(Newser) – Iran's presidential election is barely over, and foes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are wasting no time in summoning the outgoing president to a Tehran criminal court. Parliament speaker Ali Larijani, who has consistently been a thorn in Ahmadinejad's side, lodged a complaint against him, though his charges haven't been announced. The summons could herald a difficult future for Ahmadinejad, Reuters notes, who has questioned the authority of the supreme leader and accused Larijani's family of corruption.

Ahmadinejad is a disgusting man. Ahmadinejad is the President of an "Axis of Evil". Nothing good has ever come out of Iran. I saw the movie "300". Iran used to be called Persia. Persia was a barbaric nation. After Islam entered Iran it was still a barbaric country. The Shah of Iran who was a puppet of the United States disobeyed America's orders and tortured thousands of Iranians. In 1979, the barbaric rule of the Shah of Iran was overthrown by the barbaric Mullahs. Aya-toilet Komayni entered Iran and took U.S. Embassy officials as terorists. After 444 days the Aya-toilet set free the brave American embassy officials. Movies such as "The stoning of Soraya M", "Not without my daughter", "Argo" and "The wrestler" detail the barbaric acts of the Iranians. Iran is a bogus country built on more than 2,500 years of terrorist activity. Iran is disgusting.
