Sen. McEachin comes on around 6 minutes into this video, although there’s good background by Rachel Maddow before that as well. Sen. McEachin’s main points: 1) there’s been no response – “crickets” – to McEachin’s demand that Cuccinelli stop fundraising for Mark Obenshain’s recount effort; 2) that Cuccinelli should avoid the appearance of impropriety and stop giving advice to the State Board of Elections while fundraising for one of the candidates (Obenshain) in an election heading towards a recount; 3) that this is hurting Virginians’ faith in the integrity of the electoral process; 4) Cuccinelli should have stepped down as AG when he ran for Governor; and 5) we’ll never know how the pre-election voter purge of around 60,000 Virginians impacted this election.
