Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló was expected to resign Wednesday amid a torrent of protests over vulgar, mean-spirited texting conversations recently made public across the island, multiple media outlets were reporting.

Rosselló could announce his resignation at around noon in a farewell address to be broadcast live, the island’s newspaper of record, El Nuevo Día, reported.

Justice Secretary Wanda Vázquez would be his successor because the secretary of state position is vacant. Luis Rivera Marín, one of the closest associates of Rosselló, resigned on July 13th after the leak of 889 pages of private chats between the governor and high-ranking officials.

A judge issued search warrants Tuesday for the cellphones of government officials tied to the two-week scandal. Every day brought more resignations and hints that criminal charges could follow.
