Arizona ‘Funny’ Cyber Ninja Recount Missed 16,000 Votes, Experts Say
New Review by Veteran Election Experts on the “Funny” Article Cyber Ninja Arizona Polling audit reports suggest that it was a bigger hoax than previously known, as auditors completely lost 16,000 votes in a re-examined sample.
Recount – that confirmed with it Joe Biden Won – It was highly inaccurate, according to a review by Larry Moore, founder of the Boston-based nonpartisan organization Polling set surveyand Arizona Republican data analyst Benny White and retired Clear Ballot chief technology officer Tim Halvorsen.
“The contradictions are too great to be brushed aside,” Moore He told the Republic of Arizona. “The truth is they made the numbers.”
This “blows up everything that’s happened in the last nine months. Anyone with a handy calculator and five minutes can tell.”
Analysts – aka “Check playersIn the constituencies – on Friday They released their findings From the Cyber Ninjas audit, which was conducted on behalf of the Arizona legislature to analyze 2.1 million votes in Maricopa County, which Biden won.
In just one of a series of surprising mistakes by Cyber Ninjas described in the report, an examination of 40 ballot boxes found that The number of ninja hands was as short as 16,000 ballot papers Nearly a third of all ballot papers are in the boxes. The votes were manually counted from the Cyber Ninjas in a total of 1,600 boxes, which could mean they lost hundreds of thousands of votes.
The Cyber Ninjas team claimed that their manual count almost matches the approved election results; The review indicated that it did not. Nor does it match the automated vote counting arranged by the company’s employer, the state Senate.
The report declared that this inconsistency alone renders any statement by the ninja about the votes in Maricopa County “meaningless.”
Cyber Ninjas concluded in their report last month that Biden did indeed win the presidential election (the process even found an additional 99 votes for him), but it still raises many questions that challenge the integrity of the Maricopa County election process.
Analysts called Cyber Ninjas’ claim that Trump actually received 261 fewer votes than previously counted as a “shiny thing” meaning “shifting credibility into an unbelievable hoax.”
In short, the analysts noted: “They have no experience in auditing elections, the ninja’s announcement that they confirmed, with a high degree of accuracy, the results of the elections of the second largest province in the country, we think, is laughable.”
State Republican Senator Karen Fan, who was tasked with overseeing the multi-million dollar Operation Cyber Ninjas, dismissed the review as “A lie is close to infections. She told the Arizona Republic she was not interested in reading the report.
she had previously marked Cyber Ninjas served as “the most detailed, demanding and relentless election audit ever conducted”.
Cyber Ninjas spokesperson Rod Thompson He told the New York Times,: “We are committed to our methodology and are completing the final report.”
The review was largely funded by Donald Trump– the support conspiracy theories Including the ousted National Security Adviser to Trump and pardoning the perpetrator Michael Flynn, Lawyer Sydney Powell ($550,000) and two reporters from the right One American News Network Those who promoted the illusion that the presidential election was “rigged” against Trump.
