Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (R) speaks with her Chief of Staff Aloizio Mercadante during a ceremony at the Planalto Palace in Brasilia, June 9, 2015Brasília (AFP) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s former campaign treasurer and her chief of staff have been placed under investigation in the Petrobras mega corruption scandal, the local press reported Sunday. It would be the first time top members of Rousseff’s administration have been targeted directly in the widening investigation, which has already implicated her ruling Workers Party in massive graft at the state-owned oil giant. Two leading newspapers — O Estado de Sao Paulo and O Globo — reported that the Supreme Court has authorized investigations into Communications Minister Edinho Silva, who was the treasurer of Rousseff’s 2014 re-election campaign, and Rousseff’s chief of staff, Aloizio Mercadante.
