Evidence is surfacing the communist Greens stole the presidential election from the far-right in Austria.

Via Bloomberg:
Austria’s populist Freedom Party challenged the result of last month’s presidential election after its candidate Norbert Hofer lost narrowly, citing irregularities affecting about two-thirds of the mail ballots that tipped the balance.

Party head Heinz-Christian Strache contested the election in the Constitutional Court with a 150-page filing, he told reporters in Vienna on Wednesday, the last day the challenge was possible. Strache said the vote must be repeated because more than half a million ballots are affected. Hofer lost the May 22 election to Alexander Van der Bellen by 30,863 votes, according to the final result published June 1 by the interior ministry.

Do you trust this man?
“Without those glitches and irregularities, Hofer could have become president,” Strache said. “We aren’t bad losers, this is about the pillars of democracy that have to be secured.”

...Strache’s complaints only affect irregularities regarding postal votes, which were counted a day after the election and tipped the balance in Van der Bellen’s favor. The Freedom Party says it determined irregularities in 94 of 117 voting districts, in which 573,275 such votes were cast. Most of them relate to the premature sorting of the voting envelopes, according to a document the party’s lawyers made available.
Hofer had the election in the bag, he only needed something like 43% of the postal ballots to go in his favor, which is perfectly reasonable considering how close the election was.

Instead, the communist supposedly won over 60% of the postal ballots, which is just ridiculous.

If they do an actual honest investigation, there's sure to be fraud uncovered.
