A Conservative Call from Brazil

On October 26th the presidential election took place in Brazil.By a narrow margin of votes (3%) Dilma Rousseff, the current president and socialist candidate from the Workers Party, was reelected. With this victory, the Workers Party will complete 16 years of being in charge of the country. The election was turbulent, marred by allegations of corruption and embezzlement of public funds by the Rousseff campaign. One witness under a plea deal has linked Rousseff and former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, (Lula) to a billionaire fraud in Petrobras, Brazil’s biggest oil company. The company is now under criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.
