fraud in congo?

Hey, if Congo had US-style electronic voting machines (programmed and operated by friends and supporters of the political party in power) there would be no question of election fraud! Or at least, nothing they could PROVE. Non-transparency is important in a democracy. It is much better to erase records and not provide paper confirmation of how your votes were counted as done in so many US states like Ohio. The alternative? Messy recounts that will eventually force a country's top court to select a winner on purely partisan lines. Wouldn't want that, would we?
