oath, from voters in Maricopa County that irregularities have occurred, such as, for example, voters arriving at a precinct to vote on election day only to find that a vote was already recorded for them.
Elections in America are sacred and it is absolutely the case that more scrutiny of the process should occur, not less. The newspaper should applaud a man for standing up for scrutiny, not mislead readers.
