Puerto Rican CEO Who Trashed Corrupt Island Government – Receives Death Threats, Hires Armed Guard (VIDEO)
Last week Puerto Rican Harvard-educated CEO Jorege Rodriquez wrote an opinion piece in the New York Post exposing the corrupt Puerto Rican government. Rodriquez barred any of his employees from working on any projects that involved local government officials, citing corruption and mismanagement.

Jorge was forced to hire a 24-7 armed guard.

The New York Post reported on the threats on Sunday:
A Harvard-educated CEO who railed against Puerto Rican government officials for their “inept” response to Hurricane Maria has received so many threats that he now fears for his safety and has hired a bodyguard.
In an opinion piece published in The Post last week, Puerto Rican businessman Jorge Rodriguez said he was directing employees at his international engineering firm to help rehabilitate the island — but barring them from working on any projects that involved local government officials, citing corruption and mismanagement.
“After the article went viral, I got some serious threats,” said Rodriguez, 49, who would not elaborate.
“I don’t go to public places by myself anymore because of the hate mail,” said Rodriguez. “Now I have to look over my shoulder and get protection.”
