Arizona 'Audit' Leader Starred in Election Conspiracy-Theory Movie - 2021-06-28
PHOENIX—The head of Arizona Republicans' controversial "audit" of 2020 presidential ballots was revealed Saturday as the anonymous star of a new movie claiming the election was stolen, raising questions about how credible any upcoming report from the supposed audit could be.
The revelation of Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan's involvement in the conspiracy theory movie The Deep Rig came at the film's premiere in a church on the outskirts of Phoenix, as Arizona Republicans gathered to celebrate the count's end.
The Deep Rig, which is based on a book by former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, features an array of discredited voter-fraud hunters presenting a hodgepodge of theories claiming that Joe Biden stole the election from Donald Trump. But while Deep Rig's claims may be on the fringe, its premiere drew support from top Arizona Republican officials, with GOP state Sen. Sonny Borrelli and Reps. Mark Finchem and Walt Blackman in the audience.
