During Saturday's audit of Pima County ballots from Arizona's primary election, official observer John Brakey was forcibly removed by sheriffs when he raised questions about possible ballot tampering. At least seven ballot bags arrived unlocked or lacked proper chain of custody documentation. Elections Director Brad Nelson had Brakey arrested and charged with criminal trespass.
"I was doing my job!" Brakey said, who represented the Democratic and Libertarian parties in an official capacity at the state-mandated audit. "The first thing you do is check the seals. Are the ballot bags locked? Do the numbers on the seals match the seal number listed on the documentation inside of the bag? This lets us know that the ballots were properly stored and sealed by election workers, and arrived with chain of custody intact."
Brakey is a co-founder of Arizona-based AUDIT-AZ, which stands for Americans United for Democracy, Integrity and Transparency in Elections. He also helps coordinate the Investigations Unit of Election Defense Alliance. Election observation is a critical task that advocates have long promoted. Brakey agrees.

Those Sherrifs need a complete refresher course in the Law. Obviously though being in Arizona these Sherrifs are probably 6th Grade dropouts who are on the take to every drug dealer across the border, they are dirty filthy people on that Sheriffs department and they should be sent to their desired homeland: Mexico.
We do not need people like that in the new America.
