Arizona Senate urges audit firm Cyber Ninja to publicize 2020 Election audit records

Published

on

Cyber Ninjas, the primary contractor tasked with conducting the audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, was ordered by the Arizona Senate to make public the record linked to the controversial elections. This was announced by  Senate President Karen Fann.

“Pursuant to the Arizona Public Records Act, Sections 15.4 and 18.5 of our Master Services Agreement dated March 31, 2021, and the orders entered by Judges Kemp and Hannah in American Oversight v. Fann and Phoenix Newspapers, Inc. v. Arizona State Senate, please immediately make available to the Arizona State Senate all records within your custody or control, or within the custody or control of your subcontractors or other agents, with a substantial nexus to the audit,” Fann wrote to Cyber Ninjas.

“For the avoidance of doubt, documents with a substantial nexus to the audit include without limitation all documents and communications relating to the planning and performance or execution of the audit, all policies and procedures used in connection with the audit, all records concerning audit funding or staffing, and all records that are reasonably necessary or appropriate to maintain an accurate knowledge of activities concerning the 2020 Maricopa County election audit,” she added.

Attorneys who appeared for the Senate had previously argued that the documents that included information about donors who funded the audit do not fall under public disclosure rules since Cyber Ninjas, which is privately owned, is in possession of the documents along with some of the other subcontractors.

Officials linked to the audit team said a full draft report on its findings was expected to be filed with e Senate this week – barring for some delays due to unforeseen circumstances.

Maricopa County has been defended for months by state and local officials of both parties from charges placed by the former US President Donald Trump and sympathetic Republicans that its election results were fraudulent.

a call for the review of “adventure in never-never land” as given in August by Republican Maricopa Supervisor Jack Sellers. However, the effort has been described as a ” political stunt” by  Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

Cyber Ninjas is now more under pressure as more groups such as the Left-leaning watchdog group American Oversight and the Phoenix-based Arizona Republic that have filed the same motion to democratize the access for such records.

On the Caspian shore of Russia, thousands of dead seals have washed up

Published

on

Russian authorities inspected the coastline.

Officials announced on Sunday that over 2,500 dead seals had been discovered near the Caspian Sea coast of Russia.

Authorities in the Russian province of Dagestan stated that the cause of the shocking mass deaths was unknown and that they believed it was probably due to natural causes.

The number of dead seals discovered off the coast on Saturday initially appeared to be 700, but later rose to 2,500, according to the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

The Caspian Environmental Protection Center’s Zaur Gapizov stated in a statement that the seals had probably been dead for a few weeks. He claimed that there was no evidence that they had been killed or caught in fishing nets.

The dead seals were thought to have perished due to natural causes.

According to a statement posted on the Telegram messaging app by the Dagestan natural resources ministry, samples taken from the seals’ internal organs did not contain any traces of pollution.

A North Caucasus fisheries official was quoted by the business newspaper Kommersant as suggesting that the seals may have perished due to protracted storms, although the news website Fontanka.ru suggested that the mass deaths may have been brought on by a natural gas leak from the sea’s abundant resources.

The Dagestan ministry stated after this incident that there was still a stable number of Caspian seals in the region, “ranging from 270,000 to 300,000.”

According to RIA, the seals are at the top of the food chain and have no natural enemies as adults. They can grow to a length of more than 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) and a weight of up to 100 kilogrammes (200 pounds).

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

Police stated that they had apprehended the fugitive suspected of fatally murdering an elderly Massachusetts couple during a dispute about a noisy dog in Florida.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office reported that Christopher Keeley, 27, was apprehended Thursday at 8:20 p.m. in Miami Beach, approximately 1,500 miles from the Marshfield home where he is accused of beating Carl and Vicki Mattson, both 70, to death.

The couple and Keeley allegedly got into a fight about a barking dog, according to the police.

According to court documents obtained by CBS, the alleged brute had been staying in the Mattson’s Gotham Hill Drive house as a courtesy to a family member but had just been ordered to leave.

According to Keeley’s arrest on a warrant as an out-of-state fugitive, Miami-Dade County jail records show this. It was unclear at first if Keeley had hired a lawyer.

 

Massachusetts couple

 

Questions were not immediately answered by representatives of the Massachusetts State Police and the Miami-Dade Police Department. It was impossible to speak with a district attorney’s office representative for Plymouth County right away.

A dog that had been reported missing earlier was also discovered dead inside the home, according to the DA. It’s unclear to whom the dog belonged or how it passed away.

This would not be the first time Keeley had turned to murder after a dispute.

In a dispute over a phone charger when he was 18 years old, Keeley broke his grandmother’s vehicle window, according to The Patriot Ledger. He was accused of intentionally causing damage to a vehicle.

According to Keeley, he attacked the couple after a dispute about a barking dog.

At least two further significant run-ins with the law involved Keeley. According to the publication, he was detained in 2016 at the age of 21 for organising and carrying out a group beating of a man with autism before snatching his cellphone and wallet. According to reports, a court in Massachusetts deemed Keeley “to be dangerous,” and he was subsequently given an 18-month prison term.

Keeley was recently charged with narcotics possession after it was claimed that he was found driving about with marijuana and Xanax. According to court documents obtained by The Ledger, he was charged with drug offences.
