Running for office in Venezuela is an expensive (and dangerous) undertaking. So an opposition candidate in the upcoming legislative elections there, Gustavo Rojas, is holding a raffle to raise campaign funds, and the prize is a free boob job. Clever!
Rojas told the newspaper El Universal that "the raffle is a legal method. We decided on breast implants because we wanted to target a specific public sector." And it's a pretty good idea, considering nearly 30,000 breast implant procedures are performed every year there. Big boobs are big in Venezuela, apparently. On his blog, Rojas announced: "Raffle tickets on sale now: win a breast implant operation for yourself or your partner."
He is running for the opposition Justicia Primero party against Huge Chavez's United Socialist Party of Venezuela. Good luck with that, buddy.
