Mexican politician of the year: 2013

2 January 2014

Candigato Morris, an independent candidate for Presidente Municipal in Xalapa, Veracruz, not only inspired a slew of other domestic animals to run for public office (dogs, cats and burros received an unprecedented number of votes in municipal and state elections around the country), he acquired an international following for his simple campaign promise to “clean out the rats” at the Municipal Palace.   Without a doubt, he’s the only local polico in Mexico to acquire an international following, and one of the few not to make an international media story  for not committing a crime.
