An opposition candidate in next month’s Venezuelan legislative elections is holding a breast implant raffle to fund his campaign, he said in a newspaper interview published Friday. “The raffle is a legal method. We decided on breast implants because we wanted to target a specific public sector,” Gustavo Rojas told El Universal. “Raffle tickets on sale now: win a breast implant operation for yourself or your partner,” Rojas announces on his website. The interview does not mention either the cost of a breast implant operation or how much money Rojas expects to get with the raffle.
A Venezuelan politician gives away breast implants as a fundraiser. I wonder if it comes with a lift if the winner could use one? The American Board of Plastic Surgery forbids its members from giving away surgery in a promotion. Obviously this doesn’t stand for politicians in other countries.
