❝ Here is the roadmap. Here is the method. Here is the tested formula for carrying out the looting. Veracruz is the model for what happens in the rest of Mexico, state after state, governor after governor. The looting carried out weekly, monthly, every six-year term. Javier Duarte is the archetype of the greed of many who govern a rich country peopled by millions of poor. Javier Duarte is the stinking example that shows how an administration can become a plunderer. An omnipotent governor becomes an unpunished looter. He is accused, criticized, exposed and still untouched.
❝ He remains immune from the magnificent report published in the Animal Politico website with Mexicans Against Corruption, detailing what he did, how he did it, when he did it. The corruption is described step by step. The government of Veracruz delivered US$35 million to a network of 21 companies allegedly to buy blankets, school supplies and shoes. These supplies did not reached their destination. The money was allegedly paid to “partners” who are residents of shantytowns who signed [incorporation] documents in exchange for promises of support. The scheme was created with made-up tenders for bids and direct contract awards, with corrupt officials and manipulated people, with a governor who promoted corruption and benefited from it. It was a network of shell companies and apocryphal partners, thanks to which Duarte and his people pocketed millions from the public treasury. It’s the Veracruz model.
It’s the Mexican model. RTFA for details, examples, a tale that goes back through decades of official corruption.
