VENEZUELA / USA : Actor Sean Penn Campaigns For Chavez; Thumbprint Reader Alarms Some Voters.


      This is hard to stomach...but actor Sean Penn lent his celebrity to President Hugo Chavez at a Sunday election rally.
      Still recovering after 3 cancer surgeries...Chavez faces the toughest re-election fight of his career...though most polls still give him a double digit lead over young opponent...former governor Henrique Capriles Radonski.
      Penn and Chavez are longtime friends.

   ALSO:  Election thumbprint reader technique...scares some...as invasion of privacy.
