Quality of Election Administration, Part 2
The rhetoric on fraud has heated up. Tymoshenko has raised concerns about efforts at massive vote theft using mobile ballot boxes, especially in the east. Yanukovych turned Shakespearean for his reply: "a guilty mind betrays itself.") (see the BBC and Reuters versions of the story as well as the Jamestown Foundation's assessment. Also, see Henry VI, Part 3, Act 5, Scene 6 for Yanukovych's source material). President Yushchenko made more thoughtful and measured comments on the same subject at a press conference. Part three of this post will probably come sooner rather than later.
