Ken Blackwell In Full Effect, Y'all

They may not yet know the results of the Iraqi vote on their new constitution, but they do know one thing: the vote was so riddled with enough fraud to make the Ohio secretary of state mighty proud.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's election commission announced Monday that officials were investigating "unusually high" numbers of "yes" votes in about a dozen provinces during Iraq's landmark referendum on a new constitution, raising questions about irregularities in the balloting.

Word of the review came as Sunni Arab leaders repeated accusations of fraud after initial reports from the provinces suggested the constitution had passed. Among the Sunni allegations are that police took ballot boxes from heavily "no" districts, and that some "yes" areas had more votes than registered voters.
