I've been staying in Baltimore recently on my trips to D.C. (wonderful city & easy commute). My favorite spot is the state's memorial honoring George Washington who lead the Continental Army for 8 years to defeat the British. Such courage to lead an unformed nation for so long.

Let me be straightforward in my accusation here. I would suggest OBoard has done almost nothing to address corruption in Puerto Rico Treasury because OB Chair Jose Carrion & other PR elites have accrued substantial benefits as the islands largest taxpayers. I am wrong? #muniland

It's been alleged for years that Puerto Rico Treasury is rotten (ie no list of tax credits & cash subsidies, reduced tax bills for favored parties, lack of tax enforcement). Unclear how OBoard presumes to project revenues w/ massive corruption #muniland

Inbox: "Remember that these acts of corruption under FBI investigation have transpired under OBoard rule. That is worth noting in the confirmation hearings. Add to that potential hedge fund collusion to invalidate GOs and profit from that potential mkt manipulation." #muniland

can someone explain why kirpalani s hedge funds allegedly holding 3 billion of go pba par will be represented
Can someone explain why Kirpalani's hedge funds (allegedly holding $3 billion of GO/PBA par) will be represented by **10** attorneys at June 28th hearing? I guess they have to defend their privately negotiated RSA with OB? PR fiscal agency AFFAF will have 7 attorneys #muniland

Hein filing essentially accuses OBoard & Kirpalani HFs of conspiring, excluding other bondholders (no notice of negotiation), giving Kirpalani's guys $100s of millions exorbitant fees. Everyone fixated on govt corruption but this is 10 x bigger #muniland

I'm going to state this everyday: US multinationals operate in Puerto Rico and generate +$40 billion of net income there. PR govt taxes them < 4% on this income & companies get to credit 80% of that to their federal taxes. PR is the only bankrupt tax haven in the world #muniland
