The Siegelman case: how the GOP is using the same electoral scams that Batista used in Cuba

The Raw Story reports that the GOP is today relying on electoral scams that are very similar to the ones used by General Fulgencio Batista in Cuba.

They are the same tricks used by George W. Bush to crown himself as the new President of the United States in the year 2000, using massive electoral fraud in Florida. He was helped in the process by his ultra-right-wing Cuban-American buddies in Miami.

Read the Raw Story report and the CNN report.

Will the history repeat itself in November of 2008? If the American people do not keep a close watch, they could end up with very undemocratic elections, just like Cuba during the period 1952-1958.
