  1. The first honest politician since Jimmy Carter.

  2. The other day on the radio I heard the many issues with the Order of Succession in the Puerto Rico governorship troubles. People ineligible all the way down the chain for one reason or the other.

    It reminded me of the Battlestar Galactica opener, where the top ranks were all wiped out and the presidency went to the Secretary of Education.

    Except in Puerto Rico’s case, the likely successor is even below the Secretary of Education.

  3. Which means she’s perfect for the job.

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/455074-official-expected-to-be-next-puerto-rico-governor-says-she) reduced by 46%. (I’m a bot)
    > Puerto Rico Justice Secretary Wanda Vasquez, who was set to succeed embattled Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello at the end of the week, said Sunday she does not want the job.

    > ADVERTISEMENT. Puerto Rico's secretary of state is above the Justice secretary in the order of succession, but the island has not filled the position since former Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marín resigned over his participation, along with Rossello, in a group chat featuring homophobic and misogynistic language that also mocked the victims of Hurricane Maria, according to the Associated Press.

    > The millions of protesters who have filled the streets in recent weeks calling for Rossello's ouster have also called for Vasquez to step down, with #WandaRenuncia trending on Twitter along with #RickyRenuncia, the hashtag used by activists urging Rossello's resignation.
