To help the mayor of Puerto Rico, shooting to international fame after the criticism of President trump for not doing enough to hurricane Maria, the victim is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news agencies.
San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly impeding critical supplies to the victims of category 4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny territory of the US for almost nine months.
The FBI reports of the investigation the following February launched a lawsuit Yadira Molina, the former head of the procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting the “alleged irregular actions”, the local control Committee.
“On February 21, Molina, the city Council sued after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping Department in the city hall of the city under the administration of mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.
“She comes out, goes on television and a Pat on the back.”

The report says Molina claims she was punished to report for the reporting on the allegedly manipulated the system and that it has been blocked in your law, “misconduct in their capacity as a private person, not as an employee.”
Shortly after Cruz mayor, it was claimed, Molina, is that a supply company has been granted “preferred supplier” status that they paid more than three times the regular supplier. She also claims that other officers of the city taxes in a corrupt System, the company the preferred supplier.
Concerns Cruz are not new. It was a growing backlash from frustrated residents who say they feel forgotten, and say, the mayor’s personal political ambitions come at the expense of the very people they claim to represent.
For example, at a time when the inhabitants needed food, water and shelter, Cruz hired extra photographers to follow her to post-storm.
“She comes out, goes on television and a Pat on the back,” Simon Menendez, owner of a small company in San Juan, told Fox News. “It’s not about us, a long time ago.”
A bartender in a popular hotel in the old town of San Juan, said Fox, it feels like a political figure. But the complaints of voters largely ignored.
Instead, Cruz’s feud with the President about the recovery efforts, your turned in to a liberal star, and it is a role that she seems to be enjoying. Its global close-up has the promotion to a parade of self -.
She appeared on numerous TV shows including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – and scored a high-profile charge, the state of the Union as a guest of New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
She was also featured on Time magazine as one of the most influential people in 2018.
Last month they traveled to get to Connecticut, the “Latina Champion” award at the Latinas & Power Symposium, promotes the Hispanic professional women. She then went on to get to Boston, the honorary doctorate and give the baccalaureate address at the University of Boston.
To say back home in Puerto Rico, the officials, the island is still in desperate need of help, and is completely unprepared for another storm should hit soon. Among other things, there is little to no water or diesel for generators. This year the hurricane season started on 1. June.
A new Harvard University study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the number of people who died in Puerto Rico estimates, as the result of Mary could top 4,600. The official number, issued by the U.S. territory is 64.
To reach several attempts by Cruz were unsuccessful.
An FBI spokesman said the Agency does not comment on ongoing investigations.
