U.S. federal prosecutor in Puerto Rico Rosa Emilia Rodriguez announced Sunday her investigation into government officials who allegedly did not deliver hurricane relief aid to the islands residents.
During an interview on WAPA Radio, Rodriguez criticized two officials who failed to deliver needed supplies to their constituents, Metro PR reported.
This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor, said Rodríguez, noting that the case is currently under investigation.

.. “I cant mention who these people are, because it could affect the investigation.
Hmmmm, I wonder to whom she could be referring?
an official was hoarding supplies for residents who had voted for that person.
This is excellent...
“’People are already killing each other over supplies’: ‘Puerto Rico cop’ says governor and San Juan mayor are starving citizens to DEATH for photo opportunities - and the US needs to send in SOLDIERS to take over”
Governor Ricardo Rossello and Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz were to blame, she said
A woman claiming to be a Puerto Rican police officer has accused San Juan’s mayor and Puerto Rico’s governor of holding back supplies in order to make for better photo opportunities.
The woman, who did not give her name, told New York radio station Mega 97.9 on Thursday that Governor Ricardo Rossello and Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz were refusing to cut through bureaucracy.
That was leading to people starving to death and turning to murder to seize supplies for their families, she claimed.
So, Cruz is starving to death her own people, and then trying to blame Trump.
Go to jail!!
Sounds like a Third World country run by a little tiny tinpot dictators in their little tiny towns.
And independence would make it official. Being a Commonwealth is the people's only hope for justice.
In my military years, I came to work with several Puerto Rican guys, and they all told the same basic story. It’s a third-world island with the bare necessities of a democracy...corrupt politicians around every corner...and nothing working right. All of them who joined the military and left the island...never intended to ever move back there.
It would serve the US well to just hand them two or three billion in cash, and dump them as a territory. Let them survive like Haiti.
I see potential there. Put someone in charge like Augusto Pinochet. Just cut off all transportation leaving the island. The Monroe Doctrine allows us to make any outside power think twice b4 taking advantage.
Someone suggested eliminating the minimum wage down there. Give them their own NFL team. lol
ah, those Puerto Rican Amish. They can be so much fun.
Sounds like the Democrat Party’s MO
Illinois Democrats used to do that with the Government Cheese Program. Mayor & City Council families were always first in line.
G. W. Bush would not have investigated. Thats why we elected Trump.
“And independence would make it official. Being a Commonwealth is the people’s only hope for justice.”
No thank you — that would seal the deal for the democrats — 3+ more guaranteed electoral votes for them
He said grant them independence, not make them a state.
I lived there for more than two years. The island has a larger middle class than any Hispanic country and the problem lies not in the people themselves but that the democrats were placed in charge and have ruined the place at the top. The people are very capable and the place could be a model for the world had the liberals not taken control early on. No, elpadre is not Hispanic - Scot/Irish heritage.
“he democrats were placed in charge and have ruined the place”
Just look at any democrat run state compared to any republican run state.
Leftists/democrats successfully destroy anything and everything they touch. Heck, they don’t even have to touch it, but just look at it. That is the extreme super power of the leftists/democrat.
Obamacare - built on a lie, a hoax. Grubered. (And yet, even RINOs want to fix a hoax.)
Globull warming - built on a lie, a hoax
Gun control - built on a lie, a hoax
Democrat party - built on a lie, a hoax
