The final draft of the pro-Trump Arizona election “audit” commissioned by the state’s Republican Party was supposed to arrive on Monday. Unfortunately, the firm hired to conduct the so-called review of Maricopa County’s election results had to call in sick with COVID-19.
“Today we are receiving a portion of the draft report from the election audit analysis team,” Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, said in a Monday statement. “The team expected to have the full draft ready for the Senate today, but unfortunately Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan and two other members of the five-person audit team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are quite sick.”
Fann also claimed that outside of the conspiracy-peddling Logan and others becoming ill with coronavirus, the Senate didn’t receive “images of the ballot envelopes from Maricopa Country” until this past Thursday, further blaming that on the delay of the final report long-promised for Monday.
