Rousseff Out, Temer In After Impeachment Vote
He’s got his work cut out for him. As expected, Brazil’s Senate voted 61-20 to remove president and former Marxist guerrilla Dilma Rousseff. Her reign was tainted by connections to deeply entrenched corruption scandals, but many turning to interim President Michel Temer are realizing that his Brazilian Democratic Movement Party has similar ties, and Temer himself’s been convicted of violating campaign finance rules. But for many Brazilian conservatives, Temer, who’s expected to hold the post until elections in 2018, is also seen as a hope for the nation’s economy.
