Ok Quo Warranto - the article is bit misleading.
NOT Quo Warranto!
See the yellow text highlighted at the link to the statute in the article:
DIVISION I. GOVERNMENT OF DISTRICT
TITLE 1. GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION
CHAPTER 10. ELECTIONS
SUBCHAPTER I. REGULATION OF ELECTIONS
GO TO DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CODE ARCHIVE DIRECTORY
D.C. Code § 1-1001.11 (2012)
§ 1-1001.11. Recount; judicial review of election [Formerly § 1-1314]
Looks like the DC election code might have been modified in 2012!
