Denny and “the governor of all Puerto Ricans”

Denny was playing Name That Party yesterday with this story:
Puerto Rican leader posts Facebook apology

Puerto Rico’s governor, indicted on corruption charges, posted a video on the popular social networking site Facebook admitting to making mistakes.
During the four-minute video, Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila apologized to Puerto Ricans saying he “committed errors.”
However, he did not address specific charges against him or admit to any criminal wrongdoing, according to the video posted Sunday.
A federal indictment handed down earlier this year accused the Puerto Rican governor of conspiracy to violate federal campaign laws and lying to the FBI, among other charges.
Acevedo, who was voted out of office last month, faces trial in February.

Here’s the video (in Spanish)

The YouTube account says, “Mensaje del gobernador de todos los puertorriqueños, Aníbal Acevedo Vilá,” “Message from the governor of all Puerto Ricans,” unless of course one lives elsewhere.

    Por favor, Aníbal. Ahórrate tus lagrimitas de cocodrilo: no te pegan ni con cola. (Anibal: please! Save the crocodile tears. They don’t match you!)

    Good riddance!

    ¡Bienvenido al Gobernador Luis Fortuño!
