Today at 11AM Eastern I’ll talk about Puerto Rico’s governor, Anibal Acevedo Vila, who was indicted last March on 19 counts stemming from financial dealings in three political campaign but remains in office. Four Philadelphians were also charged at that time. After surrending to the FBI and being charged, Acevedo was released and remains in office. Marc Ambinder posted the Department of Justice’s press release announcing the indictement.
Now Acevedo’s facing new charges along with a senior aide and his former campaign director who also had been charged last March. He’s the first Puerto Rican governor to face federal charges. Breitbart has more.
