OPINION: Who Is Arizona’s SOS Katie Hobbs? Is It Me, Or Do Her Twitter Accounts Portray Multiple Personas?

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

I’ll admit, before the 2020 election, I had taken for granted that the average Secretary of State position was a non-partisan role. Now I know I was very naive about that.

A week ago, all the buzz in Arizona was about the Sharpies and how many votes were getting canceled out because of the Sharpie ink.

My first question when I read about the Sharpies upset was: Anyone with a high school diploma understands that they’ve never been able to take an ACT or SAT with a Sharpie, so how can Arizona poll workers handing out the Sharpies not consider that fact? My second thought was: Never go to a voting booth without your own pen.

Team Katie Hobbs in Arizona was quick to suppress the conspiracy theories about the Sharpies during and shortly after election day. Hobbs was quite busy addressing concerned citizens via her personal @katiehobbs and her SOS @SecretaryHobbs Twitter accounts.

This week, Katie Hobbs is back in the news because of her Twitter.

Before I go on, I’d like to thank Al Gore and his creation of an Internet that is forever.

Not only is Katie Hobbs a Democrat, but she is also clearly a BLM Democrat. And in 2017, Katie Hobbs made it clear on Twitter her belief that Trump and his supporters are Neo-Nazis.

This is Arizona’s secretary of state. The one in charge of certifying the election. Yes, you read that right.

Hobbs is now also rejecting an independent analysis of Arizona’s voting data.

Gosh, I wonder why.

I’m not done. There’s this drama too:

During her run-up to the 2018 mid-term election, here’s what Hobbs had to say at an Arizona political event in Flagstaff:

Speaking at a Flagstaff gathering of Democrats on April 13, (2018) Hobbs said that having her in the position would help those in her party hold offices they win in the Nov. 6 (2018) election.
“We have so much opportunity this year. I think we’re going to do really well in electing statewide Democrats,” Hobbs said.
“And the secretary of state’s office is how we’re going to hold onto those wins, how we’re going to continue to make gains in the Legislature, and really create a state that reflects all of our values.”
Hobbs’ comments came after she talked about how she thinks the elections system in Arizona is rigged to exclude some voters. She said she wants to fight to make the process open to every eligible voter.

How does that make you feel about a fair and balanced, and fraud-proof, vote in Arizona?

I’ll let you decide.

In addition to Katie Hobbs and the Arizona SOS seat, Twitter buzz says Dominion voting machines are used in Arizona. Have you heard about Dominion? Yeah, it’s a big deal.

There’s a Joseph Stalin quote for all of this, you know, the one where he said how voters decide nothing and it’s all about who counts the votes? There’s also the ‘1984’ factor that keeps me from inserting Stalin’s quote. I don’t want to get flagged by social media or by the likes of Snopes, so I won’t go there. Hopefully, you get the idea.

Bottom line: The Dominion story is way bigger than just Arizona.

I’d love to get Katie Hobbs’ opinion on what she thinks about Dominion. Hey, Ms. Hobbs, is Dominion owned and operated by the likes ‘Neo-Nazis’ (wink)?

Something tells me we’ll find out.
