Arizona Senate tells Cyber Ninjas to release 2020 election audio records

The Arizona state senate asked Cyber Ninjas on Wednesday to release all public records related to the 2020 presidential election audit in Maricopa County following a state Supreme Court ruling.

“In a letter to Cyber Ninjas on Tuesday, Fann, R-Prescott, asked the company to immediately provide records it and its subcontractors possess ‘with a substantial nexus to the audit.’” according to the Arizona Mirror.

“That includes, ‘without limitation,’ all documents and communications related to the planning, performance and execution of the so-called audit, all policies and procedures used for the audit, documents pertaining to funding and staffing, ‘and all records that are reasonably necessary or appropriate to maintain an accurate knowledge of activities concerning the 2020 Maricopa County election audit,’” the report added.

What Happened?

The Arizona Supreme Court denied on Tuesday an attempt by Republicans to bypass compliance for the request of public records .

The ruling affirmed that the records under the control of auditing firm Cyber Ninjas “are public records and must be released.”

“There is no dispute that the audit is being conducted with public funds, and that Cyber Ninjas and its sub-vendors are agents of the Senate,” the court wrote.

“In this case the Senate has argued no exemption that, if properly recognized, would shield itself from the responsibility to inform the public of activities regarding the audit,” the ruling added.

What About the Audit?

The audit team had previously announced plans to present its audit findings this week after a long delay following the massive recount in Arizona’s most populous county.

The matter involves “tens of thousands of documents” according to American Oversight. These records should now soon become publicly available, offering more insight into the audit process.

Some believe the public revealing of the records may still be delayed. However, Cyber Ninjas, the main firm in the audit, has yet to publicly comment.
