I have been involved in hundreds of audits around the world. I’ve performed audits across the US, in Canada, the UK, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Argentina, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand.
I’ve performed operational audits, IT-related audits, financial audits, and fraud audits.
I’ve reported on processes, financials, IT, and operational activities, some of which were very good and some that were not.
In all the audits I’ve participated in I have never seen the ‘auditee’ (the person who owns the process or financials) complain the way the Democrats do in response to the audit going on in Maricopa County.
I’ve never had auditees select their own auditors and have them perform their audits to show everything was working fine before I performed my audit, like the Board of Supervisors did in Maricopa County.
(In this case, the selected auditors reviewed a couple of audit machines and said they were working fine and because of this, they claimed the entire 2020 election was fine. They didn’t look at a single ballot – 2.1 million ballots and they didn’t look at one.)
I’ve never seen an auditee complain to the media about the audit that I was performing.
I’ve never had an auditee beg me not to perform an audit of their shop.
I’ve never had an auditee threaten a lawsuit if I performed an audit.
I’ve never had a politician push his fellow politicians and agencies to stop an audit.
Nope, never had any of this happen.
