After a meeting earlier today with Marcelo Ebrard, Rafael Acosta announced that after being sworn in as Iztapalapa delegation chief later this week, he will go on a 59-day hiatus, during which time Clara Brugada will run the show. Presumably, she will continue running said show on day 60, 61, 62, et cetera, as well. Laughably, Acosta said that the reason for his stepping down was his health. I should also point out that, contra my supposition last week, Ebrard actually comes out looking rather statesmanlike.
