Richard Daley elected President of Iran
The Iranian High Council continued to deny that fraud had affected the result of the elections held nine days ago, announcing that a recount had determined that Richard Daley has been elected President of Iran.
American President Barack Hussein Obama claimed credit for the outcome, pointing to millions of stimulus dollars which funded A.C.O.R.N.'s get out the vote effort in Iran. The effectiveness of that campaign was proven when Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei, spokesman for the Iranian Guardian Council, pointed out that "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".
