Arizona official refutes report that counted 282 dead voters

PHOENIX (AP) – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Monday that his investigators found only one dead voter after thoroughly reviewing the findings of a partisan review of the 2020 election that alleged 282 ballots were cast in the name of someone who had died .

The finding by the Republican attorney general, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s primary, further discredits the review carried out last year. The review was led by an inexperienced firm, Cyber ​​Ninjas, and carried out largely by supporters of Donald Trump who mistakenly believe the election was stolen from him.

“Our agents investigated all individuals that Cyber ​​Ninjas reported as dead, and many were very surprised to learn that they were reportedly dead,” Brnovich wrote in a letter to state Senate President Karen Fann, who used her subpoena power to obtain ballots. tabs and election data and hired Cyber ​​Ninjas for what she called a “forensic audit.”

For the one substantiated incident, “the facts of the case did not support prosecution,” said Ryan Anderson, a spokesman for Brnovich. He said the dead man’s ballot was not counted. None of the three criminal cases filed by the Attorney General against dead voters were related to the Cyber ​​Ninjas investigation, he said.

Brnovich did not say whether any charges had been filed in connection with the one substantiated incident, and his spokesman, Ryan Anderson, did not return a phone call and text message. All other people listed by Cyber ​​Ninjas who died “were found to be current voters,” Brnovich wrote.

Combined with other reports of dead voters, Brnovich’s election integrity unit investigated a total of 409 names and produced “only a handful of potential cases.”

Brnovich vouched for the legitimacy of the election immediately after President Joe Biden’s victory, but later made his investigation public of the Cyber ​​Ninjas allegations when he sought Trump’s endorsement of the Senate campaign. Trump eventually issued a scathing statement saying Brnovich did not do enough to advance his allegations of fraud and supporting businessman Blake Masters.

Federal and state election officials and Trump’s own attorney general have said there is no credible evidence that the election was tainted. The former president’s claims of fraud were also rejected by the courts, including by judges Trump appointed.

The Cyber ​​Ninjas review looked at data, machines and ballots from Maricopa County, the state’s largest. It gave a report which experts described as full of errors, biases and flawed methodology. Still, even the partisan review came up with a vote count that would not have changed the result, finding Biden won by 360 more votes than the official results.
