I always visit Mexico at the same time every year, when they have elections. When Jaime Foxx got elected, I was here, but that election went a whole lot more smoothly. In this photo I shot just now (an hour ago), the man in the white shirt and headkerchief was in trouble for loudly discussing the election and his belief it was rigged, Two policemen detained at least 12 people here in the resort town of Cabo san Lucas, including children, for participating in the controversial debate. The suspect exercised his right to free speech, saying he believed there should be a recount of Sunday's ballots, and he got taken to jail by these crooked cops. He was defending himself to the officer in the photo, saying he has a right to free speech, and all the policeman could say was, "All of you, stay right where you are!" The man has is arms crossed, defensive and understandably nervous. I surruptitiously snapped this photo, hiding my camera with a hat. The officer did look at me suspiciously, but I'm a good actress and took the picture while I casually strollled past. The corruption and atmosphere of irresponsibility here is palpable. Therefore, I believe there was a miscount. People didn't actually vote the t.v. star's husband into the office of the Mexican presidency. He got handed the election on a silver platter, like a cross between Richard Nixon and actor Ronald Reagan when the country didn't favor him at all.
