All families keep secrets; ours are intertwined with the history of dictatorships in the Dominican Republic. While I investigate the fraud accusations against my paternal grandfather, president of the Electoral Board in 1990, a similar scandal breaks out when the 2020 municipal elections are sabotaged.
