Two More Puerto Rican Officials Fired for Corruption
Article from The Daily Wire by Emily Zanotti.
Puerto Rico’s governor sacked two more officials Sunday, after residents of the town of Ponce, wracked by a pair of natural disasters within just over a year of each other, discovered a warehouse full of bottled water, baby diapers, non-perishable food, and other aid items delivered in the wake of Hurricane Maria and never distributed.
“The pallets of bedding, food and medical supplies sat wrapped in plastic and unused in a warehouse for more than two years while Puerto Ricans suffered through the aftermath of a devastating hurricane and, recently, an earthquake,” Fox News reported Monday. “Now their discovery has triggered a political firestorm.”
She immediately fired the island’s director of emergency management, Carlos Acevedo and, later Sunday, “fired the heads of Puerto Rico’s housing and family departments, Housing Secretary Fernando Gil and Department of Family Secretary Glorimar Andújar,” per the New York Post.
Acevedo seemed to indicate, in statements, that he knew about the supplies, but that he believed them to be “expired.” Several hundred pallets of water, he claimed, were distributed after Hurricane Dorian and Hurricane Karen hit the island, and during a summer drought. His excuses weren’t satisfactory, however, to Puerto Ricans, who have suffered food, water, and electricity shortages since Hurricane Maria in 2017.

The corruption in Puerto Rico has been rampant for years and years. President Trump, even though just elected, was blamed for much of it. The MSM at work, early in his term of office. The MSM has never stopped slanting the news, hurting all of America and all her Territories, yet we listen to them. WHY???
Firing the Democrats is a good start.
