Hugo Chavez's 35 Year Old Daughter Is Venezuela's Richest Woman

Last year, reporter MarĂ­a Elvira Salazar displayed what appeared to be a receipt showing millions in a bank account belonging to Gabriela Chavez withdrawn in the United States

Daily Mail: Being the ex-President's daughter pays off: Hugo Chavez's ambassador daughter is Venezuela's richest woman

* Diario las Americas claims that Maria Gabriela Chavez, 35, has $4.2billion in assets held in American and Andorran banks
* Hugo Chavez famously declared 'being rich is bad' and during his lifetime railed against the wealthy for being lazy and gluttonous
* Efforts to determine Chavez's wealth have been made before, without much luck

The daughter of Hugo Chavez, the former president who once declared 'being rich is bad,' may be the wealthiest woman in Venezuela, according to evidence reportedly in the hands of Venezuelan media outlets.

Maria Gabriela Chavez, 35, the late president's second-oldest daughter, holds assets in American and Andorran banks totaling almost $4.2billion, Diario las Americas reports.

The figure would make Gabriela Chavez wealthier than media mogul Gustavo Cisneros, whom Forbes named the wealthiest Venezuelan earlier this year with $3.6billion in assets.

Update: I was stunned when I read this ... and I am no fan of Hugo Chavez and what he has done to Venezuela. But this massive and wanton corruption and thievery .... if true .... had to be done with Hugo Chavez's A-OK when he was alive.

A blatant example of what is going on pretty much everywhere.
