Mexico Corruption: Mexico ruling party asks mayor, governor step down

The Associated Press: " Mexico's ruling party on Tuesday asked the governor of Nuevo Leon state and the mayor of its capital city to step down temporarily while police investigate an arson that killed 52 people and a casino corruption scandal.

President Felipe Calderon's National Action Party, or PAN, said in letters sent to Nuevo Leon Gov. Rodrigo Medina and Monterrey Mayor Fernando Larrazabal that they should leave their posts so that the probe into last month's deadly casino arson attack doesn't become "a struggle between political forces."
Larrazabal is a member of the PAN but Medina belongs to the opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party."
