Quintana Roo: PRI governor left with a 600 percent increase in debt

The PRI's Roberto Borge Angulo won the 2010 gubernatorial elections in Quintana Roo, and given the explosion of the state's debt under the previous government, it should hardly be a surprise: Félix González Canto, the former governor, left the state with a debt 600 percent higher than when he came to power in 2005.

(González Canto, to recall, is the one with a just extraordinary luck in state lotteries)

According to PAN, who is conducting an investigation in the local legislature, most of the debt stems from a massive expansion of the state bureaucracy. The known debt so far went from 1.2 to 8 billion pesos.
