More Details on El Equipo

Well, this is embarrassing:
The Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) paid Televisa 118,116,880 pesos [about $10 million] for the production of 13 episodes of El Equipo.

According to a contract turned over to El Universal by the SSP, obtained through the Federal Transparency Law, the agency requested that Televisa put together a series in June of 2010, at which point the head of the federal SSP, Genaro García Luna, already had the money authorized through fund 3701 and with the authorization of the agency's Committee of Acquisitions, Contracts, and Services.
It's almost more embarrassing for Televisa--I'm not surprised García Luna wanted to do this, but shouldn't they be a filter for such ploys?
