Another story you won't see in the mainstream media

Via Slashdot and Power Line (and how many stories can you say that about?): It seems that our buddy the ousted president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, was engaging in some good old-fashioned vote rigging. Slashdot says:

In Honduras, according to breaking Catalan newspaper reports (translations available, USA Today mention), authorities have seized 45 computers containing certified election results for a constitutional election that never happened. The election had been scheduled for June 28, but on that day the president, Manuel Zelaya, was ousted. The 'certified' and detailed electronic records of the non-existent election show Zelaya's side having won overwhelmingly.

Power Line says:

Deposed Honduran president Manuel Zelaya put a lot of planning into the illegal referendum he hoped to hold. It was this illegal referendum that prompted his removal from office. Zelaya apparently didn't trust Hondurans to vote the right way on the referendum. According to a Catalan Europa Press report picked up and translated by Babalu Blog, Zelaya had the machinery in place to rig the results.

Anyone want to bet on whether CNN will even run the story, never mind when? It's way too much to hope that our government will stand behind the legitimate government of Honduras, and oppose the pressure coming from Chavez and Castro to put their fellow leftist back in power against the laws of Honduras.
