Mexico's Man Of The People Is Apparently Wealthier Than He Let On
Presidential contender Andrés Manuel López Obrador may own valuable property despite claiming to be pretty impoverished.By Ryan Biek | September 28, 2016
Running for president, in any country, is hard. It's even harder if your financial information works against you.
Just ask Andrés Manuel López Obrador. He's the leading contender for the 2018 Mexican presidential election. He's also presented himself as a man of the people. Except, he may have failed to disclose that he owns some pretty valuable property.
The left-wing politician declared his assets in August and basically said he was in poverty. He noted he didn't have a credit card — or even a checking account — and claimed he only made $31,000 a year. He also said he didn't own any property.
