The Photo Enrique Pena probably wishes didn't exist
|PRI Buds: The disgraced former Governor with Mexico's likely next president|
Distancing himself from Yarrington:
The PRI's candidate for president, Enrique Pena Nieto, has a 20 pt lead in the polls for the July 1 vote but is fighting off attacks from rivals who say a win for the party that ruled for seven decades would be a return to Mexico's corrupt past.
"The party is not responsible for this," Pena Nieto said on Wednesday when asked about the Yarrington case. "The law should be upheld."
According to the DEA complaint in Texas: Pena-Arguelles' older brother Alfonso was found slain by a monument in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, last year. Next to his body was a banner accusing Antonio Pena-Arguelles of stealing $5 million from the Zetas. DEA informants said the money had been intended to buy the Zetas influence in the Tamaulipas government through Yarrington's connections.
In the complaint : On the morning of his brother's death, Antonio Pena-Arguelles received a cellphone text message from Trevino, the Zetas' No. 2, accusing him, Yarrington and the head of the Gulf cartel, Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sanchez, of orchestrating Torre's slaying.
