Greg Palast, the same journalist that recently committed racial slurs on Cynthia McKinney's website, is now accusing the President of the United States of being involved in the Mexican presidential race this past week.
Mexico and Florida have more in common than heat

There is evidence that left-leaning voters have been scrubbed from key electoral lists in Latin America

There's something rotten in Mexico. And it smells like Florida. The ruling party, the Washington-friendly National Action Party (Pan), proclaimed yesterday their victory in the presidential race, albeit tortilla thin, was Mexico's first "clean" election. But that requires we close our eyes to some very dodgy doings in the vote count that are far too reminiscent of the games played in Florida in 2000 by the Bush family. And indeed, evidence suggests that Team Bush had a hand in what may be another presidential election heist.
Just before the 2000 balloting in Florida, I reported in the Guardian that its governor, Jeb Bush, had ordered the removal of tens of thousands of black citizens from the state's voter rolls. He called them "felons", but our investigation discovered their only crime was Voting While Black. And that little scrub of the voter rolls gave the White House to his brother George.

Last week, he wrote racial slurs on an American politician's website. Now, he is accusing our President of having a hand in the Mexican election for their president. He should not be considered a serious journalist anymore, and his stories should be considered in the same vein as the Sunday cartoons.
