Corruption allegations still dog First Lady Rivera

Agelica RiveraNPR – Eight months ago, Mexico’s first lady, Angélica Rivera, known for her fondness of designer clothes and European vacations, made a public promise to sell a multimillion-dollar mansion bought under controversial circumstances. She purchased the home, at below market rates, from a contractor with lucrative connections to her husband.

The scandal has been one of the biggest to rock President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration. Months later, many questions remain regarding the purchase — and Rivera has yet to sell the house.
