Who Would Have Thought

The police in Russia are going all NYPD on protestors of the recent legislative elections and claims of fraud. Now the BBC reports that Russia protests: Gorbachev calls for election re-run.

OK, so there might have been some problems. Badtux has a screen shot of some of the returns:

In the Rostov District

  1. United Russia 58.99%
  2. Communist Party RF 32.96%
  3. Liberal Democratic Party 23.74%
  4. A Just Russia 19.41%
  5. Apple [Russian United Democratic Party] 9.32%
  6. Patriots of Russia 1.46%
  7. Right Cause .59%

Gee, I wonder why people suspect fraud? It might just be rounding errors. [/snark]
