Pesos in the Mornin’, Pesos in the Evenin’

Pesos at suppertime!
While you’re hiding pesos,
Don’t forget that they are mine!

A Chinese-Mexican businessman charged in the largest drug-related cash seizure in history accused a top Mexican official of forcing him to stash millions in illicit campaign funds in the walls and closets of his Mexico City mansion.
In the first major accusation linking the administration of President Felipe Calderon to Mexico’s drug underworld, Zhenli Ye Gon claims Javier Lozano Alarcon, now Mexico’s labor secretary, threatened to kill him unless he stored duffel bags stuffed with at least $150 million.
In a written response Monday to The Associated Press, Lozano Alarcon denied the accusations and said he was considering a defamation lawsuit against Ye Gon.
Ye Gon is charged in Mexico with drug trafficking, money laundering and weapons possession for his alleged role in illegally importing 19 tons of a pseudoephedrine compound used to make methamphetamine, charges he denies. He is presumably in the United States; Mexico considers him a fugitive.

Another worthy illegal who could have paid the fine! DAMN talk radio!

    This is exactly what you get for making Pseudoephedrine a controlled substance. Now the drug traffickers and gangsters are making money off of it instead of J&J. It’s prohibition all over again.
