Without going into detail on the quality of this audit -- GP was not impressed, but I am not willing to criticize in such strong terms without a closer look -- it seems to me that a problem which potentially invalidates 72% of ballots should invalidate the election and result in a ban on the responsible machines from being used in the future.
I am particularly unimpressed with the explicit refusal to consider the effect of any errors on the Presidential race, and the claim that "no malware was found" on the machines does not convince me as something that was properly investigated.
I do support following up this audit with a comprehensive audit of all ballots, including the Presidential race. Do a full hand recount of every ballot, and determine if there are discrepancies between ballots that point to illegal ballots being inserted.
It doesn't hurt to check.
