Not Larry Sabato broke this story earlier today, but here’s a press release from the Fairfax County Democratic Committee:

Fairfax Judges Put Voters First
Hans von Spakovsky not reappointed to Electoral Board

FALLS CHURCH – Today the judges of the Fairfax County Circuit Court took a major step forward in protecting the rights of citizens of Fairfax County to vote.

“I applaud the decision of the Fairfax County Circuit Court judges in declining to reappoint Hans von Spakovsky to the County Electoral Board,” said Cesar del Aguila, Chair of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee. “By their action they have put the rights of the voters of Fairfax County to a fair and impartial administration of our election first. Von Spakovsky is a well-known national advocate for voter suppression efforts and a promoter of fictitious voter fraud fears. Without von Spakovsky, who was recommended for a second term by the Fairfax County Republican Party, our Electoral Board can return to acting on a bi-partisan basis to protect the rights of all citizens of Fairfax County to vote.”
