PRI, Peña Nieto and Yarrington in 1 minute

While PRI and Peña Nieto run feverishly to distance themselves from Tomas Yarrington, governor of Tamaulipas from 1999 to 2004 and accused of laundering money for the Gulf and/or Zeta mafia, pictures do speak a thousands word, such as the inconvenient photo of Enrique Peña Nieto with the disgraced governor  (h/t Tim Johnson), pasted below.

Here is also a 1-minute YouTube video expanding on the Peña Nieto-Yarrington-PRI relationship that is well worth your time, where the PRI's 2012 candidate defends Yarrington of the accusations - before it all blew up a day or two ago, that is: Peña Nieto defiende a Yarrington.

(On another note: I just came back from a panel at the 2012 LASA conference in San Francisco, where John Ackerman suggested that Peña Nieto is the preferred candidate of the U.S. government. How ironic that the State Department, through its spokesperson Victoria Nuland, yesterday came out denying it had any intention to interfere in the election - but against EPN).
