Selected not elected

I have no idea what is going on in Iran; just an FYI. But it seems to me the Iranian government has had some help from ACORN and Chicago's important Undead-American community as Iran managed more than 100% voter turnout in fifty cities.

Iran's Guardian Council has suggested that the number of votes collected in 50 cities surpass the number of people eligible to cast ballot in those areas.
"Statistics provided by the candidates, who claim more than 100% of those eligible have cast their ballot in 80-170 cities are not accurate -- the incident has happened in only 50 cities," Kadkhodaei said.

Only 50 cities. It sounds as though Iran's Guardian Council press representative has been channeling Jennifer Lynch. Call it Canadian Content.

Related: Have you written about the thought police at the Canadian Human Rights Commission? Blazing Cat Fur explains how! Strangely enough, we both thought of Lynch in connection with Iran's own robust notion of public debate.

Jennifer Lynch has been making a list and checking it twice stating: I'm sure I have 1,200, certainly several hundred of these things," Referring to blog posts and news reports she claims have misinformed the public about the benevolence of the Thought Police at the CHRC.

My suggestion - file an Access to Information request with the CHRC, instructions below. I'm kinda lookin forward to seeing my own posts redacted in the CHRC's reply.
