Lots of politicians have ties to narcos, Blanco says, but not him.

CUERNAVACA, MORELOS | OEM.- Morelos Governor Cuauhtémoc Blanco has accused some 50 past and present politicians and officials, including his predecessor, of belonging to a narco-political network in the small central Mexico state.

Two weeks after a photograph surfaced in which he appears with three alleged narcos, Blanco went to the federal Attorney General’s Office (FGR) on Monday to denounce a “dirty war” against him and accuse numerous municipal, state, and federal politicians of being complicit with organized crime.

Among those he pointed his finger at were former governor Graco Ramírez, ex-Morelos police chief Alberto Capella, former deputy security minister Francisco Viruete and current federal Senator Ángel García Yáñez. Capella and Viruete served in Ramírez’s 2012-18 government.
