    More than a technical recount of a corrupted process is well justified by fact and law.

    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.toorder 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).

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