Arrests in Puerto Rico corruption scandal have led the top Democrat who oversees the island to call for Gov. Ricardo Rossello's resignation

“We’ve crossed that crucible now,” Congressman Raul Grijalva said in interview. “The restoration of accountability is so key going forward.”


The FBI on Wednesday arrested two former senior officials who served in administration of Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, leading the chair of the House committee that oversees Puerto Rico to call for the governor to step down.

The arrests also spurred concerns on Capitol Hill about the billions of dollars in aid that Congress has approved for the island.

The federal indictment says the former officials illegally directed federal funding to politically connected contractors.
