(Jul. 15, 2021) — A few minutes after 1:00 PM/10:00 AM Arizona time on Thursday, The Post & Email attempted to access the live video stream of a hearing convened by members of the Arizona state senate on the progress of the Maricopa County forensic election audit.
Clicking the links in an article written approximately two hours earlier which led to a live video portal now results in a “hosting timeout” message after minutes of waiting.
The same response occurred when we attempted to access the hearing by landing directly on the Arizona legislature’s main website and clicking on the navigational tab, “Live Proceedings.”
While the Arizona legislature’s website is accessible, the “Schedule” navigational tab yields no response for this writer as of 1:37 p.m. EDT. After minutes of waiting, a graphic appeared along with a link referencing “today”:
At 12:50 p.m. EDT, Bobb again tweeted that the channel would carry the hearing but provided no link to access the video.
At 1:42 p.m. EDT, a reader of The Post & Email residing in the Western part of the country confirmed that he, too, was unable to “access Arizona Legislature website on any Internet browser platforms.”
At 1:49 p.m. EDT, The Post & Email noted that the Twitter account “Audit War Room” retweeted an observation from “Maricopa Arizona Audit” stating that “due to the overwhelming number of folks trying to view the Senate’s livestream, you may be unable to connect. Please know that One America News, Real America’s Voice, and Victory Channel will also be livestreaming the hearing.”
