BRASILIA : Call It 'Collorgate'

August 18, 1992

Impeachment is in the air in the Brazilian capital as a joint commission of Congress investigating corruption charges against President Fernando Collor de Mello's former campaign treasurer prepares to distribute its draft report on Saturday.

According to reports leaked by members of the investigative commission, money from "ghost" bank accounts linked to the campaign official was used to pay Collor's household expenses. If the commission does implicate Collor, it would give impetus to his opponents to try to impeach him.
