Points
  • An ongoing 'audit" of the 2020 presidential election in Maricopa County, Arizona, is taking its cues straight from a man intimately tied to the QAnon conspiracy theory.
  • President Joe Biden won Arizona'and Maricopa County'in the 2020 election, a victory that was upheld by multiple bipartisan reviews.
  • But last week, a Republican-led coalition launched its own recount of Maricopa County's votes, a process helmed by a conspiracy-tweeting tech CEO and funded by an unknown slate of donors.
  • The counting has just begun, but already the audit has become almost inextricable from the far-right internet.
  • There, audit-watchers share tips and concerns about security offered by Ron Watkins, a man suspected of helping birth the QAnon craze.
