Puerto Rico’s government just keeps sliding further and further into the sewer.
From being unable to distribute reliefe supplies that showed up, to finding water shipments a year later that were un-opened and not distributed.
Now we have riots, and governmetn officials being arrested and a call for the Governor to resign (but he is refusing).
lls for Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló to resign are growing after remarks he made in a private group chat were leaked, and more protests are being organized in San Juan.
Some of the e-mails:
The exchanges between the governor and his inner circle reveal a vengeful approach in running the government – including attacking journalists by discrediting stories and threatening to turn over political opponents to police.
In the chat, Christian Sobrino Vega, then-Puerto Rico’s chief fiscal officer and Roselló’s representative on the federal board, expressed frustration with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and said he wanted to shoot her.
“You’d be doing me a grand favor,” the governor responded, according to the leaked chats.
Two members of the government that were in the chats have resigned. The governor is digging in and saying he appologized and need not do anything futher becaus he has “work to do”.
Puerto Rico is a disaster (and not from the Hurricanes). I used to think they should be given one last vote, become a state or be cut loose. Now I’m thinking they just need to be cut loose and become their own nation and we should be done with them.
