Brazilian Candidate Speaks Naked Truth

Compiled From Wire Services

A candidate for city council in southern Brazil is using television to reveal his ideas - and nearly everything else.

Julian Carlo Fagotti appears nude in a TV campaign spot for municipal elections in Curitiba, a city 420 miles southwest of Rio.

Fagotti, a candidate for the leftist Workers Party, wears only eyeglasses and holds a campaign leaflet that reads in Portuguese: “Shameless Politics.”

“You work. They steal. You vote. They forget. They’re the ones who should be ashamed,” Fagotti says in the spot.
