Eruviel Ávila Villegas officially assumed as governor of Mexico State today, after an event yesterday with more than 2,000 "specially invited" guests.
How natural that they include former disgraced governor Arturo Montiel, infamous for the corruption and theft during his government, and the man who made sure that his successor in 2005 would be Enrique Peña Nieto.
Peña Nieto, to recall, didn't lift a finger against Montiel or launch any investigation at all, even though his corruption, when it became known, largely sank his shot at becoming PRI's presidential candidate in 2006.
Now Montiel appears, having avoided the public for six years, to fittingly see off his creation, who is now set on winning the Mexican president.
Montiel received a standing ovation from the crowd.
