Journalists look at TV screens showing the head of Mexico's powerful teachers' union Elba Esther Gordillo behind bars as she appears for a hearing at a federal prison in Mexico City, Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013. Gordillo was charged with embezzling 2 billion pesos (about $160 million) from union funds and was arrested Tuesday afternoon as she returned from San Diego for a meeting of leaders of the 1.5 million-member National Union of Education Workers she has led for nearly a quarter-century.
