Election officials call audit ‘bombshell’ a dud
Claims made about the election audit in Maricopa County that some have labeled a “bombshell” are really a dud, Maricopa County officials say.
County officials have issued what they said is a point-by-point knockdown of the most serious charges leveled by Doug Logan, the CEO of Cyber Ninjas, the firm hired by Senate President Karen Fann, and Ben Cotton founder of CyFir which bills itself as a digital forensics investigative company.
But the county was not allowed to provide a response at Thursday’s hearing at the state Senate as they were not invited and public testimony was not allowed.
All of this means that the issue is unlikely to be resolved in the near future. In fact, Jack Sellers, who chairs the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, said he is prepared for a future legal fight.
“Finish your audit, release the report, and be prepared to defend it in court,” he said in a prepared statement.
