3. To be fair, here are some other snips from your link
security forces had found evidence that opposition voters used false identities, including the names of dead people, to reconfirm disputed pro-referendum signatures in official checks over the weekend.

"Without any doubt, in the last few days we have witnessed very strong evidence of a new attempt at fraud," Chavez told reporters in Caracas.


But Chavez told the observers they should remember Venezuela was an independent nation.

He said the electoral authorities should not be pressured into announcing a result, especially in the light of the evidence of fraud.

"Several thousand dead people have turned up signing (the referendum petition)," he said.


police raids on opposition centers had discovered "laboratories" to produce false identity cards.
