Clear as mud

On it rumbles. The Folha de Sao Paulo investigation into how many cities run by the PT benefited from loans from the state development bank (BNDES) continues. The relevant director of the bank, Marcio Henrique Monteiro de Castro, was wheeled out to claim that the reason the PT had received more funding was because they tend to be more organised than other administrations. He continues to insist there was no political interference.

He also claims the PT benefited from more loans made to it than any other party during the term of the previous government as well, but Folha notes he fails to name which cities benefited. He also disputes the cities on Folha's list, which the newspaper says came from the bank's own press office earlier this month.

Where will it all lead, I wonder?
