Well, the voters don't know. And Braun hasn't had any significant increase in offensive numbers. If he did do it, it didn't give him that much more of an advantage than he already had.
The process has to play out though. David Ortiz made that NY Times list, claimed he never (knowingly) did it, and everyone stopped caring since he never failed a test.
