We kind of have a thing for when politics turns into gossip fodder!

Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom and wife Sandra Torres have filed for divorce…but it’s to allow the first lady to run in September’s presidential election.

You see, Article 186 of the Guatemalan Constitution prohibits the immediate, and many other, relatives of the president from vying for the presidency.

If the pair are declared to be divorced Sandra will have circumvented the constitutional article that says that the spouse of the president may not run for the presidency!

Kind of ridiculous and brilliant all at the same time.

Where there’s a will, the Latino will find a way!
