The Maricopa County Elections Department released a report on Wednesday slamming the audit commissioned by the state’s GOP-led Senate, writing that it contained “faulty analysis” and “inaccurate claims.”

“After an in-depth analysis and review of the reports and presentations issued by the Senate’s contractors, we determined that nearly every finding included faulty analysis, inaccurate claims, misleading conclusions, and a lack of understanding of federal and state election laws,” the report reads.

All eyes were on Maricopa County in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, where Arizona’s GOP-controlled Senate ordered an audit of the results amid former President Trump’s crusade against the vote tally.

The report, which was compiled by the Florida-based firm Cyber Ninjas, ultimately confirmed President Biden’s win in Maricopa County, even finding that the Democrat won by a larger margin than the final certified results showed.

The audit also made a number of recommendations for changes to Arizona’s election law.
