Katherine Harris applauds Iranian election results - declares process "free and fair."



Katherine Harris, the Former Republican Florida Secretary of State who rose to prominence during the notorious 2000 Florida Bush-Gore recount, has applauded the "re-election" of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Speaking from Tehran, where she had been brought in by the government to monitor the election process, Harris declared that the surprising and some say suspect 63% victory by the incumbent Ahmadinejad, was indeed proper and that the elections were conducted in a "free and fair" way.

Voting for change.

Ahmadinejad's main opponent Hossein Mousavi was widely expected to force the incumbent into a second-round runoff or even defeat him outright, spurred on by an progressive alliance of young voters, which reports suggest had turned out in droves. However, the authorities appear to have dampened that hope, with reports of fraud and other vote-rigging widespread. SMS text messaging, a key way that Mousavi had rallied voters, has been blocked by the authorities since Friday, while police are moving in to prevent any demonstrations by the oppostion. Commenting on the continued reports of vote-rigging and intimidation, Harris said "This is just sour grapes. The time has now come to move on."

  1. This Bush-complicit sycophantress doesn't know the meaning of "free and fair" since she aided and abetted the corruption of our own election in 2000. Frankly, I'm surprised that this woman is not being investigated for corrutpion and accessory to crime. The fact that she has the audacity to come forward and make a comment she knows nothing about now brings her complicity back into the limelight. Now perhaps we can open a full investigation into how she and Jeb Bush stole the 2000 election in Florida?

    I'd say that it's long overdue.

    **While we're at it, we can also begin to investigate the same corruption charges in Ohio in 2004 aided and abetted by R. Kenneth Blackwell, Ohio Secretary of State and Co-Chair Bush/Cheney '04.

  4. Is this a spoof? Ms Harris doesn't know shugar from shinola. If it's a real report, Ahmadinejad must have an incredibly fine-tuned sense of irony.

  5. All those middle eastern women are superhotties. That's why their men make them wear those veils - to keep other men from snatching them away.

  7. Iran Council certifies the victory and UN congratulates Ahmadinejad, despite massive opposition protests. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad keeps power but loses legitimacy. For the Iranian people, Keep hope alive, Hope begins in the Dark.
