Drug Lords Seek To Buy The Country
by James Dunnigan
April 26, 2012

Security officials are deeply concerned about drug cartel money corrupting the upcoming elections. Analysts argue that this is the route the powerful cartels are taking, that is, electing leaders who will leave them alone. Still, stories crop up in the Mexican, U.S., and Canadian press discussing the possibility of a drug cartel political take-over using violent means. A cartel would seize and hold territory against a counter-attack by the army. However, the question to ask is, if they buy a state governor and two-dozen mayors in the state and the new president decides he doesn’t want to use the military to fight the cartels, why bother with a shooting war? That’s why the 2012 presidential election matters to the cartels.
