Cyber Ninjas, overseeing a 2020 election ballot audit ordered by republicans in the Arizona Senate, is a 'ghost' company, where callers pressing the automated answering service response to talk to Human Resources are transferred to a recorded message from CEO Doug Logan. Want to talk to Purchasing? Again, you're connected to the same automated message from the CEO. Go ahead, try to reach any department and you get routed to the same recorded message from Logan.


Cyber Ninjas exists mostly in virtual reality, with its chief executive, Doug Logan, also serving as, well, pretty much everything.

On recent calls to the company's automated answer line, pressing "3" for sales led to the answering message for Logan. So did pressing "4" for human resources. And pressing "5" for purchasing. And "6" for the general mailbox. Go to the address for Cyber Ninjas' Legal Department, listed on its audit contract with the Arizona Senate, and you'll wind up at a rented mailbox in a UPS Store in Sarasota, Florida. The company's business address registered with Florida's Secretary of State, also in Sarasota, was sold last December, and now sits empty.


In April 2020, Cyber Ninjas received a Covid assistance loan for $98,322, saying in its application it then had five employees.

Within days of Trump's election loss, Logan was messaging Ron Watkins, the man believed to be "Q" or at least a key promulgator of the QAnon conspiracy theories that helped animate many of those who stormed the US Capitol on Jan. 6.

Logan's friends, speaking in support, say, "He's a lovely person. He's just nuts now."

Huh.
