I'm so glad that he was caught and I think he should go to jail for a very long time. It's so disgusting that a person uses a disaster such as the earthquake to steal money from unsuspecting people.

Especially a politican whose salary is paid by the taxes of the citizens he is supposed to be representing.

For him to use his position for corrupt purposes is very shameful.
