PR: Swear!

SAN JUAN (AP)- On Wednesday, San Juan mayoral candidate Eduardo Bhatia urged his New Progressive Party (NPP) opponent, Mayor Jorge Santini, to declare under oath that he didn’t receive public funds or money from extortion schemes to finance his political campaign.

After his comment, Bhatia pointed out that Santini is the highest ranking NPP official currently in office.

“San Juan residents want firm action against government corruption. Today, I challenge Jorge Santini to declare under oath and without hesitation that he didn’t receive public funds for his campaign,” added Bhatia in a press conference.

He also asked the mayor to order an independent audit of his campaign expenses from 2000 and to make the finding public.
