Evidence of fraud

The scanning and uploading of image files — as well as spreadsheets summarizing the stastistics — that document the “errors” in the results in the presidential election is in progress. These are the documents that back up the claim of recount López Obrador’s coalition submitted to the TRIFE, the federal electoral court. Again, the information online — massive already — is only a portion of the total. Gradually, the entire set of documents will be online:

    There is not a “Trife”. The federal court you are talking about is the Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación or TEPJF. If you can’t get this simple fact straight, how trustworthy is the rest of your information?

    For those looking for the REAL data, not the doctored one, I’d suggest you to visit the official website of the federal electoral authority: http://www.ife.org.mx

    Don’t allow others to fool you by accepting their propaganda. Go to the source and get an opinion by yourself.

    The Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación is also known as TRIFE. So much so that this is their link:

    http://www.trife.gob.mx/

    The press in Mexico frequently use the acronym. It is a valid acronym, as can be verified by googling the word “trife” or “trife + mexico.” So I’ll stick to TRIFE, thank you.

    As for the IFE, it has given enough reasons for the public to be wary of what you call the “REAL” data. That’s why each vote, polling place by polling place, should be recounted.

    And let me say, in case it is not immediately apparent, that I’m intensely partisan. How can we not be partisan in a society as split socially as Mexico’s?

    It’s obvious that I support López Obrador. But, in my opinion, this is much bigger than López Obrador or the PRD. This is about an effort by a significant portion of the Mexican working people to redress deep social grievances and to make the nation viable. It is not a perfect effort, but it is a valid one.

    And I don’t believe that partisanship precludes objectivity. Or, at least, the honest attempt to be as objective as one can possible be. But that’s another — philosophical — discussion.

    Thanks for your comment, Angel. I appreciate it, in spite of the disqualifying tone you use. Please keep reading my blog — keep keeping me honest.

    POLICY STATEMENT: I hereby pledge to admit and correct any and all FACTUAL errors I may make in writing this blog, no matter how embarrassing. So, I invite readers from all ideological perspectives to keep me honest.

    Let me thank you for this blog on AMLO and the mexican elections….There is not much in the way of accurate information on the mexican debacle in english: just you and Narconews.com. Most of the ‘legitimate’ media (as some people like to call the mainstream press) cant get their facts straight on anything that tweaks their ideological bent, and ive had to challenge them many times.

    So keep up the good work Pancho. And lets hope AMLO doesnt do a GORE/KERRY.

    Incidentally, are u aware that mexicans in US found they were unable to vote because the govt had provided two few ballots? Efforts were made to make voting as difficult as possible. Had their numbers been counted, AMLO would hace won not by a small margin or but by a whopping landslide.

    ‘Celebrations turned to frustration when it was learned that people who wanted to vote needed a current electoral card, and that the cutoff date to apply for an absentee ballot was nearly six months before the election. Mexican electoral laws also do not allow campaigning in the United States, making it hard for expatriates to connect with candidates.

    Fear over the last year kept many from traveling to Mexico to vote in person or apply for a voter card, necessary to request an absentee ballot or vote in Mexico on Election Day.’

    ‘Voting was not all smooth at the special polling stations, which apparently received just 750 ballots each to prevent voter fraud. That left hundreds of voters in Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas, unable to vote.

    “This shows how irresponsible electoral officials are,” said Javier de Anda, a construction contractor from the northern Mexican city of Monterrey who was turned away after waiting in the sun for two hours. “If they know that many of us will be away from our voting districts they shouldn’t limit the number of ballots.”

    ‘750 ballots each to prevent voter fraud’…the irony could knock over an elephant

    You’re more patient that I, PV.

    The PANistas spammed my blog demanding that I look at one of their propaganda videos, then got very huffy when I gently said I wasn’t impressed by it.

    One of them accused me of violating Mexican law forbidding foreigners to meddle in internal affairs.

    Meddling how? By saying the votes should be counted properly.

    Um… just like the NYT and many other publications.

    I was told how stupid I was, how I knew nothing about Mexico, that the election was over and that there wouldn’t be a count of the ballots because it would be illegal. Again and again reality smashed their declarations into splinters and they went on raving as though nothing had happened.

    I started off before this election feeling basically indifferent, that it’s a Mexican election and up to Mexicans to decide, that whoever is in the national government can’t solve the basic problems.

    But so many PANistas behaved in ways so obviously pathological that it became clear this is a matter of concern for all of us. It is as if sociopathy were a viral epidemic unleashed on the world.

    Be at peace, knowing you are doing what is right, and don’t concern yourself about fallen angels. Eventually the truth, whatever it is, will emerge to humble us all.

    HI.. I have been reading some of your comments.. and the only thing I can suggest is that you stop talking about fraud.. there was not such thing…I agree with many that there were errors (human) during the elections but not fraud.. That´s fantasy… We, in Mexico, fortunatelly have a TRIFE that will solve the problems (legally) that arose after the elecctions.. So..calm dowm and be patience.. this is not a war…PRD and PAN people are the same: MEXICANS,,and I am sure PAN and PRD people love this country just as much as you and I love it.

    If we can´t trust the TRIFE.. Then let just forget about the law and rise your hand if you want a re-count because..obviosly you are better prepared that the TRIFE..

    I don’t know if you’re referring to Charles’ comments or to my blog posts. If you mean the latter, I’ll say this:

    Your logic is faulty. It’s like saying: In Mexico there can be no murder, because if somebody kills another person, there are laws and courts that would send the killer to prison. Just because you can punish criminals doesn’t mean that crime is precluded.

    The fact that the AMLO and his supporters are bringing this case to court implies the claim that **there was** an electoral fraud — or, to say the least, an attempt to commit fraud. And here’s abundant evidence to substantiate the claim that there was fraud:

    http://www.lopezobrador.org.mx/actas/

    In any country, this should be a high crime. You may say it’s only about 1.5 million votes. Indeed. In an election so contested, small fraudulent acts may amount to a big fraud. In this case, 1.5 million votes — even 0.5 million votes — can make all the difference in who wins and who loses.

    But I’ll grant you this: If the TRIFE rules in the next few days that the votes be recounted, one by one, then I’ll stop speaking of fraud. Then it’ll only be a failed attempt to commit fraud.
