Mexico's Algore

Enemy Press Reuters reports that the conservative candidate, Felipe Calderon, appears to be winning the Mexican presidential election over Chavezite Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. "Mexico's conservative presidential candidate Felipe Calderon declared victory on Monday in a bitterly contested election and official returns appeared to show his leftist rival could no longer catch him. Calderon had a lead of almost 400,000 votes over Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador with returns in from almost 98 percent of polling stations and a senior election official said it was unlikely to change with a recount ordered for later this week."

But as seen here in America..."Lopez Obrador supporters, remembering a 1988 presidential election widely believed to have been stolen from left-wing candidate Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, claimed foul play. 'It's always the same. It happened in '88 when they robbed Cardenas. Hopefully there's no such repeat but if there's fraud the people will look for explanations on the street,' said Francisco Grimaldo, 68, in Mexico City's vast main square." Yup, same old same old from the freedom hating leftists. Cry and claim cheating when you can't win an election. What is the Spanish word for "Chad" anyway?
