The resignation of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló has brought further instability to the government of Puerto Rico. It is imperative that a stabilization plan be immediately implemented for the government of Puerto Rico. There are four components for a stabilization plan for the government of Puerto Rico: (1) address the corruption of the Rosselló administration; (2) implement anti-corruption legislation or regulations concerning the disbursement of federal funds to Puerto Rico; and (3) the addition of a group of non-partisan senior advisors to stabilize the government of Puerto Rico. Absent an effective stabilization plan it is difficult for either the government of Puerto Rico to succeed or the PROMESA bankruptcy cases to succeed.

Federal Criminal Investigation of the Rosselló Administration. This is a unique opportunity for Puerto Rico to address its corruption problem. The outrage against the Rosselló administration has united Puerto Ricans against corruption. There were massive demonstrations in Puerto Rico that forced Gov. Rosselló to resign. Puerto Ricans now understand the harm that corruption does to Puerto Rico. There should be a federal criminal investigation of the Rosselló administration. The Secretary of Education and the Medicaid Director were recently indicted on federal corruption charges. Gov. Rosselló and members of his cabinet engaged in disturbing chat messages. The recently disclosed chat messages raise serious issues as to whether Gov. Rosselló obstructed the work of Federal Oversight Management Board and the federal police monitor. Equally important, did Gov. Rosselló conspire with his associates to physically harm his political adversaries? One of the text messages discussed killing the Mayor of San Juan, a political opponent of the Rosselló administration. Has the Rosselló administration engaged in federal civil rights violations? The people of Puerto Rico are entitled to an honest government. The people that engaged in public corruption should be held accountable.
