FYI.

Anatoliy Nikolayevich Pakhomov (Russian Анатолий Николаевич Пахомов) (born 1960 in Krasnodar Krai) is a Russian politician. He is currently the mayor of Sochi.[1]
Pakhomov served as the mayor of the town of Anapa from 2005 until 2008.[2] In October 2008 Pakhomov became the fourth occupant of the mayoralty of Sochi since the announcement of the city as the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics.[3]
On 24 March 2009 the United Russia party announced that Pakhomov would be its candidate for the April 26 elections for mayor of Sochi.[4] On 27 April 2009 it was announced that Pakhomov had won the election with 77% of the vote.[1] Boris Nemtsov, who came second with around 14% of the vote, contested the fairness of the election, alleging that he was denied media access and that government workers had been pressured to vote for Pakhomov.

Democratically elected by his peers...

It'd take a whole lot of corruption for Nemtsov to have gotten in and he just wasn't that popular. It looks like the poll reflected his true standing.

Like you ( or anyone ) would know given the corruption from the top down

You may now be getting confused with Navalny - given the guy you mention is dead ... as usual 'topped by Chechens' ...

Moby, think before you pound the keys. Ignorance and dishonesty is not a winning combination.

Yes, some of us are familiar with recent history and current events, go back and see my posts on the relevant topic. Once again you are NOT the smartest person in the room and once again, it shows!

How bored/broke/lonely are you today?
