Mexico Presidential Election Ballots Found in Dump

As the apparent victor in Mexico's presidential
election switched back and forth Thursday morning,
ballots were found in two garbage dumps, RAW STORY has
learned. The news was accompanied by various wire
reports showing that left wing candidate Andrés Manuel
López Obrador had rejected findings that his opponent
Felipe Calderón was the winner.

Although official tallies indicated a victory for
Calderón of 0.3%, the Mexican newspaper El Universal
reported that 10 ballot boxes and a polling station
report were found in a garbage dump in a poor
neighbourhood in Mexico City, according to Reuters.
The ballots came from three precincts in the city of
Nezahuacoyotl, a López Obrador stronghold according to
the website Narco News.

In another indication of electoral fraud, ballots were
also found in a second garbage dump in the city of
Xalapa, the capital of the Mexican State of Veracruz.
Parts of the Spanish language report were translated
by a contributor to a discussion board at the website
Democratic Underground.

A State Department spokesman had earlier declared that
"Mexico has a vibrant and dynamic democracy and
Mexican institutions are fully capable of dealing with
any -- you know, with any irregularities and ensuring
the principles of rule of law and transparency."
