Huge Cleavage revenge Cospedal Minister of defense Spain
The revenge of the Minister of Defense of Spain was immediate. The minister contacted the Russian humorists who deceived her last week and asked them for friendship in the Russian social network Vkontakte. The two comedians thought they could contact an impressive woman with huge breasts and perfect curves. Actually it was a fake. When the Russian humorists met with the minister they met a company of Spanish legionaries.
María Dolores Cospedal García (born 13 December 1965) is a Spanish politician who is the Minister of Defense of Spain and the Secretary-General of the People’s Party.
At a certain point she started calling herself “de Cospedal” in public which sounded more aristocratic but more recently she has reverted to plain “Cospedal”.
She was chosen as the People’s Party (PP) candidate in the 2011 regional elections, for the presidency of the autonomous community of Castile-La Mancha. She obtained a majority with 48.13% of the votes which meant that for the first time in the history of democratic Spain the PP would govern the Junta of Communities of Castile-La Mancha (JCCM).
She also got the most votes in the 2015 regional elections, but she did not obtain absolute majority and PSOE’s Emiliano García-Page was invested President of Castile-La Mancha thanks to an agreement with Podemos.
On 3 November 2016, Cospedal was appointed Minister of Defense by PM Mariano Rajoy.
The Bárcenas Affair is a corruption scandal in Spain that affects the ruling People’s Party (PP). Following revelations about the 48 million euros in Swiss bank accounts of party treasurer and senator, Luis Bárcenas, extracts of handwritten accounts, the so-called “Bárcenas papers” (los papeles de Bárcenas) were published. Those allegedly indicate that the PP kept, for many years, a parallel bookkeeping system to record undeclared and illegal cash donations, and used them to pay bonuses to senior members of the party as well as for daily party expenses.
The documents cover the period from 1990 to 2009, and suggest that regular cash payments had been made from a slush fund. Those include payments of 25,000 euros ($34,000) a year, for eleven years, to the current Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, including, according to El Mundo, during three of the years that he served as minister in José María Aznar’s government.
Other leading party figures allegedly involved in the scandal include former ministers Rodrigo Rato, (also a former director general of the IMF), Ángel Acebes, Federico Trillo, and former secretaries-general, who also served as ministers, Francisco Álvarez-Cascos, who allegedly received 421,693 euros between 1990 and 2004, and Javier Arenas, who allegedly received 234,320 euros, and the party’s current secretary general María Dolores de Cospedal, the most senior party member summoned to date to appear before the investigating judge.
On 1 August 2013, after “weeks of holding out against demands that he give some sort of explanation for the corruption and illegal funding scandal that has engulfed” his party, Rajoy was finally forced to address Spain’s parliament by the threat of a motion of censure. While admitting to having handled the scandal badly, he denied taking illegal funds.
On 22 November 2013, the investigating judge released a writ where he claimed that circumstantial evidence existed that the PP had maintained a parallel accounting system to the official one it presented to the Audit Court.
The trial for the related Gurtel case began in 2016. The case of the alleged parallel accounting (Caja B) was due to go to court in 2018. However, developments in the Gurtel case resulted in calls for the Caja B case to be brought forward.
