Mo'in Supporter

Now this is just a crazy-sounding buried nugget. Seyyed Mohsen Tasaloti, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadeinjad's third nominee for Petroleum Minister, supported Reformist Mustafa Mo'in in the Presidential race:
"Legislators complained that Tasaloti did not believe in the existence of a petroleum mafia -- which is supposedly responsible for corruption -- and he did not have a program for combating this phenomenon. They also raised allegations that Tasaloti backed the reformist Mustafa Moin in the 2005 presidential race, although Ahmadinejad rejected those concerns, saying, 'We believe that elections are free and by secret ballot, and we don't have the right to make someone's vote the criterion for assessing them.'"
