The CEO of Cyber Ninjas, the company hired by the Arizona Republican state senate president Karen Fann to "audit" the 2020 election has hit yet another snag: COVID.

On Monday the company was supposed to release its audit findings, which some, including some members of Congress, have taken to call a "fraudit."

The Arizona Senate Republicans late Monday afternoon released a statement saying, "unfortunately, Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan and two other members of the five-person audit team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are quite sick."

That has been far from the only snag, as the statement details:

The methods used have caused the state's attorney general to demand all voting machines "audited" be replaced, due to concerns they may have been compromised, which will cost $2.8 million. Maricopa County is demanding the state senate foot the bill, per a signed agreement.
