This reminds me of the time Saddam Hussein, at the start of his trial for genocide and crimes against the Iraqi people, was asked by the court to state his name for the record.
Saddam looked the judge square in his eyes and declared; "I am Saddam Hussein, the President of Iraq, and do not recognize the authority of this court. I demand to be set free."
"Di Biase DEMANDS city declare him Mayor"
Vaughan Citizen, Nov 30, 2006, Joe Fantauzzi, Staff Writer.
(Vaughan) - Michael Di Biase is demanding to be declared mayor following what he calls "serious irregularities" at a Maple polling station.
In a statement issued yesterday afternoon, Mr. Di Biase alleges that during the electronic machine recount, granted by council last week, an envelope with a handwritten statement signed by voting observers was found inside a ballot box holding ballots from the Father John Kelly Catholic Elementary School polling station on Keele Street. The note allegedly said "the ballots and ballot boxes had been left unattended for most of the day and that the tabulator machine had broken down twice."
