In America, politicians get caught using or buying drugs all the time but never actually selling them. God forbid you actually get caught giving them away–that just shows bad judgement and poor fiscal responsibility. However, this past Sunday Brazilian politician Carme Cristina da Silva Lima was caught handing out packets of cocaine along with leaflets instructing people on how to vote for her.
According to Brazilian news site TNOnline (translated, of course), police first became suspicious when they saw a large crowd gathered around Carme’s car. After everyone scattered upon seing the 5-0, authorities discovered the packets of cocaine/voting instructions.
One thing’s for sure. No one was voting for her because of her looks.
