Name That Party In Puerto Rico

I realize I'm trampling on Fausta's turf here but I'm sure she'll excuse me. Dan sent me this link about Puerto Rico's soon to be ex-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.

Hmmmm. There appears to be sumpin' missing from this story. What could it be? I'm drawing a blank here. Oh! I know! Is this dooshbag a Dimocrat or is he a Dimocrat?

Along with Acevedo, Robert M. Feldman, who raised more than $1 million for Democrats, including U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. and Gov. Rendell.

The unnamed party of choice!

Democratic Malfeasance.....

I`m shocked! particulary with seeing the names of Robert Casey the Democratic Senator from Pennsylvania & Fast Eddie Rendell the Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania in the Story. No, I am not really shocked.

Actually before the Chicago sewer system spewed forth the Obama Sewage slide , Pennsylvania was running neck & neck with New Jersey for the most corrupt Democratic political machine.

This is what is coming to your town everywhere in the country, get used to it & remember it is being brought to you by the Democratic Party.

They're very similar. In fact, the PPD sends delegates to the Democrat conventions only: never to the Republicans'.
