AP Ignores Fact Indicted Puerto Rico Gov an Obama Superdelegate
Color me unsurprised.
The Associated Press, reporting the indictment of Puerto Rico Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila (pictured at right via AFP/Getty Images file photo) failed to note Vila is a Democrat, let alone that he is an Obama superdelegate.
But Vila's party affiliation is hardly a state secret. Indeed, ABC's Jake Tapper noted the Obama connection on his Political Punch blog this morning:
The Governor of Puerto Rico, Aníbal Acevedo Vilá, endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, in February as we were first to report.
And he was indicted today.
Puerto Rico's primary is scheduled for June 1.
