During the audit process, the auditors requested passwords and access to routers used in the 2020 election. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors are reportedly unable to provide these things, despite the Senate demanding they be released.

Here is the summary of the Board of Supervisors’ meeting:
The question is: is the Board of Supervisors really not able to provide this information, or is this just another part of Democrats’ attempt to stop the audit from happening? Every attempt so far has failed, including four lawsuits against the Arizona Senate. They have also weaponized the civil rights division of the Department of Justice to go after the audit, convincing them to send a letter to the president of the Arizona Senate, Karen Fann, claiming that the audit violates a federal law that requires ballots to remain in the control of elections officials for 22 months. The letter also claims that the part of the audit that involves speaking to voters to ensure the ballot cast in their name was legitimate amounts to voter intimidation. After all that, would it really surprise anyone that the Board of Supervisors’ claims are just another attempt to sabotage the audit?
If they had just complied with the audit from the beginning, there wouldn’t be questions as to whether they were acting in a corrupt fashion.
