Arizona Senate President Karen Fann is telling the contractors who led the largely discredited review of 2020 Maricopa County election results to turn over public records in their possession.
Fann, who launched the multimillion-dollar hand count of 2.1 million ballots, warned Cyber Ninjas and three subcontrators that failure to turn over related records could result in sharp penalties.
Her demand comes days after a Maricopa County Superior Court judge found Cyber Ninjas in contempt and fined the company $50,000 a day for failing to produce records to the Senate.
“This duty extends to but is not necessarily limited to emails, text messages, social media postings, and paper files that are within your custody or control,” Fann said in her letter dated Monday. “Failure to do so may give rise to very significant penalties for any business organization or individual responsible.”
The letter went to Cyber Ninjas, the Florida company hired to lead the months-long ballot review, and three subcontractors: StratTech Solutions in Scottsdale; WakeTSI in West Chester, Pennsylvania; and CyFIR in Ashburn, Virginia.
