Newcomer to the campaign Lula, Simone Tebet fired a shot during the first stage of the dispute that could hit the president squarely Jair Bolsonaro on this trajectory until the second round. A video of the senator during her participation in the FlowPodcast, on August 18, was once again shared on the networks and has the potential to disrupt the current president’s plans.
During the conversation, the senator criticized the secret budget and suggested that Brazil may be facing the biggest corruption scheme on the planet. “When the elections are over, we may be facing the biggest corruption scheme on planet earth”, warned the then candidate.
The first round passed, Simone had almost 5 million votes and has already expressed her support for Lula. But, before all that, without even knowing what the outcome of the election would be, the senator was already indirectly helping the PT.
When talking about the secret budget, made possible by the current government, she touches on a wound in President Jair Bolsonaro and goes into the topic of “corruption”, a subject where the PT still has difficulties to enter.
“There are reports of a city in the interior of Maranhão, with just over 20,000 inhabitants, that had more HIV tests than the entire city of São Paulo, with 12 million inhabitants. There is a city that says that it extracted 540,000 teeth in a single year, which means having removed 14 teeth from each mouth, from each citizen of the city, including the newborn baby, who has no teeth. So I might be talking about a cold note. (…) I’m not talking about that thing of taking 10%, I’m talking about a whole grade”, says Tebet.
As the column showed, Lula erred in the debate held by Band at the end of August because he did not attack Bolsonaro as he should in relation to the corruption scandals revealed in the government. Both the former president and his party are still slipping to talk about the issue. And Bolsonaro makes a point of saying that he has no corruption in his management, ignoring absurdities such as his own secret budget and the MEC scandal.
Without knowing it, Tebet was already helping Lula. Talking about corruption is fundamental in this second stage of the dispute and the senator’s behavior in relation to this can make a difference to the voters who chose her on the 2nd. search Quaest shows that most of Tebet’s votes go to Bolsonaro, if the senator decides to hit this key again, this scenario could change.
