Talk about pissing money up against the wall. These groups exists, only to make money and represent no one other than a guy and his wife, a wife and her husband – sometimes only one, because the other has her/his own political party.

The Toyota dealership should be happy.

After all, what Haitian politician is complete without  land Cruiser, siren, claxon, blinking lights and an arrogant chauffeur?
