Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe throw a fit

Ria Novosti reports:
“The third largest faction in the European Parliament has called for a freeze on contacts with the Russian State Duma until Russia holds "free and fair parliamentary elections."

The proposal, from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), comes as former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, co-chair of the unregistered People's Freedom Party, is in Brussels to discuss the upcoming presidential election in Russia, ALDE said in a press release.”
In that case, ALDE might want to call for a freeze on contacts with the United States since we have problems with election fraud too. From the AP:
“Nevada Republicans finally released the results of their Saturday caucuses early Monday morning, after volunteers had stayed up for nearly 48 hours counting and recounting votes in a contest that saw only 33,000 votes cast, about 9 percent of the state's registered Republicans. Party leaders said they wanted to take their time to avoid another Iowa.

Last month, Iowa initially called its first-in-the-nation presidential race for Mitt Romney by eight votes, only to have allegations of impropriety surface. Two weeks later Iowa Republicans announced that — oops — Rick Santorum had actually won by 34 votes. The head of the Iowa GOP said he would resign.”
Note: Iowa to date still has not found the eight missing precincts. They might want to try dredging the Mississippi River.
