The delivery of an audit report on the 2020 vote count to Arizona state Senate was delayed Monday after members of Cyber Ninjas contracted COVID-19.

Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann says Arizona Audit draft report won’t be sent to senate on Monday because Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan and two other members of the 5-member audit team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are quite sick.

Officials involved in the audit predicted that a report would be vetted and completed by the end of the summer. Fann described the next steps but did not provide a time.

“In addition to the illnesses, it wasn’t until Thursday that the Senate received the images of the ballot envelopes from Maricopa County and are hoping to have those analyzed as soon as possible to incorporate those results in the final report,” Fann said

FULL STATEMENT:

‚ÄúToday we are receiving a portion of the draft report from the election audit analysis team. 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. In addition to the illnesses, it wasn’t until Thursday that the Senate received the images of the ballot envelopes from Maricopa County and are hoping to have those analyzed as soon as possible to incorporate those results into the final report. The Senate legal team will meet Wednesday to start reviewing the draft report, and when the remainder of the draft is submitted, the Senate team will hold another meeting to continue checking for accuracy, clarity, and proof of documentation of findings. Once that is complete, the final report will be presented to the Senate Judiciary Committee and findings released to the public.”
