Amid a massive corruption scandal which has tarnished Brazil’s political class and driven the country’s president to the brink of impeachment, the Brazilian supreme court has banned corporate donations to candidates and parties in future elections.
With eight votes in favour and three against, the court declared late on Thursday that the rules allowing companies to donate to election campaigns were unconstitutional.
The lefty government takes control of the state owned oil company, Petrobras, which then starts to feed billions and billions out to the lefty political party which makes up the government plus lots and lots of lefty politicians who happen to belong to the same, lefty and governing the state oil company, party.
The solution is to stop not the state oil company companies from donating to election campaigns.
Well, yes, that will work, won’t it?
