FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Arizona Senate hires auditor to review 2020 election in Maricopa County


(Phoenix, State Capitol) --- Arizona Senate leadership today announced it has hired a team of independent auditors to complete a comprehensive, full forensic audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, including a hand recount of all ballots.


After months of interviewing various forensic auditors, the Arizona Senate has found a qualified team consisting of Wake Technology Services, Inc., CyFIR, LLC, Digital Discovery, and Cyber Ninjas, Inc. to conduct the audit.


The team will be led by Cyber Ninjas, a cyber security company with a focus on application security, working across financial services and government sectors.


CyFIR is a digital security and forensics company specializing in enterprise incident response, computer forensics and expert witness support to litigation. Notable past engagements include the discovery of the Office of Personnel Management Breach in 2015 and forensic support to the largest individual bank fraud in the history of the IMF. As specialists supporting the highest levels of government and private industry, they are extremely familiar with responding to nation-state cyber activity, including Advanced Persistent Threats (APT).


Members of the Wake Technology Services group have performed hand-count audits in Fulton County, PA and in New Mexico as part of the 2020 General Election cycle. In addition, team members have been involved in investigating election fraud issues, dating back to 1994. In that 1994 case, this team member worked closely with the FBI during the investigation. Wake Technology Services team members also include intelligence analysts and fraud investigators from a variety of industries.


The audit will validate every area of the voting process to ensure the integrity of the vote. The scope of work will include, but is not limited to, scanning all the ballots, a full manual recount, auditing the registration and votes cast, the vote counts, and the electronic voting system. At the conclusion of the audit, the auditor will issue a report detailing all findings discovered during the assessment.


Senate leadership expects this audit to be done in a transparent manner with the cooperation of Maricopa County. "Our people need to be assured that the Senate and Maricopa County can work together on this audit, to bring integrity to the election process," said Senate President Karen Fann. "As Board Chair Sellers and County Recorder Richer wrote in the Arizona Republic

'a democracy cannot survive if its people do not believe elections are free and fair.' They also acknowledge a significant number of voters want the additional assurance that a full forensic audit might bring. I look forward to continued cooperation."


Because it is an independent audit, leadership will not be directly involved, and members do not expect to comment on any of the processes of the audit until the report is issued in about 60 days.

This is without doubt the most important thing happening in our country today. The obstruction has gone on far too long and Americans all over are furious at the despicable traitors that have tried to subvert our voting system. They must be made to pay dearly so that this will never happen again. No plea deals, no bargaining - off to jail with them for a long, long time. Otherwise we will never have a fair election again.

The BOS is so busted I'm shocked that one of the rats hasn't ratted out their partners in crime to make a deal and save themselves.

I'm an automation engineer and have read the user manuals for both Dominion and ES&S tabulators. It's disgusting that the people we pay and trusted purchased this equipment. It is very obvious that these were designed to CALCULATE not COUNT votes. All of these traitors need to be removed from office as soon as legally possible.
