NoUFO ... dah ... the USA is a dunce when elections are concerned ... look in the Balkans if you're looking for "fun" ....
In mid 90s Slobodan Milosevic (the same SM
currently imprisoned in Hague) won the presidential elections in several communities with more than 100% (record community had him get around 110% of all votes and the opposite candidate getting 0 votes). Go figure.
But to be honest we have our own share of stupid politicians... Take one J.P., the former president of the Slovenian Parliament. He entered a disputed area on the border between Slovenia and Croatia (both countries claim the 2x2 mile area ... - and it's arid land ... the problem is that it's connected to a nice little bay
) and when leaving wouldn't showing the Croat border post his ID
... got boxed in the stomach and dragged to a Croat courthouse ... stupidity on his part. Elections or no elections. Stupid politician. :>
