Mexican Electoral Fraud Wins

Felipe Calderón is President Elect.

"...Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land
Where justice is a game.
Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties
Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise..."

Mexican general election 2006 controversies

Wikipedia Current event

The results of the Mexican general election of July 2, 2006, were controversial and contested. According to Mexico's Federal Electoral Institute (IFE), the initial "Quick Count" was too close to call and when the "Official Count" was complete, Felipe Calderón of the conservative National Action Party (PAN) had won by a difference of 243,934 votes (or 0.58%). The runner-up, Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the left-of-center Alliance for the Good of All (PRD, PT, Convergence), immediately challenged the results and has led massive marches, protests, and acts of civil disobedience in Mexico City. On August 9, while protests continued to expand, a partial recount was undertaken by election officials after being ordered to do so by the country's Federal Electoral Court (TEPJF); the court found "sufficient evidence of reported irregularities at about nine per cent of the polling stations."[1]
Nevertheless, the same court, after having made a partial recount, decided that the election was fair and ruled that Felipe Calderón is President Elect.

Mexican Electoral Fraud Wins

It was no surprise on that the partial recount of about a "Cherrypicked" 9% of the ballots cast in the disputed presidential election held on July 2 showed ruling National Action Party (PAN) candidate still the winner.

The Mexico's Supreme Electoral Tribunal (aka "Trife") ignored the need for a total ballot recount demanded and instead relied on the small partial one it chose in areas of known Calderon strength making it unlikely from the start it would find enough of a change in the final tally to change the election result. Lopez Obrador aides cited evidence of overwhelming fraud in at least one-third of the polling stations.

So TRIFE invented a "decision" ignoring the juggernaut of facts, audio and video evidence, and public outrage. It shows Trife illegitimate, corrupt, and partisan as well.
