The legislator said she is victim of a scam, since political party MORENA used her as an alibi to hide irregularities

Eva Cadena, local deputy who was captured on video receiving money for far-left National Regeneration Party (MORENA), said that the bonuses that the legislators of that party in the state of Veracruz supposedly did not receive, are used to finance the tours of Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

However, the legislator did not cite the leader of MORENA by name.

“MORENA operates with the same practices as the rest of the other political parties,” Cadena said at a press conference, where also stated she will file a complaint for “irregular public financing of campaigns in Veracruz.”

The congresswoman said that the coordinator of MORENA in the Chamber of Deputies, Rocío Nahle, is the financial operator of Andres Manuel López Obrador, and that after the videos where she appears receiving half a million pesos in cash were made public, she spoke with the federal deputy, who told Cadena to detach herself from AMLO, and refrain from mentioning his name at any time.

In a press conference, the legislator – subject to a process of immunity removal – said she is the victim of a plot, because MORENA used her as an alibi to hide the irregularities that the party commits to seek resources additional to public funding.

“The financing of parties does not comply with what the law determines. In the Congress of Veracruz, the bonuses that are supposedly not received by the deputies of MORENA, are received, and they are used to finance the activities and visits of López Obrador.”

She said that those resources have an irregular origin and are used discreetly thus they are not reported to INE’s (Instituto Nacional Electoral) electoral authorities.

She also noted that the public resources received by MORENA’s Coordinator at the Congress of Veracruz, Amado Cruz Malpica, are used to pay “ghost” advisers who are actually candidates in the current electoral process.

However, when asked about the name of the person who handed her the 500,000 pesos, Cadena said she did not remember and that it would be the Prosecutor’s Office of Veracruz that discloses that person’s identity.
