The latest from the right-wing bag of dirty tricks...


Venezuela's high court late Monday denied ever ruling that President Hugo
Chávez couldn't run if there are new elections, saying a statement
purportedly from the court making that claim was a forgery.

The court said that someone rewrote a sentence of a ruling, which had been
given to reporters earlier Monday. It said that the forgery read that the
justices had decided that Chávez wouldn't be able to run if he were to lose
a possible recall referendum later this year.

In a statement posted on its Web site late Monday, the court said that the
ruling released to reporters was fraudulent, different from the one it
actually approved.
