Mexican president draws US into dispute over Tamaulipas governor

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico has made little headway defusing a bizarre standoff over the possible arrest of a a sitting state governor facing charges of tax evasion, money laundering and organized crime.

But President Andrés Manuel López Obrador made one thing clear Thursday: Any diplomatic documents the United States sends to Mexico are at risk of being published by the president himself.

Mexico is already facing questions about the clarity of its legal system, and doubts about whether the U.S. can continue to share intelligence with Mexican officials. But this week’s dispute over border state Gov. Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca threatens to do damage on both fronts.

A disagreement between courts, prosecutors and state and federal legislatures make it unclear whether the Tamaulipas state governor can be arrested, or whether he still enjoys immunity from prosecution as an elected official.

1. It's good to see more information on what is happening with this sleazy governor!

Looking for a photo of him to post, found this whole article which states Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca graduated from McAllen High School in Texas. So wierd! That would mean he has all kinds of US allies, no doubt at all!

“I have no links to organized crime.” Yikes.

Here is the article, from Texasborderbusiness.com. Unfortunately no part of it will copy or paste, but there are some very odd photos of Garcia Cabeza de Vaca and his cronies:


Found a photo of Texas Senator John Cronyn with 3 of Garcia Cabeza de Vaca's cronies!

Accompanying article:


So now we see what kind of people are his contacts, too. Interesting.

This situation could get even stranger, right? Wow.

Thanks for the information.

2. You're welcome. This is a story that is worth watching.

I think that some Texas officials could be implicated so have some popcorn ready.
