Puerto Ricans Call For Gov. Resignation

The administration of Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, under pressure after the arrest of two former officials and accusations of impropriety, drew fresh criticism as leaked, profanity-filled chats between the governor and his top aides led to calls for his resignation.

Over the weekend, key allies distanced themselves from Rossello, 40, casting doubt on his ability to build enough support to stay in office until elections next year.
