Embattled Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló resigns amid public outcry

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced his resignation Wednesday days after demonstrators at the island’s largest protest in recent history called for his ouster over a scandal involving leaked private chats, as well as corruption investigations and arrests.

His resignation, effective Aug. 2, came late Wednesday night on a recorded video published on Facebook. In the message, he touted what he considered accomplishments of his tenure, saying he fought corruption and made strides for different communities.

“My only North Star has been the well-being of my island,” he said.

Crowds in the streets, which for almost two weeks had been calling for the governor to step down, immediately erupted in joyous chants, cheering “Puerto Rico! Puerto Rico!”

‘Chatgate’ scandal could doom Puerto Rico governor Ricardo Rosselló

Nearly two years ago, Hurricane María exposed the raw dysfunction of Puerto Rico, collapsing long-neglected infrastructure and leaving several thousand dead on Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s watch.

Skeptics Washed Away As Lost Civilization Is Finally Identified By Puerto Rican Figures

A collection of highly-controversial stone figures discovered in Puerto Rico are believed by some to have been created by members of the lost Ten Tribes of Israel and by others as hoaxes, but these long forgotten mysterious artifacts have now been ‘validated’ as being 16th century, finally proving scores of skeptics have all been wrong, and that these are not Biblical treasures .

According to a press release by the University of Haifa in Puerto Rico, the collection of curious carved stone objects have been restudied by Professor Reniel Rodríguez Ramos who revived research into their origins in 2001. Using Dr. Groman-Yaroslavsky’s university ‘Use-Wear Analysis Laboratory’ which specializes in determining when various objects were created, Dr. Ramos has confirmed that the objects were carved in the 16th century and provided evidence that some them were coated in gold and red paint, hinting towards their original applications.
