Cyber Ninjas, the company hired to lead a Republican-ordered review of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results, said it was shutting down, citing mounting legal costs and debt among other factors.
Previously a little-known cybersecurity firm, Cyber Ninjas became a central figure in an unusual review of the 2020 presidential results after Democrat Joe Biden won in Arizona’s most populous county. The state’s Republican-controlled Senate ordered the review and hired Florida-based Cyber Ninjas to lead the process, even though Maricopa County officials had already conducted other audits that found no problems with the county’s voting system.
The Cyber Ninjas’ report ultimately confirmed Biden’s win in Maricopa County.
Rod Thomson, a spokesman for Cyber Ninjas, said the company was shutting down for multiple reasons, including having $2 million in debt. The firm previously said it had accepted millions of dollars in private donations from supporters of the audit.
