Afghani election fraud

Today's other "election" in Afghanistan has not gone well. It was discovered that some of the polling places—no one knows how many—were not using indelible ink to mark the voters, so Afghanis in those areas were able to vote early and often. All 15 of the candidates opposing Karzai have withdrawn in protest, so there's only one candidate left on the ballot.

According to Reuters,

Afghanistan's election authority said on Saturday the election process would continue in the country's historic presidential election despite a decision by most of the candidates to boycott the poll over irregularities.

Well, they might as well go ahead with it. It was a farce to begin with, and having only one candidate on the ballot is far more in tune with reality.
