Except those who were successful in the disputed election.  I do appreciate
the desire to reduce the intense feelings this matter has caused, but if
people have been elected for two years then I think it is thoroughly
undemocratic to unseat them in mid stride just because someone who lost the
election complains.  Is this not similar to what we endured during recall?
The right lost the election and went public in an attempt to force another
election.  I seem to remember that we all thought that was a pretty low
blow.  So how would this differ?

With that I do agree.  Any method must be acceptable to everyone to be
workable, and that includes those who fundamentally disagree that the
elections were rigged or distorted in some way.
