The day before the presidential debate, Ba Prov cabinet chief resigned over his luxury yacht trip in the Med, exposed by his new girlfriend when she posted pics on Instagram. That was rather dumb in the first place.
Anyway, the point here is where did he get the money to buy her expensive jewellery and a Rolex watch? Especially when his tax return showed around $600, 000 pesos, yet he was able to pay his ex-wife US$20 million in settlement earlier this year.
I don't care how people spend their own money, but this has a whiff about it, in spite of Kicillof saying that it's more of an ethical issue rather than illicit. But then he would say that.
The yacht is called El Bandido by the way, which is very fitting.
We all know that corruption is endemic in Argentina, especially in this province, but this takes it to another level.
I mentioned Sr Chocolate, who was freed without charge, so that rumbles on as well...
