    It depresses me to think how this country can produce such a string of laughable, egotistical, corrupt individuals to run the country. It must be in the Guiness book of records. Give it a couple of years and the Kirchner clan will be in court too.

    Some mother do have them,

    the world is full of corruption, some more than others,
    but as long as they are punished when they are found,
    then justice is hopefully seen to be done..

    This is a perfect example of why so many SA dictators, er President for life er Presidential Dynasties cling to power for as long as possible.
    They're all dirty scumbags and they know as soon as they leave office they'll be prosecuted or dead.
    The Ks are the dirtiest scumbags Argentina has seen in many many years.

    I wont put my hands in the fire for her but this is just another case of the Kirchnerists giving the left their political corpes to fest upon as there is no more generals left most are dead some are too old and others are joining the Kirchners like Milani they are now after the 1990s emblematic officials like Cavallo and MJ Alsogaray-

    There is plenty of former Menemist allies that are now hand in hand with the gov't that have being involved in corruption...Curious that corruption for the Ks and the lefts is involved in the privatization of State companies but not the administration and nationalization of the companies by the State.
