Note to Readers: Our source for this story is a very liberal news outlet who expresses strong opinions about their opposition. Populist Press has decided to bring this story to you not because we agree with the the narrative, as we do not, but to draw attention to leftist tactics and their fear-mongering around a very fair and judicial process of auditing the election. It’s important to know the opposition’s strategy in order to defeat it.
Five months after the 2020 presidential election and three months into Joe Biden’s presidency, Republicans in the Arizona State Senate are using a Florida-based firm, Cyber Ninjas, to conduct an audit of votes in Maricopa County (which includes Phoenix). And attorneys for the company, according to the Arizona Republic, are asking a judge to keep its procedures for the audit secret and exclude the public and the media from a hearing where documents pertaining to the recount might be discussed.
The Arizona Republic’s Andrew Oxford reports that Judge Christopher Coury, on Friday, asked Cyber Ninjas to turn over its plans and procedures for the audit, but attorneys for the company said that filing the documents publicly would compromise the audit’s security. And Cyber Ninjas believe the documents enjoy legislative privilege because the company is conducting the audit at the request of the Arizona State Senate.
Coury has since recused himself from the case, and a new judge will need to be assigned to it.
