Transparency arrives for Arizona Cyber Ninjas election audit

The Arizona Senate is preparing to turn over records from contractors working on the audit of the 2020 presidential election. The Senate refused to release the documents after losing in lower courts but caved in after the Arizona Supreme Court ruled against them. (Arizona Republic, September 15, 2021, by Ryan Randazzo)

The U.S. Department of Justice sent a letter last May to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann informing her that providing ballots to a private contractor could be a violation of federal law that ballots remain in possession of election officials for 22 months after the election. The letter said the audit lacked transparency required by law. (Esquire, May 6, 2021, by Charles P. Pierce)
