Pablo Salazar, a Mexican Mandela?

With virtually no one leaping to his defense, former governor (2000-2006) Pablo Salazar Mendiguchí declared he would launch a hunger strike, and leave prison either dead or freed of charges, in response to his arrest on corruption and embezzlement charges.

Not only that: His choice of reading material in prison, according to his attorney, was Nelson Mandela's autobiography.

Now that's a bit rich, señor gobernador.

Worth reading is also Carlos Loret de Mola´s column, which suggests that Los Pinos was well informed of the alleged "danger" of Salazar to current Governor Juan Sabines, in a letter attributed to Sabines himself, who, to recall, was Salazar´s one-time protégé.
