AMLO WINS MEXICAN ELECTION BY ONE MILLION VOTES. NEO-LIBERAL CABAL STEALS ELECTION. 400,000 PROTESTORS IN THE ZOCALO
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's lawyers plan to present what they say is evidence of fraud to the nation's highest electoral court Sunday, a day after the candidate urged his supporters not to lose hope at a massive gathering in Mexico City's historic center.
The legal appeals won't seek to annul the July 2 election. Instead, Lopez Obrador wants to force authorities to conduct a vote-by-vote manual recount, claiming computer manipulation of the result.
Guanajuato as Florida
The north-central Mexican state of Guanajuato – home turf of President Vicente Fox and an importantísimo electoral base for his and Calderón’s PAN party – is where official results from the state’s 6,122 precincts (less than five percent of the national vote) gave Calderón a margin of more than 700,000 votes. That is to say, even according the highly suspicious official results, López Obrador won the rest of the country by almost half a million votes. This was a state where electoral fraud was carried out – and continues to be covered up – on a systematic basis.
