Puerto Rico Fires Two More Officials After Hurricane Maria Aid Found Unused
Puerto Rico fires two more officials after Hurricane Maria aid found unused amid the current earthquake aftermath.
Pallets of bedding, food, and medical supplies went unused in a warehouse for more than two years while Puerto Ricans suffered through the aftermath of a devastating hurricane.
The aid was sent.
And it sat for years in warehouses—never making it to the people in need. Puerto Rico fires two more officials after Hurricane Maria aid found unused amid current earthquake aftermathhttps://t.co/BXqUkKN6N5

The pallets of bedding, food and medical supplies sat wrapped in plastic and unused in a warehouse for more than two years while Puerto Ricans suffered through the aftermath of a devastating hurricane and, recently, an earthquake. Now their discovery has triggered a political firestorm.
On Sunday, Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez fired two more officials in the most recent development since anger broke out over a viral video showing unused emergency supplies – allegedly left-over aid from Hurricane Maria – sitting in a warehouse in the southern coastal city of Ponce.
“There are thousands of people who made sacrifices to bring aid to the south and it’s unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse,” the governor’s initial statement said.
In Ponce, thousands remain in shelters since a 6.4 magnitude quake struck the island two weeks ago. More
@POTUS was right !

Democrats went crazy blaming President Trump when the feds delivered ample supplies but the local folks shanghaied the aid. This is a bigger scandal than anything manufactured by the Democrats and it’s not getting the MSM attention because it vindicates President Trump
Fired but never prosecuted, reminds me of a song with lyrics, Take the Money & run.
PR politican’s have been stealing aid from American taxpayers for years while leaving the island w/ third world electrical grid, horrible roads & poor emergency response.
