TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Saying it had completed an investigation into alleged voter irregularities, Iran's election authority on Monday stood by its findings that gave hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad an overwhelming victory and sparked more than two weeks of chaos in the streets.
A partial recount has confirmed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's victory, the Guardian Council says.
There was "no tangible irregularity," Guardian Council spokesman Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei told government-run Press TV after reporting that a recount of some 10 percent of the votes found no significant di
Suspicious ballot photos posted by Iran state media? A reader writes, "I believe this is well worth reporting: many interesting photos are being put on the web as I write, a good number of them published by IRNA itself (see here). These are images from the recent Guardians Council TV broadcast session where they 'recounted' some ballot boxes and found out that indeed Ahmadinejad's votes were higher than previously counted. These pictures show two things very clearly: 1) that a whole lot of the ballots that are being recounted are fresh, crisp, unfolded sheets - which makes no sense, given that people typically had to fold these sheets before they can slip them into the ballot boxes, and 2) that the handwriting on so many of the sheets which are votes for 'Ahmadinejad' are the same handwriting (and very clearly so)."

You got any actual evidence to backup your claim of rigging? Has anyone anywhere proven faul play?
Rioters were just sore losers, that's it.

If you look, you shall find. The photos were not at all difficult to find, Here are a few sources:
Official Iranian government approved photo of Votes being recounted. Notice, NO FOLDS. Every genuine vote was folded in half so that it would fit into the voting box.
Photo of unfolded votes
Photo and article showing multiple votes with Same Handwriting
HuffingtonPost report showing Official photos that prove vote fraud
All of the photos linked to were from the Official Iranian Government news agency. When the obvious vote fraud was pointed out, they pulled the photos and Ahmadinejad cancelled a press conference about the recount.
Just to top things off I offer you this evidence: Cell phone video showing one person signing multiple votes
