Dear Aníbal Acevedo Vilá: Quit Being An Asshat

canibal1.jpgThe governor of my beautiful homeland, the tropical paradise of Puerto Rico, is now under investigation by the FBI for a bunch of charges related to Monopoly money, questionable accounting practices, stealing money from taxpayers to finance campaign debt from previous terms, and so on and so forth. According to today’s edition of El Nuevo Dia, he’s not going out without a fight. Aníbal (or CAníbal as some folks refer to him) is desperately trying to convince his constituents to stand by his side, because of course, he is completely innocent of every single charge brought against him.

canibal2.jpgSo Mr. Governor… you been caught stealin’. All I can tell you is: you’re not the first, and certainly won’t be the last. Why don’t you try to be a man about it and accept what’s coming to you instead of dragging the taxpayers into it? This desperate attempt to spin your trial as a fight on behalf of the people of Puerto Rico against the evil federal authorities is not sitting well with us. I can’t help but think that most decent and hard-working taxpayers would dislike being associated with an alleged federal criminal.

Commenter Arturo on El Nuevo Dia’s website hit the nail directly on the head:

“ANIBAL, ESTA LUCHA NO ES “POR PUERTO RICO”, COMO SIGUES REPITIENDO. EL ACUSADO NO ES PUERTO RICO, ERES TÚ. DEFIENDETE SOLITO Y NO NOS METAS EN ESTO. ATENTAMENTE, EL PAIS.”

…which roughly translates to:

“Anibal, this is not a fight ‘for Puerto Rico’ as you keep saying. Puerto Rico is not the defendant in this case, you are. Defend your own ass and don’t drag the rest of us into this. Sincerely, The Country.”

  6. […] My take? The content of the governor’s legal defense is hardly surprising given the level of detail and number of charges included in the indictment against him, although it doesn’t seem like a defense based on legal technicalities and alternate interpretations of documented facts will do much for Acevedo Vila’s credibility given his earlier claims of complete innocence. […]

    PUERTO RICO IS SMARTER THAN ANIBAL. WE NEED TO GET HIM OUT AND GET CLOSER TO USA AND BECOME A STATE.
