republicans outraged over election fraud

richard and colin weigh bodes well for our democracy when our leaders are willing to stand up and demand clean elections!!!!!!!!!!

and that our media is all over this story.....on top of it!!!! sooooo cool!

"We cannot accept this result [of the presidential election in Ukraine] as legitimate because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse," he said. Powell said it is time for Ukraine's leaders to decide whether or not they are on the side of democracy.

And Richard Lugar, head of the U.S. Senate foreign relations committee, said the Ukrainian authorities had supported concerted fraud in Sunday's presidential election.
"It is now apparent that there was a concerted and forceful program of election day fraud and abuse enacted with the leadership or co-operation of authorities," said Lugar

Richard Lugar
"We've had many reports of irregularities," Motria Onyschuk-Moroz, a Canadian election observer in Ukraine, told CBC Newsworld. "Many people were turned away during election day and had to contest their right to vote in court. They were forced to wait for hours in long lines at the courts."

so glad we don't have to worry about that shit here!!!!!
