Arizona Senate President Karen Fann on Tuesday said that the 2020 presidential election audit's ballot count led by Cyber Ninjas differed from the Maricopa County tally, and that the discrepancy prompted the election review team to acquire new machines to recount the ballots.
"They haven't released a number yet," Fann, a Republican, said during in an interview with KTAR.
"However, we do know that those numbers do not match with Maricopa County at this point."
The Arizona Senate Democratic Caucus has pushed back against Fann's remarks, saying in a Twitter post, "This is a lie." The Epoch Times has reached out for additional comment.
According to Maricopa County's official canvass (pdf), there were 2,089,563 ballots cast in its 2020 general election.
