Bulgarian Campaign Rhetoric Gets Rough

According to the head of Bulgaria's opposition GERB party,the parties from Bulgaria's ruling three-way coalition have raised much of the money for their election campaigns through illegal trafficking, including drugs, and contraband," heading into Bulgaria's upcoming election.

He added that the his GERB party, headed by Sofia mayor Boyko Borisov, has spent much less.

These accusations are interesting because, according to Congressional Quarterly, Borisov himself has ties with "some of the biggest mobsters in Bulgaria." Borisov has denied this.

Whatever ties either faction may have with organized crime, Bulgarian criminal gangs are among the major cocaine traffickers in Europe.
