The Coquito Candidate

WASHINGTON HEIGHTS,  NY  – Juan Bobo is running for office again. In a packed press conference, Leo announced his candidacy for U.S. Congress in WashingtonHeights.

Juan is not sure of his platform yet. “Someone is stealing a lot of money around here,” he told reporters, “and I’m going to find out who.”

The counter-accusations have already begun.

Juan owns La Casita de Chema, a very popular bar that just happens to be in the district.  His coquito and guava schnapps are famous throughout Inwood and Marble Hill.  “He’s buying votes with his coquito!” shouted Congressman Charles Rangel at a local community forum. “I demand an investigation!”

The Congressman also charged that Leo does not care about government.  “It’s all a trick,” said Rangel. “He’s only running to promote his book about coquito.”

Rangel may have a point. The Coquito Dictionary was published in 2000 and is currently undergoing a reprint. Copies are on sale at Barnes & Noble,  Waldenbooks, Walmart, Home Depot, and of course this web site.

The Chronicles of Juan Bobo

  1. Wito Pacheco says:

    Juan Bobo es un gran hombre de coquito.

  2. Joe Sanchez says:

    Charles Rangel may be half Puerto Rican on his father’s side, which he denied for years, until he saw he needed the Latino vote, but going up against El Coquito, especially where there is dancing to the music: Coquie! Coquie! El merengue Del Coquie. Juan Bobo could give a rat’s ass about Mr. Rangel.
