Palestinian Politics as Usual

First there was murder, now we have Palestinian election officials resigning en masse.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Forty-six members of the Palestinian election commission, including top managers, resigned Saturday, saying they were pressured by Mahmoud Abbas’ campaign and intelligence officials to abruptly change voting procedures during the Jan. 9 presidential poll.

As Charles asks:

Will Jimmy Carter still insist it was a free, fair, and democratic election?

Why, of course! Facts are details to be ignored.
