Doxing Scandal Started by Mexican President Rocks Country’s Politics

A doxing scandal started by Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador led to the additional doxing of two presidential candidates. The president also admitted that he didn’t care if he broke the law by starting the controversy.

In the most recent turn of events, Lopez Obrador criticized YouTube for taking down the video of his morning news conference where the doxing took place. The politician claimed YouTube was censoring him and being authoritarian.

As Breitbart Texas initially reported, the issue began last week when Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador used one of his morning news conferences to criticize and intimidate the New York Times for asking questions about drug cartel money being pumped into his campaigns.

In the most recent turn of events, Lopez Obrador criticized YouTube for taking down the video of his morning news conference where the doing took place. The politician claimed YouTube was censoring him and being authoritarian.

During his initial criticism, Lopez Obrador revealed the personal cell phone of Natalie Kitroeff from the Times, who sent an email to the president’s press office with multiple questions.

The issue continued with Mexican government news outlets criticizing Kitroeff and her work in the story about AMLO’s campaign.

The initial doxxing sparked international criticism from press freedom organizations since Mexico is considered one of the deadliest countries for journalists.

When questioned by a reporter from Univision about the doxing, Lopez Obrador said it was done on purpose. When told that doxing was against the law in Mexico, the president doubled down and claimed that he was within his right to defend himself against libelous attacks from critical news outlets.

Soon after, one of Lopez Obrador’s sons posted on social media that his phone number had been leaked and he had been receiving threats.

Presidential Candidate Claudia Sheinbaum, a Lopez Obrador supporter, also posted over the weekend that she, too, had been doxed and had been receiving threats on her personal cell phone.

By Sunday, Xochitl Galvez, the presidential candidate from the opposition party also reported that her cell phone number had been leaked.
