In a sense it will be a relief if the whole mess of challenged ballots can be simply dispelled with the eventuality of Russell winning by simple math. It would be unfortunate if many well-intentioned folks lost money in a lawsuit for a worthy cause, fighting for an unworthy candidate.

I disagree. I would hope this issue of challenging voters because of their seasonal residency should be resolved once and for all in federal court. The Cape and Jefferson County cannot continue to be threatened in the future by those who believe they have special voting rights attached to their diapers hanging on local clothes line. Constitution says nothing about worthiness in a candidate, that's for the voters to decide.
