Fraudit confirms Biden/Kelly wins; report rife with misleading and incorrect information

A monthslong hand recount of Maricopa County’s 2020 vote confirmed that President Joe Biden won and the election was not “stolen” from former President Donald Trump, according to early versions of a report prepared for the Arizona Senate.

The three-volume report by the Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor, includes results that show Trump lost by a wider margin than the county’s official election results. The data in the report also confirms that U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly won in the county. (AZCentral)

The report was leaked a day prior to the official presentation on September 24, 2021.

Ken Matta on Twitter had a prediction:

"Today, the Cyber Ninja report on the Maricopa audit will be presented to the Senate. Myself and many other election and security experts have had time to review a document that appears be a draft version of the report. Here's my take on what's going to happen, based on that:"

During the presentation on September 24, Maricopa County fact-checked the claims live on Twitter during the presentation. Highlights include:

"Karen Fann's statement that we just stopped checking signatures is absolutely false."

"So why more cured signatures in Nov. 2020? Maricopa County hired additional staff to contact valid voters and allow them the opportunity to cure their signature. That included a night shift of 40 people from Oct. 29- Nov. 10. BTW, by law, you can cure signatures 5 business days after the election. Maricopa County is committed to following state law and helping people vote."

Special bipartisan election boards assist voters who may need assistance w/ signing affidavits. Often, in case of severe medical conditions such as stroke, people may only be able to make a small mark such as an X. Our boards visually affirm the marks are the voter's correct sig.

A note on signature validation. We don’t “predict” signatures. We have trained staff looking at every signature. We do a complete signature analysis, the accuracy of which has been proven in court. See Ward v. Jackson.

Re: duplicated ballots. Every time a voter has a questioned signature or a blank envelope, we work with that voter to cure the signature. That's our staff doing their job to contact voters with questioned signatures or blank ballots. Only one ballot is counted.

Reminder that— under court supervision (where you can’t lie willy nilly) as a part of 1 of 8 unsuccessful court cases — Kelli ward’s handwriting expert looked at a sample of the signature affidavits and found… 0 signs of inaccuracy or fraud.
