From The Post: Court Rejects Fraud Claims
Mexico's electoral tribunal rejected nearly all of the fraud claims by presidential runner-up Andrés Manuel López Obrador, saying that a partial recount will not change the outcome of the July 2 presidential election. The court did not officially declare a winner, but few expect the final outcome to change.
López Obrador had leveled a host of allegations, including claims that tally sheets were changed, voters were paid off and computers were rigged by Mexico's electoral institute, which oversaw the balloting. But the tribunal was unimpressed by the evidence López Obrador submitted.
The electoral court has until Sept. 6 to declare a winner, and it must still respond to López Obrador's demand that the election be annulled.
