Just one of the 282 ballots that pro-Trump auditors claimed had been cast in the names of deceased people, according to an investigation by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, could be connected to a deceased voter. The investigation by the Republican Senate candidate for Arizona is yet another blow to rumors that there will be widespread voter fraud in Arizona in the 2020 election.
The dead person’s ballot was not taken into account for calculating the results of the 2020 election, and a representative for Brnovich stated that the case’s facts did not justify the prosecution of the voter.
Brnovich stated that state investigators investigated every person whom Cyber Ninjas reported as dead, and many were quite astonished to hear that they were actually still alive, in a letter to pro-Trump Senate President Karen Fann. Brnovich examined a total of 409 allegedly deceased voters and discovered that there were very few possible cases. The names and birthdates of some of the claims, according to Brnovich, didn’t even match those of the deceased.
Cyber Ninjas, a business hired by Trump backers to conduct an audit of the election outcomes in Maricopa County, gave the list of deceased voters to the Arizona Senate. According to Cyber Ninjas’ analysis, Biden not only won the election but also by a margin of overcounted by 261 votes.
Despite their initial efforts to increase Trump’s vote total, Cyber Ninjas would go on to claim that Arizona had been the victim of election fraud. In order to draft a paper against the legislative certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, the company’s former CEO Doug Logan went as far as to speak for GOP senators.
According to a statement on the Maricopa County government website, an examination of reports provided by Cyber Ninjas revealed flawed analysis, false assertions, deceptive conclusions, and a lack of knowledge of federal and state election regulations. The county offers a report disputing each of Cyber Ninja’s specific assertions.
A judge issued a $50,000 daily fine order on Cyber Ninja in January for disobeying a directive to send audit materials to an Arizona newspaper.
Trump and his associates have maintained their claims of widespread election fraud despite numerous attempts to compel investigations into the alleged crime. Several of them are running for important posts in the state’s Republican primary on Tuesday, including Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
