Brazil’s Temer survives corruption charges vote in Congress

Activists from the Homeless Workers Movement protest against Brazil’s President Michel Temer and the government’s budget cuts affecting low-income housing programs, while the lower house in Brasilia votes on whether to suspend President Temer and put him on trial over an alleged bribery scheme, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017. This is the second time Temer faces such a vote and is one more in a litany of scandals that have dogged his presidency since he replaced President Dilma Rousseff, who was impeached and removed from office last year.
