Yet another Guanajuato functionary steps down after "irregularities"

Jorge Armado Aguirre Torres was until he was removed this week ecretary of health in the Guanajuato state administration. After "irregularities" was detected in the managing of the Seguro Popular, the health insurance program for the poorest Mexicans without a job-provided health insurance in the formal sector, Aguirre Torres became the eighth state official of secretary rank to step down in the four years since Juan Manuel Oliva became the governor of Guanajuato.

Juan Manuel Oliva has been embroiled in a wide range of very dirty scandals the past months - read more here and here - that directly implicate the yunquista governor. As ever more attention is put on his scandal-ridden government, expect more stories to surface the coming months.
