An Electoral Coup in Iran post, other links re: possible election fraud in Iran

From Abbas Djavadi's Iran & Beyond blog (thanks Filmmaker blog for the link):

"The “electoral coup,” as many in Iran interviewed by Radio Farda called it, has changed the face of the Islamic Republic. It has formalized the exclusion of still moderate clerics, founding fathers and technocrats of the Islamic Republic, and consolidated the rule of a new elite led by Revolutionary Guards, intelligence offices, and radical Islamists who feel to be well-represented by the Ahmadinejad leadership of the last four years. It is widely assumed that the coup cannot have happened with[out?] the clear approval by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. As Supreme Leader, he is charged with protection of the Islamic Republic beyond all political groups and personalities. Khamenei has repeatedly said that a “truthful election with a high turnout” is the “clearest symbol of the system’s legitimacy.” Last night’s rigged vote count seems to have left that legitimacy in shatters."
