Puerto Rico Government on the Brink of Collapse [SerIOUSs Vanity]

7/13/2019

Posted on 07/13/2019 7:23:39 PM PDT by cll

After a week of criminal corruption indictments and a bizarre leak of the Governor's inner circle private chat channel, an unprecedented collapse of the island government is unfolding at this moment.

The Puerto Rico Mayors Federation, a group that organizes the island mayors belonging to the governing New Progressive Party, has given a vote of no confidence to the government of Ricardo Rossello. Municipal mayors constitute the base of power for any island wide office holder, and this withdrawal of endorsement signifies the end of Rossello's political viability.

Rossello has fired everyone involved in the now infamous Telegram app chat that has been leaked over the past week, a chat that exposed the administration's executive core most intimate beliefs, but so far he has refused to step down from office.

We doubt he will survive the weekend in power. Since he has fired his second in command and next in line for the governorship, the Puerto Rico Secretary of State - Luis G. Rivera-Marin, it looks like the Secretary of Justice will have to take over the government.

More news as events warrant.

This is all over local Spanish language media and has really not broken into the mainland MSM yet, hence, the vanity from a local source.

Thank God they aren’t a state.

I’d say take them down a notch from their current status.

Well its probably a buffer thing. You want it being an non-friendlies territory that close to us? We took it from Spain for winning the Spanish-American war.

Great idea. Give Puero Rico to England. Prince Andrew could be their governor. LOL

This is real news — not a vanity. No need to apologize.

Thanks for the heads up.

Can you summarize the gist of the chat messages and what it means?



To: cll

Any word on San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz?



To: Extremely Extreme Extremist

It was a friendly before castro.

And we did have to stop nukes being placed there.
