Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló resigns amid leaked chat scandal
[Washington Examiner] The embattled governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rosselló announced he is resigning amid protests calling for him to leave office. Rosselló came under fire after more than 900 pages of chats between the governor and other Puerto Rico officials were leaked, revealing a pattern of incendiary language that took place over several years.

Rosselló's resignation is effective Aug. 2, he announced on a video message just before midnight Wednesday evening.

"My only North Star has been the well-being of my island," Rosselló said in Spanish. "What I wish most is peace and progress for my people."

Celebrations broke out on the streets of San Juan after people heard the announcement. "Ricky, te botamos!" the revelers cheered, which translates to "Ricky, we threw you out!"

#2 Will he be succeeded by San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who is arguably even more incompetent and corrupt?
