First Lady’s Florida home owned by government contractor

The Guardian – Mexico’s first lady is using a luxury property in Florida bought by a company that is expected to bid for lucrative government contracts, the Guardian has learned. Angelica Rivera, the wife of President Enrique Peña Nieto, is using the $2.05 million apartment in Key Biscayne, south of Miami Beach, with the apparent blessing of Grupo Pierdant, which is a contender to run Mexico’s ports.

The arrangements echo aspects of Rivera’s purchase of a $7 million mansion in Mexico City from another government contractor, the so-called Casa Blanca scandal.
