Where’s Jimmy Carter Now?

April 24, 2013

Jimmy Carter validated the election of Hugo Chávez when he became president of Venezuela in 1998, playing a part in condemning the country to 15 years of misery under the dictator’s rule.

Now that Chávista standard-bearer Nicolás Maduro has defeated challenger Henrique Capriles by a margin of just 1.6% (about 250,000 votes), the former leader of the free world has been silent about the outcome.  Nothing has been posted on The Carter Center’s Web site.
