So, Millions of Suspects in Money Laundering?

Of the many absurd protest placards from protests in Brazil this past Sunday, one of the most ridiculous was the one proclaiming that “We are millions of Cunhas – Enough crooked deals and corruption,” in reference to the head of the Chamber of Deputies, Eduardo Cunha.

Today, Cunha was charged in the federal court for money-laundering and corruption for his solicitation and receipt of US$5 million in the current scandal.

In hindsight, the person who made that banner (and those who applauded it) probably could have picked a better example.
