So what if a former Tamaulipas governor is being accused of taking money from cartels? That doesn't necessarily mean that our representatives are also corrupt.
And documents in a criminal case in Texas allege that Yarrington, who worked hand in hand with his Texas counterparts during his career as state treasurer, governor, Mexican congressman and border mayor, was on the take from one of Mexico's most notorious drug cartels.
Still, if Mr. Yarrington is found guilty, the picture above is a perfect example of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer.
Thanks to the blog reader who gave me a heads up on this story.
