Because ballot chain of custody has been broken, I don't know if we can say for sure that anyone in a close race has won fair and square. I assume that cuts both ways because humans will cheat at almost anything (everything really).

I realize that is a fringe/edge position but will cite Kurt Vonnegut here: "I want to stay as close on the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. ... Big, undreamed-of things — the people on the edge see them first." The corollary to this would be: The person who lives on the edge must be well centered.

The cynical steve (humans will cheat at everything), may not be well centered, but from out here on the edge, it sure looks like that by breaking chain of custody, cheating is being enabled, if not encouraged
