A lot of the problems that Puerto Rico endured after Hurricane Maria were due to local corruption and there were a lot of questions about local leaders especially San Juan’s mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
Puerto Rico has a long history of corruption as anything controlled by the Democrats usually do. Let the chips fall where they may!
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is one of the most despicable people. If anyone cashed in on the pain of Puerto Rico it was Cruz with her silly hats and t-shirts coupled with the wasting of aid left to spoil. It wouldn’t surprise me if they find her elbow-deep in the aid cookie jar.

As we all know, San Juan’s mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, and President Donald Trump have repeatedly sparred over the past year regarding the federal response to the hurricanes that leveled Puerto Rico in 2017 with Trump blaming corruption for many of the island’s problems:
Mayor Cruz’s reaction:
Translation: At this time, members of the FBi are intervening in the Municipal Tower of SJ. My instructions as always are of total collaboration
I have no more information right now. We all have a duty to work together to clarify this situation 2/3
If someone has done something wrong, they must be subjected to due process and face the consequences of their actions. 3/3 More
FBI agents raided San Juan’s municipal building on Tuesday amid an investigation into purchasing practices used by city officials, including Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
Video posted on Twitter shows several uniformed FBI agents proceeding into the building Tuesday morning. Local journalist Luis Guardiola noted in a tweet that dozens of FBI agents were involved in the raid.
A spokesman for the agency told news service elnuevodia.com that Tuesday’s raid was related to an ongoing investigation into whether the mayor’s office and other city officials had shown favoritism when the city agreed to a contract with the company BR Solutions for $4.7 million over two years.

Any honest person knows the government of Puerto Rico is corrupt. It’s time to either make them a state, so that they must live up to U.S. standards and oversight, or cut them loose, so they are completely on their own.
