    Oh dear.

    The police are daring to question the chief crook of the PT whether he had any corrupt money!

    Cue Brasso foaming at the mouth, again, and claiming it is all lies.

    There is only one thing you can say to Brazil:
    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, PULL THE OTHER ONE.

    He admits that even one cent was donated illegally and especially so for last year with elections then opposition parties shall cry for a new and fair election. And you'd think they have a good case.

    This is more important than the PBR scandal
    Although both could bring down the gov't
    and neither has an easy or fast solutuion

    Joao Vaccari Neto already has a police record from a few years ago, when he was appointed , by Lula, to be the president of a real-estate cooperative founded to finance cheap housing for government employees. Although charged with the theft of over R$ 100 million, leaving hundreds of buyers without their promised homes, the PT covered it up. But once a thief, always a thief, and this time, his “PT given talent” will lead straight to the putrid core of the Worker's Party.

    Jack Bosta you are a liar and the shame of my country!

    The police and the Paraná PSDB judge did not order Vaccari to testify. The police jumped the fence of his house with the Globo cameras rolling. Shame!

    Our democracy is a Shame!

    @6 brASSHOLE
    Here it is in Portuguese, since you obviously have a hard time understanding English....
    “Caso Bancoop”
    Vaccari é um dos réus no Caso Bancoop por crime de formação de quadrilha, estelionato e tentativa de estelionato, falsidade ideológica e crime de lavagem de dinheiro por desvios de recursos no total aproximado de R$ 70 milhões e prejuízo de aproximadamente R$ 100 milhões a cooperados que não receberam suas unidades habitacionais“.”
    Free-translation, below“....
    Vaccari is one of the defendants in the Bancoop case, for the crime of conspiracy, larceny and attempted larceny, forgery and crime of money laundering by misappropriation of resources totaling approximately USD 70 million and losses of approximately USD 100 million to cooperative members who did not receive their housing units. “

    As the above report states, your socialist hero was indicted in the Bancoop case, being charged with deviating approx USD 70 million, and causing a loss of USD 100 million to the home buyers. Scream and shout all you want, you insignficant little turd, but the truth is that he has already been indicted as well, in Operation ”Lava-Jato“, or the ”Petrolão”.....
    And, when the Feds arrived at his house with a warrant to force him to testify, he refused to come out, obliging the police to climb over the gate and drag him out...Later, he invented some bullshit about not having heard the bell ring and that he was 'anxious' to testify....sure, we all believe him. With his record, it is obvious why he was Lula's choice to be treasurer of the PT...
    And true, under the PT, Brazil's democracy is a sham, not a 'shame'...
    Your blind defense of these criminals, says everything about you.
