Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló resigns amid a torrent of protests over vulgar, mean-spirited texting conversations
The resignation late Wednesday comes after tens of thousands of residents have shut down streets in more than a week of protests, demanding the governor step down. Leaked vulgar text messages authored by Rosselló intensified anger and frustration by residents over government corruption, a 13-year recession, a debt crisis and a slow recovery from 2017’s Hurricane Maria.

This is no surprise; politicians will have these secret sides in them and until they're caught a lot of people would think they have done nothing wrong. It's the concept of innocent til proven guilty!
