The Arizona state Senate’s liaison overseeing the 2020 election audit in the state announced Wednesday that he will resign from his role.
Ken Bennett, a former Arizona secretary of state, said he was stepping down from his role after he was denied access to the facility where the audit’s vote counting is taking place. He was later asked to stay on in his position after his access was denied.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Right now, I’m a liaison in name only,” Bennett said on KFYI Wednesday, referencing the “Republican In Name Only” moniker that far-right Republicans dub some centrists. “Being locked out at this critical point…makes it impossible for me to be a true liaison for the Senate.”
The report explains that last week, after Bennett allegedly shared early results with people outside of the audit process, he was barred from entering the building by top Senate Republicans. Bennett said he shared sample data from the ballot box counts with election technology analysts Larry Moore and Benny White.
LISTEN to Bennett’s comments and explanation in the audio below:
“The counting of the ballots is complete and they are being returned to Maricopa County. Now we wait for the draft and final reports. Ken Bennett will be an important part of those reports,” tweeted Arizona senate president Karen Fann, in response to the news that Bennett said he is stepping down.

Bennett left the door open to being part of the final report “if I can be reinstated to the information” that will be used. But he said “I cannot put a rubber stamp on a product that I’m being locked out of its development.”
