Senate President Karen Fann said the Senate will get just a partial report on the 2020 election audit Monday, due to a COVID-19 outbreak that has left three members of the Cyber Ninjas team "quite sick."

This certainly doesn't absolve them from releasing a one-sentence statement, summing up their conclusions.

Were the counters right? Or did they find proof of fraud?



j/k, we all know they're dancing around the fact they have nothing.

Next, they'll all come down with Unobtainiumitis.

They're waiting for Mort Zucker to produce the comic book version. But he's dead. So, what the hell.

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Whoda thunk it? ~ LOL

What can be said that wasn't already predicted ~~ repeatedly?

We always knew they'd find a way to pull Trump's nutz out of the fire he started.

I am still of the opinion that this operation by the Cyber Ninjas was not about performing an audit.

I think it was more of a reconnaissance mission to find weaknesses in the election process and election hardware so that those weaknesses could be exploited by the GOP in the future. This seems to be in line with the experience of those performing this operation, auditing is not.

I don't know if I ever rolled my eyes faster at a headline before.

Yeah, sure they do.

A lot of this.

I'm hoping Anonymous is still strong and I assume at least a few of them are watching these traitors like a hawk.

Antiheros are nice.

I would assume that all of the pertinent information is on a computer somewhere that could be accessed by anyone permitted to do so, thus I don't care if they ipretend to have COVID or not the information should be made available to all the news media and to us. If they refuse to do so, we all know they are hiding the results and we know why. The expense of Cyber Ninjas probably profited them well but now, since they can't present the desired result, they have to pretend to be sick. I am laughing because this is sort of exactly what I expected.

Karma's a brutal mistress, I hope they get exactly what's coming to them these grifting, seditious POS! Here's hoping they spread it to seditious GQPers in the AZ Senate for a double shot of karma.

On a separate note, back when I was a kid I wanted to be cyber ninja when I grew up. But somehow the idea of cyber ninjas morphed into being gullible right wing Trump ------- liars. Kind of took the sheen out of the fantasy.

Very clearly a punishment from God and a message for all others who try to interfere with democracy.

Let's don't pretend that the comedic drama in Arizona is going to be the end of Trump's effort to subvert democracy. Sad to say, it's going to be a bumpy ride between now and 2024.

It gets interesting...

Ben Giles is a local Arizona reporter. for KJZZ in hoenix

...Ben Giles

Aug 23
Senate President @FannKfann says the full Cyber Ninjas report from the election review she ordered isn't ready yet because Doug Logan and other members of his team got COVID-19.

...Replying to @ben_giles and @FannKfann
Beyond Logan, it's unclear who the other members of the "five-person audit team" are.

I asked @BennettArizona , and he deferred to [AZ Senate President] @FannKfann. But he did say, "I thought there were nine."

Waiting for an answer from the Senate.

Replying to @ben_giles
Just heard from [AZ Senate President] @FannKfann , who says she also doesn't know: "His employees or contractors? They are the ones preparing the reports"

It seems that it is not known who, actually, is doing the audit or is it the report, just five, or maybe nine, people?

Old mob trick.
Cleveland mob boss Joey Bagadonuts faked heart attack right before indictments were coming his way.
Avoided court issues for a month.
Ninjas buying time.

The principals have basically been warned they'll be charged at the conclusion of the fraudit.

My guess is they're trying to quietly book passage out of the country.

Ya' gotta admit, there's some humor in the lengths these fraudsters will go in an effort to salvage another one of Trump's lost causes. Not to mention the negative affect it will have on a dozen other states who looked to Arizona as the impetus to join the voter fraud conspiracy.

The best laid plans of men and mice, etc., etc. etc.

LOL ~ Let the finger pointing begin.

How 'bout the ol' tried and true "Trump made us do it!"

Sounds like some expect the fraudit report to "find" something they can hang their seditionist hats on:

Michael Flynn with Patrick Byrne, on upcoming Maricopa fraudit report: "Maybe what we see is a flipping of the Electoral College, and a place we've never been before. If that's the case, and the outcome of the election was what we believe it is, then something needs to happen."

#20 | Posted by Gal_Tuesday at 2021-08-25 07:39 AM | Reply


And maybe Flynn and Byrne are just trying to keep the hopeful dancing on a string.

Chances are this delay is just a ploy while they look for a straw on which to hang their tattered reputations.

"Michael Flynn with Patrick Byrne, on upcoming Maricopa fraudit report:"

Micheal Flynn is a now pardoned criminal. Much like Oliver North. Patrick Byrnes is a crazy rich idiot. Much like the My Pillow Guy. But Patricks former company that he was the CEO of,, pushed him out because he had gone completely conspiracy crazy.

Take whatever they say with a grain of salt. And you better buy a lot of salt because they talk a lot and are both always completely full of crap.

Sooooooo if they die... do we have to start over?

#23 | Posted by RightisTrite at 2021-08-25 03:11 PM | Reply


My guess is that right now they'd like to ride off into the sunset and forget this whole thing ever happened. Everybody connected to this fiasco is getting their pants sued off.

Plus they also have to deal with Trump and he's not going to be a happy camper. This audit was supposed to be the domino that started a whole string of audits to prove he was really the winner.

Somebody should have told Cyber Ninjas that everything Trump touches dies.

Doesn't matter. It's going to be a joke whatever it is.

#25 | Posted by DarkVader at 2021-08-25 08:48 PM | Reply


The real joke is on the primary contributors who financed this fiasco:

Patrick Byrne (CEO of Overstock) . . . $3.2 Million
Gen. Michael Flynn (Americas Future) . . $976,000
Christine Bobbs (One America News) . . $605,000
Sidney Powell (Defending the Republic) . $550,000
Legal Defense Fund for American Republic
and Election Integrity Fund . . . . . $280,000

Not to mention a sundry of smaller groups who lost their shirt supporting The Big Lie.
