CEO of Cyber Ninjas, Doug Logan, expatiating on the discoveries from the audit said to the senators that auditors couldn’t find any record made of Maricopa County pushing more than 74,000 mail-in ballots and also that about 18,000 persons who voted were taken off voter rolls “soon after the election.” He also talked about some “11,326 persons who were not on the voter rolls on Nov. 7, 2020, but appeared on the rolls on Dec. 4, 2020, and 3,981 persons who voted after their registration after the date, Oct. 15, 2020.”
After the hearing, some Republican senators reacted to the new findings calling for Arizona’s 11 electors—who went for Biden—to be recalled.
“A new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right,” Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican, tweeted last week.
Former President Donald Trump issued a statement positing that the ballot audit unveiled some irregularities and fraud that would have swayed the election in his favor last year. On July 15, the Senate held a hearing, amidst a months-long review carried on by Florida-based tech firm Cyber Ninjas and teams told lawmakers they found about some major discrepancies.
Arizona Senate President Karen Fann's, (a Republican) comments came as soon after. She told One America News Network (OANN), covering the ballot audit of Maricopa County, that though the upper chamber has the power to provide auditors with the materials they require —including through the use of subpoenas, the certification of electors is a different matter.
“The Senate body—we do not have the authority to do that. So, this is what we have said, and I want to make this very clear on the record,” the Republican state leader said on July 16 referring to the elector being recalled which could alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
In her OANN interview, she also said that the Senate in this situation only has “the power to subpoena the information. This is because we make laws,”. She also noted that they’re “entitled to have the necessary information to determine how to write those laws.”
“That’s why we are successful in court, and that’s what we’re doing. It’s all about election integrity. It’s not about the Trump–Biden race. It’s not about the Kelly–Martha McSally race,” she remarked, referring to the 2020 presidential election and the U.S. Senate race that was won by Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.).
