Piedad Córdoba least trusted person or Piedad 16

Colombia’s senator Piedad Córdoba is the least trusted person in her country, according to a Terra Poll. I still wonder why she is hated so much. I don’t think she deserves it, although of course, she is not perfect.

I will present Terra’s list, which was published by Colombia Reports, and then afterwards my own list.

Terra’s list

  1. Piedad Cordoba
    Liberal Party Senator, admirer of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, investigated for ties to the FARC and Nobel Peace Prize nominee

  3. Jose Obdulio Gaviria
