Boxer challenge Palestinian Election Results

Haifa, Israel.

Today U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer challenged certification of the election results in the Palestinian Authority. Citing "voting" irregularities, Senator Boxer said "Why, for example did it take until four o'clock voters to get their turn at the ballot box? How many voters were frustrated, gave up and left to lob rockets as Israeli schools?" Supported by Stephanie Tubbs of the House of Representatives, Senator Boxer presented her objections before a joint meeting of the Palestinian Authority.
