How the storm clouds massed for Brazil impeachment

Brazil's suspended President Dilma Rousseff waves to supporters before giving a speech in front of the Planalto Palace in Brasilia on May 12, 2016Brasília (AFP) – After months of the storm clouds massing, lightning struck President Dilma Rousseff on Thursday with Brazil’s Senate ejecting her from office as it moves towards her likely impeachment. The Senate will decide over the coming months whether to definitively remove Rousseff as head of state on charges she fudged the government budget to cover up shortfalls ahead of her 2014 reelection. On October 26, 2014, Rousseff was narrowly reelected Brazil’s president for another four-year mandate, continuing the policies of her much more popular predecessor and mentor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, known universally as Lula.
