QAnon has taken over the Republican Celebration as Republicans in Arizona are utilizing UV lights to scan ballots to seek out secret Trump watermarks.
That is virtually too loopy to be believed:
Holy moly. That is the fringiest of the perimeter.
QAnon cult members have claimed for months that Donald Trump secretly watermarked ballots to catch Democrats doing fraud.

The AZ “audit” is being overseen by a QAnon cult member, and one of many poll counters is somebody who was on the assault on the Capitol.
What is occurring in Arizona is an emblem of the collective derangement of a political celebration. Generally when events lose presidential elections, they get introspective and take a tough have a look at themselves and ask the robust questions on their positions and messages.
Different occasions, a celebration has a collective meltdown and decides to seek out proof that an election was stolen when it wasn’t.
It might have been unimaginable for Donald Trump to place secret watermarks on ballots as a result of the ballots should not federally managed, however Republicans have by no means been recognized to let actuality intrude with their conspiracies.
The rationale why nobody exterior of the Trump orbit is taking the “audit” significantly is that it’s a conspiracy conference convened by a state Republican Celebration. The nationwide Republican Party may be dying at the national level, however in some states it has descended into conspiracy insanity.
