International Observers From The Ukraine Cite
Examples Of Voting Fraud – In The United States
A delegation of
international election observers from the Ukraine harshly
criticized the recent U.S. electoral process, with one
saying, ''It reminds me of the worst examples of suppression
and dirty tricks under the former Soviet regimes.''
delegation outlined a long list of alleged instances of
fraud and questionable actions that occurred before and
during the Nov. 2 election. Among those was Ohio Secretary
of State Kenneth Blackwell, the co-chairman of Bush’s
campaign in Ohio, deciding to only put two ballot machines
per 100,000 voters in urban, Democratic-strong precincts and
two machines per 10 voters in rural and suburban
"This was a blatant attempt
to make voters for Mr. Kerry stand in long lines and leave
without voting," said Yuri Yusogotcha, head of the Ukrainian
delegation. "Our government does this in the Ukraine, too,
especially when we run short of food.”
In addition, the
delegation noted that Blackwell made a “curious comment”
about Katherine Harris, the former Florida secretary of
state who presided over the 2000 recount again as a co-chair
of Bush’s campaign, being rewarded with a good position now
in Congress. "As they say in your American streets, what up
wit dat?" Yusogotcha asked.
The Ukrainians’ list also
included complaints of people casting votes for Kerry only
to have them show up as votes for Bush when they checked the
electronic ballots, computer source codes on systems
controlled by partisan Republicans with suspicious lines
that automatically added votes for Bush and subtracted votes
for Kerry, strange machine malfunctions and a lack of
ballots in strong Democratic precincts and other ills.
"The exit polls that day pointed to a big win by Mr.
Kerry," Yusogotcha said. "Yet, a sudden rush of ‘moral’
voters was said by your media to make the difference for
Bush. Where were these ‘moral’ voters when your country was
lying about its reasons for invading Iraq, taking over its
oil and furthering certain people’s dreams of an empire? The
world has not seen that many ‘moral’ American voters
The Ukrainians also observed Republican
volunteers throwing bloody chicken parts on the front
porches of Democrats’ homes in Maryland, slashing the tires
of vans the NAACP planned to use to drive people to the
polls in Wisconsin, distributing fliers that wrongly warned
voters that they could be arrested at the polls if they had
an unpaid parking ticket or overdue library book, and
harassing Democratic voters at the polls by challenging
their registration status.
Other dirty tricks included
city water departments in Ohio turning off the water of
African Americans on election day and telling them they had
to stay home to wait for a repairman so they would not vote,
intimidation by police and state troopers in Florida of
African Americans who were harassed about their voting
status, mostly African Americans being cut off voting lists
in Florida just because they had the same name as a felon,
calls made to mostly African Americans in Florida telling
them their precinct’s location had changed and directing
them to the wrong precinct and police giving mostly
Democratic voters parking tickets even though their cars
were legally parked in Ohio.
"It seems the American
Republican Party has a lot in common with the German Nazi
Party of the 1930s," Yusogotcha said. "Not just these dirty
tactics and fixing of elections, but its use of religion,
propaganda, invasion of other countries, organized camps
that hold prisoners without being charged, torture policies
and so on. The Republican Party has found new ways to
suppress the votes of African Americans and other minority
At his ranch in Texas, Bush, who was on his 22nd
consecutive day of vacation following the "election," spoke
briefly to reporters. "We have put our antennas out," Bush
said, sipping on a large mug of beer, then placing both
hands with raised index fingers on the top of his head to
signify a strange version of an antenna. "We are deeply
disturbed about the fraud reports we hear from Utah."
aide then whispered in Bush’s ear, and he looked up with a
smirk, "I mean, the Ukraine. That’s near Utah, right?" Bush
whacked the aide on his back.
A journalist interrupted to
say, "Uh, no, Mr. President, the Ukraine is HALFWAY AROUND
THE FREAKING WORLD from Utah. Anyway, the matter at hand was
about fraud reports in the U.S. What do you make of these
reports of voting fraud right here in our country?"
squinted hard at the reporter and replied, "Go ahead, punk,
make my day!"
The journalist retorted, "What the hell do
you mean, Mr. President?"
Bush then shrugged. "Beats me.
I never know what’s going to come out of my mouth.
Especially lately when I’ve been hitting the sauce and some
really mind-expanding pills my doctors gives me."
Meanwhile, in the Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of
people protested some alleged voting fraud in a recent
election, which was observed by Republican Senator Dick
Lugar of Indiana, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee. The protests were encouraged by the Ukainian
opposition leader, who was ahead in exit polls, unlike the
response from Kerry, who also was ahead in exit polls but
quickly conceded the election to Bush and urged Americans to
unite behind Bush. Kerry conceded because he was reportedly
concerned about his image, about being the butt of jokes on
national talk shows like Leno’s and Letterman’s, not about
doing what he said he was going to do to fight for a fair
"This is what a democracy should be like,"
Lugar said. "When there is voting fraud, people should get
off their butts and their couches and protest like they did
in the Boston Tea Party. They shouldn’t just, say, go
shopping or watch reruns of Seinfeld when there is fraud, as
they now do in my country."
Lugar added that the
Ukrainian election was fraudulent because “exit polls showed
the guy we wanted to win should have won.” After being asked
why he did not support “the guy who was ahead in the exit
polls in the U.S. election,” Lugar retorted, “Because our
candidate was the one who was behind. What do you take us
After being told of Lugar’s comments,
Yusogotcha replied, “Who is this Dick Lugar? Is he one of
your American porn stars? And why is he worried about voting
fraud in my country and not his own country?”
