“‘Let there be no mistake — Sunday’s regional and municipal elections in Venezuela are nothing more than a sham,’ reads a recent statement authored by Republican US Senators Jim Risch and Michael McCaul. …’Today’s elections in Venezuela are as illegitimate as Maduro’s tyrannical regime,’ reads a tweet by Republican Senator Rick Scott. … the US has no more moral authority over the legitimacy of democratic processes than a totalitarian monarchy like Saudi Arabia. US elections are of course corrupt and fraudulent, entirely dominated at the federal level by legalized oligarchic bribery in the form of campaign contributions, manipulated primaries, gerrymandering, voter suppression, shutting out third parties, and the worst voting system in the western world. More than this, though, the United States is also the world’s single most egregious offender when it comes to interfering in foreign elections.” (11/22/21)
