Bill Gates is vice chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, one of four Republicans on that body. On Monday afternoon, he made his frustrations with the ongoing “audit” of votes from the 2020 general election in that county apparent.

“It’s time to say enough is enough,” Gates said. “It is time to push back on the ‘big lie.’ We must do this. We must do this as a member of the Republican Party, we must do this as a member of the Board of Supervisors. We need to do this as a country.”

This is going to cause no end of problems no matter how poorly conducted this so-called audit is. The only real way it won’t is if it doesn’t show any significant issues and reports the same result as the initial counts, but it won’t. It is designed not to.
