Ben Cotton and his team were selected by the Cyber Ninjas to address specifically the IT work related to Maricopa County’s results in the 2020 election.
Although investigator Cotton is doing his due diligence to make sure the IT processes were above board its been a difficult task for many of the auditors because Maricopa County has been completely uncooperative. Even when it comes to basic questions many times referring auditors to lawyers. Which begs the question why are they trying to stop the truth; especially if there is nothing to hide?
One of the shocking finds is the mistruths; Maricopa repeatedly told the public the election system did not touch the internet. If that is true the system could not have linked with other Maricopa County departments data. To prevent the release of router information, the Board of Supervisors and Sheriff then said election router data DID mingle with critical information from other county departments. By using EAC auditors, Maricopa told the public election machines were safe and secure. They now say those same auditors can’t be hired to test the same machines, and now they have approved the purchase of new Dominion machines at a cost to the taxpayers of $3 million.
