There's no need for Laz to stay. It's over. It took him the full 24 hours to achieve what he needs every day. It's over. Any message from the RV contrary to this is a lie. It's over.
I guess it depends on what you want to have happen. Nobody who lies and cheats for such a prolonged period of time in such an epic fraud just gives it up. People don't change. With nobody watching, he will miraculously recover from his "bad patch" (every runner has them, don't you know) and will at least finish if not set a record.
The only thing this did was confirm for everyone who already knew he was cheating that he was cheating. His followers were convinced of nothing. And who is he appealing to? It's not the people who know better. With Laz gone it will be business as usual.
The thing about the shameless is that they are shameless. Lies that would embarrass a normal person role off their tongue so much easier than the truth. This embarrassing shIt show will go on. All he's done is shamefully outlasted people who could no longer stand watching his shame.
