    Lula still leads the vote intention.

    Therefore, Lula can't run.

    Hey, in case of winning, he may still want to reduce inequality in Brazil.

    No, definitely Lula can't be allowed to run. But how?

    A judge can do it. Lula may have received an apartment as a bribe. I know, he never had the apartment in his name, never stayed in it.

    It does not matter. We need a witness with a long sentence who will be amenable to testify against Lula in exchange for erasing prison time. And we need a judge who cares little about solid proof and replaces it with “conviction.”

    Sergio Moro can do the deed. He did it! The Brazil as we know is saved!
