Lopez Obrador deserves recount in corrupt Mexican election
Brave reporter Al Giordano of www.NarcoNews.com, has reported that Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador really won the corrupt Mexican election, said to have been won by neo-lib puppet Felipe Calderon.
Writes Giordano: A Narco News investigation has found that in the small sample of precincts – less than one percent – where a recount was allowed, the shift in numbers away from Calderón was so drastic that, if recounts of all the ballots followed the same trend, the official results would invert and Andrés Manuel López Obrador would become the clear winner of the presidency by more than one million votes.
For authentic journalists, Mexico’s post-electoral conflict is one of those gigantic news stories that happens few times in the course of a lifetime: Not merely a story about how a state-of-the-art electoral fraud was perpetrated in a major country of 100 million people, but, more historically, the story of how that fraud will be laid to waste.
This doesn't come as much of a shock to me. I suspected they would say Calderon won. I'm sure the CIA was somehow involved in this situation. They usually are. They don't want the Mexican equivalent of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.
