Electoral Violence In Mexico.....(video)

Sat Jul 04, 2009 6:11 pm

Here you can see a video of a man (a political observer) being beat up by members of the governing political party in Mexico for exposing them in "vote purchasing" activities.

The video shows a group of members from Cristobal Franyutti's mayoral election comitee for the city of San Miguel de Allende caught distributing food on behalf of the candidate in order to gain voter support. This is basically seeking political gain taking advantage of people's hunger, poverty, desperation and plain ignorance.

I call to all the Mexicans on this forum....to go out and vote tomorrow...WE NEED TO CHANGE THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!

Oh man I'm glad I'm not gonna be there until this drama is over, or hopefully so.

And the PAN? Seriously!?!?! If anything I would've expected the PeRDere to pull a stunt like this, or the PRI. What a shame, regardless.

I'd do my part but Im in the states ATM. And even though I have my IFE card the US state department would probably not appreciate it if I voted in a "foreign" country, even if I'm a dual citizen...   

And when I get back south of the border in HMO they probably still will be bitching and whining because of the whole guarderia scandal. Don't get me started on that idiotic mess

I wouldn't say so, it just wasn't a HUGE change, but a change nevertheless.
