Don't forget that the no-show paradox is closely related to (in fact is 
an aspect of) the consistency problem. If B is elected, but removing a 
handful of A supporters (say, by disqualifying their ballots) would 
cause A to be elected, can that be a good thing, generally speaking?
D- This is getting stranger and stranger.

An election is based on the valid ballots cast and legally counted (by the 
election method being used) --- nothing more and nothing less.  

Nothing new since the first election -- in what year (500 B.C. ???)  ???

A disqualified ballot is not a ballot (or anything else).  B's initial 
apparent win was illegal.
