The expression "Sacar los trapitos al sol" is what this man is literally doing taking his rags out to the sun. The expression is an equivalent to the expression "airing out your dirty laundry". Meaning that things, usually ones you don't want anybody to know, are revealed to the public.
In this electoral year  the media will make sure that all the trapitos (rags) of the politics salgan al sol (are taken out to the sun ).
This picture was taken last Sunday on 9th street and 12th avenue Zone 1. The faded sign painted on the wall says Fabrica de Piñatas Nery - Nery´s Piñata Factory-. Directly under, on the first floor, you can see the ears of a Piñata in the storefront.
