You won't find it on any of the corporate news outlets but the Ukraine elections have been fixed by Yushchenko's Orange crooks. Yushchenko has used the same method as the US Republican Party to strike thousands of pro-Russian voters off the list. Having learned the American way of election-fixing from his Republican-Party-Reagan-White-House wife Cathy, Yushchenko disfranchised thousands of ethnic Russian voters just like the Republican Party disfranchised thousands of blacks in Florida and Ohio.

CHERNOVTSY, Ukraine -- Thousands of Ukrainians with Russian last names may not recognize their names on voters' rolls when they try to vote in parliamentary elections Sunday.
Their names have been translated into Ukrainian.
The issue has been known for three weeks: Ethnic Russian voters have had their names changed in the voter rolls and translated - more often than not mistranslated - into Ukrainian. This blatantly racist act by the government has made it impossible for the ethnic Russian voters to find their names on the polls or to prove that they are the same person even if they do.
The result is that the Orange megacrook Yulya Tymoshenko is scoring higher than expected and Yanukovych is scoring lower, making the return of Yanukovych and good governance to Ukraine, beset by corruption and recession since the Orange "postmodern coup" last year, more difficult.
The irregularities don't end with name-changing but go across the board with every type of vote fraud imaginable:
Ukraine is promising its most democratic election ever, but some opposition parties and voter rights groups have warned that problems with voter lists — sprinkled with missing and incorrect names, as well as so-called "dead souls" — could cast a pall over Sunday's parliamentary vote."
The issue has been widely reported by the Russia Today news network, which has also drawn attention to the Orange electoral propaganda in the newspapers and on the streets in open violation of electoral laws.
The Orange crooks expect Yanukovych's Part of the Regions to challenge them in court on these multiple violations but are confident that the corrupt judiciary will rule in their favor.
