  • Street vendor “elected” borough delegate in rough Mexico City hood, “Juanito,” forced to resign. “Juanito”  got “elected” by some people, but only if he resigned shortly after, so somebody else, who wanted that job but couldn’t have it at that point for some reason, could take it. But then “Juanito” decided to stay in the job, and then the same people who put him there were angry,  so he took a leave of absence, but then he returned to the job again. In any event, he falsified his birth certificate and now is gone. The end? LAT.
