Certified Honduran Referendum Results Found

Criminal investigators in Honduras have reportedly found computers containing the certified election results of the referendum which was to confirm Mel Zelaya as president for…however long he wanted to be president, I guess.  Anyway, the certified results contained voting tallies, information about the voters, and other electoral information.  An example:

One of the district attorneys that participated in the operation that took place this Friday showed reporters an official voting result from the Technical Institute Luis Bogran, of Tegucigalpa, in which the specific number of people that participated in table 345, where there were 550 ballots, 450 of which were votes in favor of Zelaya’s proposal and 30 were against, in addition to 20 blank ballots and 30 ballots, which were nullified.

That’s a very complete report of the election, and contains a wealth of details about the results that would be a credit to the authorities in charge of any election.

Of course, it would be even more impressive if the referendum had actually taken place.

There was no referendum.  It was aborted by the legal, constitutional removal of Mr. Zelaya from power.

And yet, in the presidential palace’s computer, Mr. Zelaya apparently had a complete, certified result of an election that never took place.

If the Honduran authorities are to be believed, the evidence is that he had already completed a plan to steal the election, and the only remaining act to be performed was to conduct a sham referendum, whose results had already been determined.

Yet, this is the guy that the Obama Administration and the OAS thinks should be the legitimate leader of Honduras.

  • Heck, O! has ACORN taking notes…..

  • Taking notes?
    The Left already has the drill down pat in MN. All they have to do is repeat it everywhere there’s a close race.

  • Yes, the election was a staged hoax. And it would have been a lot more than the “opinion poll” Zelaya touts to the world. Zelaya is not super bright. He was just following the same script Chavez used in Venezuela.

  • This should be a major headline on every news service in the world.  From the comments in the referenced article I saw it had a very brief mention on USA Today.  Other than that, I haven’t even seen it on Drudge!
    I imagine, though, it might make some rulers in certain Latin American countries very nervous if it got out this sort of thing is done.
    If this is verified, I wonder what Obama and his apologists will have to say?

  • “I don’t care who votes so long as I get to count the ballots.”

  • The irony its things like US support of Zelaya that make countries leary and critical of US intervention.  However those same countries will still love Obama and Democrats.

  • Obvious forgeries, just like THEY framed Alger Hiss!
    The CIA did it!!
    Free Mumia!!

    UN Ignores Honduras Coup Leaders

    United Nations – The United Nations Security Council tossed aside a letter by Honduras coup leaders in which they requested its intervention after alleged threats and provocation by Venezuela.

    UN diplomats told Prensa Latina that the letter has not received any attention, and it will not be distributed as an official document.

    That decision was made by Ugandan Ambassador Ruhakana Rugunda, who received the document Thursday as Security Council chairman.

    “The Security Council only receives correspondence from governments and organizations that it recognizes”, the consulted diplomatic officials highlighted.

    The letter is signed by Honduras de facto foreign minister Carlos López Contreras, who accuses Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez of plotting to invade the Central American nation.

    He also claimed that the jet with Venezuelan registration in which Honduran constitutional President Manuel Zelaya tried to return to Honduras on July 5 had violated Honduras airspace.

    The UN Security Council considers the de facto government in Honduras illegal, after the UN General Assembly passed a resolution condemning the June 28 coup.

    It has also called upon the UN 192 members not to recognize other government than Zelaya’s.
    See what we’re up against?

  • The United Nations Security Council tossed aside a letter by Honduras coup leaders in which they requested its intervention after alleged threats and provocation by Venezuela.

    Further evidence, as if any were needed, of just how f*cking worthless the UN is.  For that matter, many international organizations are equally worthless.  President Washington was more right than he knew when he warned against foreign entanglements.

  • Uh…… it was a test run of the system to make sure everything was working for the referendum!
    And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING.
