Since 2017, Q had guided followers to expect former President Donald Trump to save the world from a secretive cabal of sex trafficking and pedophile government officials before he left office.Q followers are now focused on another fantastical possibility: overturning the 2020 presidential election and returning Trump to the White House.The audit, they say, will prove widespread election fraud here that will lead other states to examine their results, a theory they summarize by saying that Arizona will be “the first domino to fall.”The senators who ordered this audit say it is not intended to overturn the election results or lead to Arizona reversing the certification of its electoral votes for President Joe Biden.But much of what has happened here has seemingly spiraled out of their control, under the leadership of Doug Logan, CEO of Cyber Ninjas. But major funding appears to be coming from Trump extremists such as Q believer Lin Wood.The November election results turned the reliably red Arizona into a battleground purple state, with voters showing a preference for Biden over Trump and electing Mark Kelly a U.S. senator, putting both of Arizona's Senate seats into the Democratic column.But since the audit began, Arizona has become the focal point for right-wing extremists, including QAnon followers, across the world.The audit has served to buoy the spirits of some QAnon followers who had lost hope after Trump’s defeat.“This is the best I’ve felt since the election,” said Dave Hayes of Gilbert, who under the name Praying Medic has authored two books about QAnon since 2020. “The audit is The Great Awakening in how we’ve been manipulated by those that want to control us,” Just Stan wrote June 2 on the Arizona Audit Watch Chat channel.Another user, Pepe Lives Matter, posted to Telegram on Wednesday that the audit was always part of Q's foretold plan, as it would prevent corrupt officials from rigging future elections. Q adherents attach significance to the number 17 as Q is numerically the 17th letter of the alphabet.Gail Golic, who serves on the precinct committee for her Scottsdale legislative district, and who has talked in speeches and videos about being in touch with state lawmakers regarding the audit, has posted versions of the Q phrase “great awakening” on both her Twitter and Telegram accounts.“The Great Awakening Is Upon Us!” Golic wrote on her Twitter page on Tuesday.Golic told viewers on YouTube that she had stopped working as a real estate agent and was instead devoting herself full time to investigating election fraud. Harris has at first told The Arizona Republic that she was involved in the audit, but then said she couldn’t say if she was.Harris posts video updates about the audit on her YouTube channel as many as three times a day.In a recent video, Harris has a picture hanging behind her of dominoes, with the words “May Arizona be the first Domino to fall.” A second sign says, “The best is yet to come,” another Q catchphrase.On her Facebook page, Harris posted a QAnon video, an essay and a photo she apparently took herself of a man wearing a shirt with the QAnon slogan #WWG1WGA, according to Media Matters. Q followers organized “Save the Children” rallies, masking a belief that a global cabal was engaged in child trafficking behind an innocuous name.And in the days after Nov. 3, as votes were still being counted, Trump supporters, some of them armed, took to the parking lot outside of the county’s election department.Among them: followers of Q.Jake Angeli, known as the QAnon shaman, clad in face paint and a horned and furry helmet, emerged as a leader at those demonstrations.Angeli was among those arrested after taking part in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, part of what the government said was a bid to stop the election from being certified.As the audit moved from pipe dream to reality, several of the key players who became involved had ties to the QAnon conspiracy.Josh Barnett, who was among the people who organized the drive for the audit, posted about Q during 2020 when he was making an unsuccessful run for Congress. Watkins suggested that an audit of ballots would show Trump with “200k more votes than previously reported in Arizona.”A spokesperson for Cyber Ninjas, in response to questions from The Republic, said Logan was not a follower of Q."Doug Logan does not subscribe to Q theories. It has since been used by several other commenters across Telegram.Sidney Powell, who represented Trump in a string of failed lawsuits related to the election, used the phrase "fraud vitiates everything" during her speech at a QAnon conference in Dallas in late May.In June, Watkins said the Maricopa County audit would trigger other states and counties to start similar efforts should it find significant fraud."Wont be long before critical mass is achieved," he wrote in the post on Wednesday, "and all the dominoes come crashing down."Hayes, who as Praying Medic interpreted Q's posts to an audience that had once reached 750,000 followers, said in the May webcast that there was meaning to draw from Q's scant post-election writings.“Q was definitely giving us a signal to rise up and be heard,” Hayes said. “Wrong, right or indifferent, it did.”The turning point, according to a few supervisors, was in February, when the Senate considered holding the supervisors in contempt, and perhaps arresting them, for not fully responding to their subpoenas.Chucri said he doesn’t pay attention to what Q followers believe, and he won’t entertain the many conspiracy theories that the audit is addressing.“Even as a conservative Republican, I won’t partake in the nonsense or silliness,” he said.But, sprinkled into the emails sent to elected officials were phrases from the QAnon world.One constituent ended an email to Jack Sellers, chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors with a signature QAnon phrase.
