Remember Jesse Chacón, Venezuela’s Electricity Czar? The guy’s useless at getting power flowing smoothly, of course, but you do have to give him credit for absolutely incredible, titanium-plated cojones.
It was way back in April 2013 that Jesse famously promised to resign in 100 days if electric supply problems were not fixed. The supply problem was, predictably, in no discernible way better after 100 days, or after two years and spare change for that matter.
So naturally somebody’s going to pay for that with his job, right?
