By Fausta's Blog on April 15, 2014
Well, after Mary O’Grady wrote about Panama’s President Ricardo Martinelli choosing his wife to run for vice-president, Martinelli tweeted, “This WSJ journalist once interviewed me because she was a close friend of Jimmy Papadimitriu, who now advises Varela,” Una vez la misma periodista del WSJ me entrevisto ya que era intima amiga de Jimmy Papadimitriu que ahora asesora a Varela. — Ricardo Martinelli (@rmartinelli) April 14, 2014 The WSJ didn’t take the tweet sitting down: He is referring to Juan Carlos Varela, who is Mr. Martinelli’s vice president and former foreign minister. . . .
