    Small potatoes.

    TWIMC...
    Very small potatoes indeed....
    And most of them rottenly tendentious...

    For example.., the article says..:
    “Lazaro Baez, a bank clerk ten years ago, turned into a public works tycoon.”
    .....Well..., I dislike this man with a passion... but he was a bank clerk in 1980..., that is 38 years ago...
    In the year 2000, that is 16 years ago, he had climbed the ladder to be one of the directors of the same bank...
    First at that point he started his career as a corrupt “Public Works Tycoon”

    The article also mentions several times Mr. Baez's...: “fifteen luxury and collection cars, his passion.”
    “Luxury and collection cars”???
    ...Well..., his collection of “luxury” cars just confirm all the bad vibes I have with this guy...
    Just look at the ugly rims and indecent pink paintwork he comitted on that poor, defenceless Fiat 128...!!!
    Just for that..., he deserves life...!!!

    They will get there, they are not being hampered by the president in the manner TMBOA did when she 'ruled' the country.

    I still think the result is likely to be a small caliber gunshot to her head, ala Nisman and the sooner the better.

    This is all very encouraging.
    Putting Mrs Kirchner behind bars for the rest of her natural life should be a patriotic duty for all Argentines.

    @12 Luci / Fred

    You're correct - “Chronic” is NOT Fred.

    I mistook his inane comments for your own.

    Fred Bates is YB and Lucifer - the same operator.

    “Chronic” is not even American.

    I barely look at the posters name these days...

    @17 “There are reports that the Penguins mausoleum is also under investigation”

    Good. I'd want to know,

    1. Is there money stored there?
    2. If so, why?
    3. Is his body actually there?
    4. If not, why? Where is it?
    5. If yes, how did he die? There was, I believe, (unusually) no open coffin for his funeral. Why? Did he do a Nisman? Did he manage to get a bullet or two lodged in his brain when he “fell”?

    Could be interesting to see how this one develops...

    @22 Lots of cases in the works, the question is making them stick. The justice system is full of judges appointed by the Kirchners.
