As Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads by a razor-thin advantage against Republican nominee Donald Trump, the votes are still being counted and the final result may not be clear for a while.
One thing apparently clear is one vote that came for Hassan Nasrallah.
Nasrallah, third and current Secretary-General of the Lebanese political and paramilitary Iran-backed party Hezbollah made an appearance in the U.S. elections after someone voted for him.
This comes after multiple humorous incidents where a vote for Nabih Berri was counted in Fresno, California, as well as widely loved Lebanese pop-singer Haifa Wehbe garnering one vote in the State of Michigan.
The unwarranted vote was apparently registered in the state of Michigan, which is known to encompass a large population of Lebanese-American citizens.
One thing is apparent with that trend. Some Lebanese-Americans are not favoring any of the U.S. presidential candidates nor are up to do their civic duty. It seems they miss their homeland and its fervent sectarian politics.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
