UPI 'Conveniently' Neglects Party Label Mention of Indicted Puerto Rico Governor
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Dec 29, 2008 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Puerto Rico's governor, indicted on corruption charges, posted a video on the popular social networking site Facebook admitting to making mistakes.
During the four-minute video, Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila apologized to Puerto Ricans saying he "committed errors." However, he did not address specific charges against him or admit to any criminal wrongdoing, according to the video posted Sunday.A federal indictment handed down earlier this year accused the Puerto Rican governor of conspiracy to violate federal campaign laws and lying to the FBI, among other charges.Acevedo, who was voted out of office last month, faces trial in February.
Today, while reviewing what we have faced together, I am convinced that although I have committed errors like all human beings, I have always tried to do what was right and correct for love of Puerto Rico....For many adversaries, their main objective was to harm me without weighing consideration of the harmful consequences for the country. Fortunately I also found adversaries willing to work with me in putting Puerto Rico first and demonstrating that we could achieve more together....Your support is my strength.
