Fraud in Iran

The Interior Ministry in Iran has announced that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has won the Presidential Election by garnering a whopping 62.6 percent of the vote.

Andrew Sullivan posts an interesting graph that is a compelling piece of evidence that the vote was fraudulent.  The best piece of evidence remains the complete lack of transparency of the Iranian election process.

The good news is that Iranians are taking to the streets in protest.  Let’s hope for the best for the people who are standing up to Iran’s theocrats.

    It certainly appears that Ahmedinijad did exactly what all tin horn dictators do: stole an election with an impossibly high margin of victory. Fraud was indeed perpetrated on the Iranian people. Let’s see how big and broad the popular uprising gets. Either it will be brutally surpressed in a style reminiscent of the Shah or Tieneman Square, or the crooked bastard will be deposed and the more moderate government will take his place. Of course, all real power lies in the hands of the clergy, but if the uprisings are strong enough even they will be forced to give ground. The next week will be VERY interesting!

    It certainly appears that this election was stolen. The results the government put out seem impossible. I, too, wonder what will happen, and worry about the Iranian people who appeared to want change.

    We now have another reason to be disgusted with Ahmadinejad and despise the mullahocracy who pull his strings.

    If they have such a low opinion of the Iranian people, I believe the people will soon give their answer once they organize. I believe the Iranians have had enough.

    We shall soon see.
