Vacation paradise Three assassins gunned down
José Trinidad Carvajal Núñez, a PRDist who had previously been the municipal director of a town in the state of Guerrero. A diesel tanker truck overturned
and spilled about 6

Leon was gunned down.

There's a complex set of scandals involving a businessmen, PRIist Senator Emilio Gamboa, and PANista political figures. I'm not sure I can do the story justice, but here goes: A telephone conversation
between Emilio Gamboa Patrón and entrepreneur Kamel Nacif Borge was intercepted, as well as a second between Borge and the governor of Veracruz. Gamboa is in the doghouse
for attending a meeting with President Select: FeCal Enojoso
It's not clear whether Gamboa and Nacif should be indicted for corruption or phone sex, but they ought to be busted for something. Here's a rough translation of the first:
Emilio Gamboa (EG): Daddykins, where are you, you old SOB?
Kamel Nacif (KN): Well, I'm here in friggin' demonville, Dad
EG: But where are you, my king? Because one [Gamboa?] talks well of you all day and you vanish, you son of a f--k.
KN: Well, I am going f--king along, nothing else.
EG: But are you ok?
KN: Well, hey, while I'm alive, I'm ok.
EG: No, no, no, but are you WELL?
KN: Yes, my king.
EG: Yeah, well take care of yourself, you son of a b---h and we'll see you soon.
KN: And how are you, Senator.
EG: Oh, a real mother, throwing a dinner with some Senators, which if I told you there (inaudible) son of a b----h.
EG: We're going to remove the reform of the racetrack, son of a b---h, now , now not of the game... of the racetrack.
EG: To play games there, son of a b----h.
KN: Huh? Ok.
EG: How do you see it?
KN: No, don't f---k it up
EG: Well, then, whatever you say, SOB, there we go, SOB.
KN: No, toss it, Dad
EG: We, ok, we'll toss it. This f---king thing will never pass the Senate.
EG: I send you my affection.
KN: When will we see one another?
EG: Whenever you want, my little Kamel.
KN: Well, whenever you say. Huh?
EG: Returning, I am going to Washington to see some b-----ds, but I'll see you on the way back.
KN: When do you go to Washington
EG: I go Sunday... Saturnday, and return Tuesday at 11PM
KN:Well, let's see if we can get together Wednesday
EG: I'll call you on my way back, believe me, I'll call you. Don't call me now, I;ll call you, my friend.
KN: High fives, Senator.
KN: Be well. Bye.
The second is with the governor of Veracruz, Fidel Herrera:
Fidel Herrera (FH): Great friend and protector, how are you?
Kamel Nacif (KN). What's shaking, my distinguished Senator [sic]?
FH. Good, but very much on tenterhooks, although I haven't seen you I;ve been involved in everything you've been doing well, there, the Monterey stuff, that, eeeh Kamel. Those sons of b----hes They....
KN. What has happened with you?
FH. Listen up: working for our cause. Oddly today I was talking with Gamboa, at his side I was saying that I wanted to move directly with you, because now I need to see you, because the matters of the state now are landing upon us, now in days.
KN. Well, whenever you like, we can see one another, my distinguished Senator
FH. Great. Listen, buddy, I am at your service. Didn't they offer you anything today?
KN. Nope, just checking in.
FH. Yessir, I'll talk with your seccy tomorrow to set a date, right? Or if you can give me one now?
KN. Whatever day you like, to me, don't say "date," for you the day which you like.
FH. Ah, great. Ok, bud.
FH. Yes, yes, yes. Well, ok, well if you like, you'll be in Mexico on Monday?
KN. Monday in Mexico? Tuesday. You want the Suntori?
FH. The Suntori or the east, or wherever you say. Lessee, wait... the teacher Gamboa is telling me that he can't do it on Tueday, that I have to go with him. Can't you have dinner on Tuesday?
KN. How about La Hacienda at 9:30PM?
FH. Go for it: La Hacienda of the Morales.
KN. Anything, a change, call me please.
FH. No, it won't happen. Emilio is stopping by and wants to say hello.
KN. Pass me over to Don Emiliano.
The PANistas are not distressed by the corruption, but are distressed
at having their phone conversations intercepted.
