AZ Audit Cyber Ninjas Report

2021-09-27

Executive Summary Overview

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The preamble to our Constitution reminds us that our nation is always pursuing greater perfection, seeking to establish “... a more perfect Union” so that we can “...secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” Nothing is more essential in preserving liberty than free and fair elections. To that end, Cyber Ninjas was engaged by the Arizona Senate to audit the 2020 General Election and determine in what areas legislative reform may enhance our current process so that our elections may continue to get better, becoming “more perfect.” In doing so, it was our goal to improve confidence in American elections by identifying areas where legislation could resolve any identified issues. This audit has been the most comprehensive and complex election audit ever conducted. It involved the hand counting of 2.1 million ballots, a forensic paper inspection of all ballots, a forensic review of the voting machines, and an in-depth analysis of the voter rolls and the 2020 General Election final files

What has been found is both encouraging and revealing. On the positive side there were no substantial differences between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official election canvass results for Maricopa County. This is an important finding because the paper ballots are the best evidence of voter intent and there is no reliable evidence that the paper ballots were altered to any material degree.

Based on our other findings, however, we recommend that the Legislature tighten up the election process to provide additional certainty going forward, and that several specific findings of our audit be further reviewed by the Arizona Attorney General for a possible investigation. Such other findings include the following:

  • None of the various systems related to elections had numbers that would balance and agree with each other. In some cases, these differences were significant.
  • There appears to be many 27, 807 ballots cast from individuals who had moved prior to the election.
  • Files were missing from the Election Management System (EMS) Server.
  • Ballot images 284,412 on the EMS were corrupt or missing.
  • Logs appeared to be intentionally rolled over, and all the data in the database related to the 2020 General

    Election had been fully cleared.

  • On the ballot side, batches were not always clearly delineated, duplicated ballots were missing the required serial numbers, originals were duplicated more than once, and the Auditors were never provided Chain-of- Custody documentation for the ballots for the time-period prior to the ballot’s movement into the Auditors’ care. This all increased the complexity and difficulty in properly auditing the results; and added ambiguity into the final conclusions.
  • Maricopa County failed to follow basic cyber security best practices and guidelines from CISA
  • Software and patch protocols were not followed
  • Credential management was flawed: unique usernames and passwords were not allocated
  • Lack of baseline for host and network activity for approved programs, communications protocols and communications devices for voting systems
  • Had Maricopa County chosen to cooperate with the audit, the majority of these obstacles would have easily been overcome. This did not stop the primary goal of offering recommendations for legislative reform to the Arizona Senate, but it did leave several questions open.

Dr. Frank's Opinion On Forensic Audit

Follow the Data with Dr Frank, [25.09.21 07:52] I’ve watched the Maricopa audit report a couple of times now, and read the hard copy reports. A couple of initial comments.

First, people who can’t operate something as simple as an audio visual presentation should not be expected to be able to manage and secure something as complicated as multiple integrated election systems. The situation is rife with opportunities for fraud.

We need to be voting Amish.

As Mike says, “We need to melt down the machines and make them into prison bars.”

Second, this was not a “full forensic audit.” The speakers themselves acknowledged this, because they were denied access to the most critical and vulnerable portions of the system.

Third, every piece of evidence presented confirms what we have been saying for months: the election systems are connected to the internet throughout the entire election process, signature verification is not robust, and the main hack is ballot stuffing enabled by manipulation of the voter rolls.

As I’ve said for months, analysis of the paper in the ballots themselves is the most circumstantial and least conclusive part of the audit, because there are too many variables, and insufficient controls. Perhaps worthwhile for completeness, but the rest of the audit is incomplete anyway.

Note that it took a forensic evaluation of the hard drives in the systems in order to confirm that the machines were connecting to the internet; just like we recommended to Tina Peters after meeting with her in person in Mesa County in April.

And again, I stress that although the work these folks have done is laudable and helpful, confirming that massive fraud has taken place, it will be insufficient to convince many in the public without the supporting canvassing work.

That is why this “partial audit” was permitted to proceed, while the canvassing efforts were curtailed.

If you want to help address this massive fraud, don’t wait for an official audit. You’ll likely end up right where we are today with this one. Instead, find the citizen groups in your vicinity and join their canvassing effort.

Imagine, if instead of yesterday’s report if someone showed up with a stack of 100,000 pages, where each page described a dead voter, or a voter who had moved away many years ago, or a person that did not exist, or a person who did not vote, but we have a ballot from them. Exposing 100,000 Maricopa phantom voters would be an open and shut case.

As it stands, people who already know the election was hacked will find plenty of supporting evidence in this report, but people who don’t want to accept that our elections are a mere illusion will find plenty of wiggle room.

I think both sides of this issue were not looking forward to this report. One side because the evidence confirms that massive fraud is occurring, the other side because it is likely to be insufficient to convince a gullible public.
