Rousseff Allies Back Brazil Palocci Wealth Probe, Folha Says

June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Two more senators from Brazil’s ruling coalition today backed a congressional investigation into the rise in wealth of Cabinet chief Antonio Palocci, Folha de Sao Paulo reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

With the support of Senators Cristovam Buarque and Pedro Taques, both members of the Democratic Workers Party, opposition parties now have 22 of the 27 signatures they need to start the probe in the 81-seat upper house, the Sao Paulo-based newspaper said on its website. So far, five senators from parties that support President Dilma Rousseff’s government back the proposal, Folha said.
