A challenge has been filed in the recount of the attorney general contest. Republican Mark Obenshain (pictured), who’s 165 votes behind Democrat Mark Herring in the latest count, has filed a motion for what he claims is a security problem in Fairfax County. Obenshain says state law requires counted and unused ballots to be taken to the clerk no later than the day after the election. Obenshain’s motion says election materials in Fairfax were unprotected by mandated security measures for nearly a month after the election. He also says certifications from some other localities have not come in yet, even though they were due December 6th. Obenshain’s campaign says that makes it impossible to determine if there might have been security problems elsewhere in the state.
