Mark Herring lead widens in state AG race

What was a 165-vote lead in the state attorney general race for Democrat Mark Herring has now grown to 866 votes. Are we getting past the point where Republican Mark Obenshain can still be thinking about a contest of the 2013 election?

mark herring“This enormous undertaking has been conducted with great diligence by local election officials and with careful monitoring by hundreds of volunteers from both parties,” said Marc Elias, lead counsel for the Herring campaign during the ongoing statewide recount. “It is our expectation that the recount court will take up this matter in the morning, begin the process of resolving ballot challenges, and ultimately declare Mark Herring the winner, for a third time in this historic race.”

The 701-vote gain for Herring came with 73 percent of state localities having completed their recounts.

A three-judge recount court is expected to put a wrap to the recount process by the end of the week.

    That’s nice – Herring is able to pad his margin of win in an election process that by the preponderance of evidence provided by fact and law is corrupted beyond even a shade of legitimacy.

    The uncontested evidence of McAuliffe & crew’s election fraud by means of their campaign’s 18USC1343 felony justifies a the award by the General Assembly of a do-over election under Va24.2-804.

    Also there is the vote integrity issue of a low-tech touch screen voting hack by the electrostatic capacitance discharge effect of ‘sticky fingered’ voters.

    By at least three counts of vote integrity corruption the G.A, should be called under Va24.2-804 by K.C, E.W.J. and M.O.to order a do-over election with candidates not disqualified under the preponderance of evidence of their 18USC1343 felony as seen under the rule of Va1-248 -> Va18.2-111-> Va18.2-481(5).

    Given that interlocking action of law McAuliffe and crew’s 18USC1343 felony could be advantageously pardoned by the Governor of Virginia under parole oath.
