Arizona’s Election Integrity Forensic Audit Receives $5.7M in Private Donations
Cyber Ninjas, the firm hired to carry out the audit, permitted donations
Arizona’s forensic audit of Maricopa County received $5.7 million in private donations since the recount started in April, the auditing firm has announced.
The recount of nearly 2.1 million ballots and machines initially budgeted $150,000 in taxpayer money.
However, Cyber Ninjas, the firm hired to carry out the audit, also permitted donations.
The Washington Post reported:
“The announcement from Cyber Ninjas came as Arizona Senate President Karen Fann announced Wednesday that the audit has concluded its public efforts — ballots will be returned Thursday to Maricopa County."
The final report of Cyber Ninjas’ audit is expected in August.
In June, former Overstock chief executive Patrick Byrne said: “that he had personally donated $500,000 to the Arizona effort and that his group was raising money from others, too.”
A further $605,000 was donated by America News host Christina Bobb led the group Voices and Votes.
Democrat Joe Biden certified the victor of Arizona’s 11 Electoral College votes in November 2020 by a small margin of fewer than 11,000 votes out of three million casts.
The majority of the state’s votes were cast in Maricopa County, which is undergoing the forensic audit.
Arizona Democrats have pushed hard again the audit, one example is the announcement from wo Democrat members of the House Oversight Committee of an investigation of the Arizona State Senate forensic audit.
Most Arizona Republicans believe the audit will show Donald Trump, not Biden, won the state’s 2020 election.
Auditors told Arizona state Senate President Karen Fann and state Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Warren Petersen that there could be as many as 74,000 absentee ballots mail-in records missing.
“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration,” Trump wrote.
"It is the one way to know if the problems are real problems or just clerical mistakes. There are ~ 74,000 ballots that came back, but there is no indication that they were ever sent out by the county!”
Trump concluded his statement with this:
“The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election,” Trump wrote.
“In any event, the Senate patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?”
