Puerto Rico problem for Obama

From NBC's Chuck Todd
The Obama campaign's hopes of winning the 6/1 Puerto Rico primary might have been dealt a serious blow with this news, as reported by the New York Times: "Aníbal S. Acevedo Vilá, the governor of Puerto Rico,
has been charged with 19 criminal counts related to the financing of
three political campaigns from 1999 to 2004, including conspiracy to
violate federal campaign laws, wire fraud and illegally using campaign
funds for his personal use, according to a federal indictment unsealed
on Thursday."

Obama was endorsed by Acevedo Vila last month.
