Summary

Sign up here.A leaked chat full of memes and misogyny has rocked the Puerto Rican political establishment and led to calls for the island’s governor to resign. In one message, they referred to a Puerto Rican journalist as a “mamabicho,” which translates loosely to “dicksucker.” One of Rosselló's advisers asked another member of the group chat to make a gif of San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz “dancing and screaming like a crazy woman.” “I am salivating to shoot her,” Christian Sobrino, the island’s now-former chief financial officer, who resigned on Saturday, shortly after the messages were made public.VICE News has not independently verified the authenticity of the messages. “They defrauded the U.S. and Puerto Rican governments.” The scandal rocked the Puerto Rican political scene hard enough for Rosselló to cut a European vacation short and fly back to the island — just in time for another scandal to break.Cover image: In this Nov. 13, 2017 file photo, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello speaks during a news conference, in Washington.
