Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan Revealed as 'Anon' in 'Deep Rig' Election Conspiracy Film

The head of the Florida-based firm chosen to conduct an election audit of Arizona's largest county was revealed as "Anon," of QAnon notoriety.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan was confirmed as the voice behind "Anon" in the election conspiracy theory film The Deep Rig. Logan's ties to the far-right, baseless theories come after his firm was chosen by Arizona's GOP state lawmakers to conduct a review of the 2020 presidential election results on behalf of former President Donald Trump. The Deep Rig film is directed by a man whose previous movies included a documentary that claimed aliens masterminded the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Numerous online conspiracy theorist websites and popular QAnon forums had previously speculated that Logan, who is now set to lead Arizona's self-audit, had deep ties to the "leadership" of the loose-knit group.

The major focus of The Deep Rig election conspiracy film is Patrick Byrne, former Overstock.com CEO and longtime Trump supporter. The film is based on a book written by Byrne, who is also the head of a 501(c)(4) that hopes to raise the $2.8 million needed to fund Arizona's Republican-led election audit.

Numerous state GOP officials—including former Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who was tapped by Senate President Karen Fann to lead the "forensic audit— have denied any knowledge of QAnon ties and have been unable to put forth any evidence of potential voter fraud in 2020, the Arizona Mirror reported over the weekend.

"If we don't fix our election integrity now, we may no longer have a democracy," Logan says in the Rig film. He goes on to claim that current and former members of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were involved with a "disinformation" campaign directed at the 2020 presidential election.

Logan did not provide a single anecdote or piece of evidence to back up his increasingly bizarre claims.

The Arizona Mirror's Jerod MacDonald-Evoy reported Saturday that Bennett "did not know" if anyone involved in the audit participated in The Deep Rig film production.

Another attendee of a recent Phoenix event promoting the film, Austin Steinbart, is sometimes referred to in the QAnon community as "Baby Q." Some members of the far-right conspiracy theorist group believe Steinbart is, in fact, "Q" himself. Steinbart has been hosting screenings that cost $500 per attendee and all of that money is believed to be going toward funding Arizona's election audit.

Newsweek reached out to several Arizona GOP state lawmakers and Logan for comment.
