PHOENIX — The attorneys of Doug Logan, the founder and former CEO of Cyber Ninjas, are turning over 1,062 pages of records to the Arizona Senate, according to nonprofit watchdog group American Oversight.

Cyber Ninjas, the contractor that led the 2020 election review for Arizona republicans, was held in contempt by a judge for its failure to turn over documents in January and was ordered to pay $50,000 per day.

It continued to withhold records, and after several months, the contractor’s fine total hit $4.2 million by Friday’s report, according Jeremy Duda of Axios.

American Oversight sued the Arizona Senate in May 2021 for the release of public records.

“The records Logan says he is delivering to the Senate include files related to the subcontractors that Cyber Ninjas worked with to conduct Arizona’s sham ‘audit,’ including WakeTSI, CyFir, and election conspiracy promoters Jovan Hutton Pulitzer and Dr. Shiva,” American Oversight tweeted on Friday.

Maricopa County Superior Court judge John Hannah set the daily fines, saying at the time millions of dollars were donated to Cyber Ninjas and the company did not present evidence of insolvency.

Logan reported that Cyber Ninjas laid off its employees and shut down in January.

The Maricopa County Elections Department released a report in January, which stated that the 2020 General Election was administered with integrity and provided accurate results.

The county found 22 claims by Cyber Ninjas misleading, 41 inaccurate and 13 false, while saying, “The report produced by Senate contractor, Cyber Ninjas, inaccurately challenges the legitimacy of thousands of voters who participated in the November 2020 General Election …”

American Oversight tweeted it will be monitoring closely for the documents to be released.
