In the Hugo Chavez Autocracy fairness and honesty are not important when dealing with electoral matters. While La Patilla published a document showing how Ministries financed and mobilized the people to go to Chavez’ rally on Monday, the bank Superintendent asked all financial institutions to provide him with the details of all fund movements in the bank accounts for opposition figures such as Gerardo Blyde, Leopoldo Lopez, Stalin Gonzalez and Delsa Solorzano.
Thus, while Chavez finances his campaign in full violation of the law, in a manner that is punished with jail, the Superintendent of Banks goes fishing to see if any irrelevant amount of money is flowing to Capriles’ campaign via opposition leaders. This limits campaign contributions, as donors are afraid of being harrased for contributing to Capriles’ campaign, while all of the Government’s resources are at the service of Chavez’ efforts in blatant violation of the law.
Such are the unfair and unethical ways of the revolution.
