Roxana Baldetti, Vice-President of Guatemala, resigns

Mike Allison over at Central American Politics has the story and he covers both the main event and the background very nicely in this post. Excerpt:
"The big event of the day, however, was the resignation of Vice President Baldetti. She has yet to be formally accused of any involvement in the corruption scandal but I assume that's only a matter of time. At best, her private secretary oversaw the looting of $100 million from the people of Guatemala right under her nose. I'm not sure anyone can seriously believe that to be the case. She has been connected to unexplained wealth for the entire term."
