(CMR) Police in Brazil have reported that they found a sum of cash clenched inside the buttocks of a local Brazilian politician.
Reports are that the Brazilian president’s deputy leader in the senate, was reportedly caught with the bundle of cash on Wednesday (October 14) during a police search of his home.
The raid was part of an operation against the suspected misappropriation of public funds for fighting Covid-19.
A local newspaper reported that more than £4,100 was found, some of the money was stashed in the underpants of Chico Rodrigues, a senator for the Amazon state of Roraima.
Rodrigues has denied any wrongdoing, and has insisted that it’s his rivals who are out to get him. “I have a clean background and a respectable life. I’ve never been involved in any kind of scandal,” the 69-year-old said.
Just yesterday, Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro asserted that he doesn’t believe there are any corrupt members in his government. And if he finds any, then they are sure to get a “flying kick to the neck” from him.
