2. Macri enjoys immunity as mayor - but that expires on December 10.

Poll after poll, moreover, shows that he won't be leapfrogging to the Presidency on that day, as he (and the WSJ and the rest of the vulture press) had hoped.

And graft-ridden municipal contracts aren't his only problem: for one, there's litigation ongoing for his role in illegally wiretapping dozens of public figures (a case bogged down in the courts since 2010 thanks to "friendly" right-wing judges); and now this:

Argentine electoral law mandates that all candidates to federal office must present their financial disclosure forms no later than today, and all presidential candidates have complied except one (Macri). Unless he coughs one up and soon, the same law stipulates that any candidate that refuses to do so can, if convicted, be sentenced to up to 6 years in the slammer.

Stay tuned.
