Leftist Leads Brazil’s Presidential Race Over Far-Right Opponents

The Brazilian presidential race is heating up as former president Luiz Lula da Silva leads the race over far-right candidates President Jair Bolsonaro and former judge Sergio Moro. Adding more drama to the race, Moro was the judge who unjustly jailed Lula for corruption, thus putting Bolsonaro in power by default. Ana Kasparian discusses on The Young Turks.

This is the truth. An alternative truth doesn’t exist,” Sergio Moro declared defensively, before a mostly empty auditorium, during the launch of his new autobiography last month. For the retired federal judge, the paltry turnout would’ve been unthinkable just a few years ago. Then, Moro was riding high as arguably the country’s most influential political actor, adored by the media and millions who viewed him as Brazil’s leading crusader in the battle against corruption. The right worshipped Moro for his role as the judge who put former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva behind bars on corruption charges. The popularity propelled Moro to high office, as justice minister under far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, who won the 2018 election after the frontrunner, Lula, was made ineligible by Moro’s conviction." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
