Arizona Senate hires a 'Stop the Steal' advocate to lead 2020 election audit - 2021-03-31
The audit team that Senate President Karen Fann selected to examine the 2020 general election in Maricopa County will be led by a company owned by an advocate of the "Stop the Steal" movement who repeatedly alleged on social media that the election was rigged against former President Donald Trump.
Fann announced on Wednesday that she'd selected four companies to participate in an extensive audit and recount of the election, led by Cyber Ninjas, an Florida-based cybersecurity company. Cyber Ninjas is owned by Doug Logan, who has been an active promoter of baseless conspiracy theories alleging widespread election fraud last year, including in Arizona.
"I'm tired of hearing people say there was no fraud. It happened, it's real, and people better get wise fast," read a tweet from a since-suspended account that Logan retweeted on Dec. 31.
