Rousseff insists her government untainted by Brazil oil scandal

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, waves during a parade in Brasilia, on September 7, 2014Brasília (AFP) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has insisted a corruption scandal at state oil giant Petrobras does not involve her government, as she fends off a new threat to her re-election bid. “I think this does not place the government under any suspicion, as nobody in the government has been officially accused of anything,” Rousseff said in comments made Sunday and carried by newspapers on Monday. The scandal at Petrobras erupted on Saturday with polls already showing Rousseff likely to lose the upcoming presidential elections to environmentalist Marina Silva in a run-off October 26.
