On the question of how dare I question the credibility of Venezuela's National Electoral Commission (CNE,) there are good reasons to be skeptical about it. First, the studies I mentioned in the column, showing that the voting registry in the state of Zulia showed nearly 2,000 people named Gonzalez, born in the same day of the same year, who happened to register to vote on the same day in 2004. Hmmm! Then, El Nuevo Herald reported today that the national voting register includes 39,000 people aged over 100, including one Josefina Molina Lantz, who is 175 years old.
