Evo denounces “USAID campaign” in Bolivia


We already knew that Manfred Reyes Villa and Leopoldo Fernández were a pair of slimeballs, but now we know what bag they come out of, too. Not only has SOUTHCOM been financing them, but USAID is apparently in on it too. Let Evo fill you in:

The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, denounced on Sunday that USAID is financing the electoral campaigns of opposition ex-prefects Manfred Reyes Villa and Leopoldo Fernández.

“I want people to know that this Manfred-Leopoldo ticket is a USAID campaign,” said Morales during an interview on Bolivian television.

The ex-prefect of Cochabamba, Reyes Villa, and of Pando, Fernández, have forged various alliances within the opposition after other candidates have declined to go up against Morales and his vice-president, Alvaro García Linera, who are seeking re-election for the 2010-2014 period.

Translation mine.

Well, this would undoubtedly explain why Germán Antelo, Tuto Quiroga, Jimena Costa and Víctor Hugo Cárdenas have all bowed out so far. And these guys were all nowhere near as slimy as Manfred and Leopoldo, BTW (though certainly slimy enough all in their own rights.) This also probably explains why two such obvious losers would think they had a shot, instead of doing what any sane person would: pack it in and get a normal day job.

At this rate, they are guaranteed to lose even more power. Manfred Reyes Villa was impeached by the people of Cochabamba, and Leopoldo Fernández is in jail, awaiting trial for the massacre at Porvenir.

If the Bolivian oppos can’t field an honest, non-criminal candidate, they deserve what they get. And so do their US backers.

  1. Nice little march they had going there. Must have killed them to not have anybody to attack at the Public Ministry building. And what’s with all the bodyguards hustling the “leaders” away? I thought this march was supposed to be against all the evil Chavista censorship. So a bunch of Chavista reporters goes out to let them have their say, and they got nuttin’ to say?
    (PS: Doesn’t Carvajalino look cute in his bulletproof vest?)

    They all look cute. Amorin looks cute in his new haircut, Carvajalino and Echeverri were always cute 🙂 I thought the Lozano lady and the drunk guy were hilarious!
    There’s a Carvajalino-Echeverri video on the web somewhere, with Carvajalino cross-dressed.

  3. Yeah, Amorín’s new scruffy cut suits him. And yep, the other two would be cute even in potato sacks. LOL!
    That Jesus-freak woman had me rolling all over the floor. I wonder if she was really crazy, or just a plant.
