In Protesting Haitian Election, Candidate Baker Aligns With Wyclef and Rival Sweet Micky
Sweet Micky, Charlie Baker, and Wyclef Jean.
Al Gore and George W. Bush riding hand-in-hand down Okeechobee Boulevard in November 2000 to protest hanging chads. Something in that vein happened in yesterday's Haitian election, which went just about as badly as anyone could have expected.
Baker sent out a tweet yesterday morning alleging "massive electoral fraud in Haiti today." Then, several hours into voting, youth-friendly candidate Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly called for a news conference and peaceful demonstration. The goal? A postponement of the election, due to voter fraud , infrastructure problems, and the cholera crisis.
