Arizona Senate President Karen Fann offered a quick update on the status of a report on the Maricopa County 2020 election audit.
The Republican leader stated that the companies hired to conduct the review, led by Cyber Ninjas, are putting together a report on their findings from the audit. The report has been widely panned by county officials and others, including Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
“Confirming audit companies are preparing the draft report to present to the senate team. Senate team will then review for accuracy and clarity for final report which will be released publicly,” Fann said in a tweet on Monday.
Randy Pullen, a spokesman for the Maricopa audit, said the team will submit its report to the Senate by the end of the week. The Senate will then have the option of suggesting modifications before the final report is issued. The audit team will submit a separate report, also by Friday, on the machine tally it conducted to count the number of ballots cast in the general election.
Top Arizona Senate Republicans, including Fann, recently issued fresh subpoenas to Maricopa County officials and Dominion Voting Systems for materials needed to finish a report, including router access and network logins for ballot tabulation devices, among other things.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and Dominion have both refused to comply with the new subpoenas. Sen. Sonny Borrelli, R-Lake Havasu City, has asked the attorney general’s office to enforce the subpoena against the county.
If the Senate receives any of the materials requested in the subpoenas, Pullen said the audit team could issue an addendum to its report.
The audit was ordered by the Senate months after the 2020 election. Former President Trump insisted that the election was rigged against him.
