Brazil: Gabeira as Mayor for Rio de Janeiro

Pedro Dória [pt] wants congressman Fernando Gabeira [pt] to be Rio de Janeiro's mayor and thinks that the blogosphere and netizens can join forces to convince him to put his name forward. “It is time to launch an online campaign. If a great enough number of people join it, we have chances. Go on and post on the subject. Debate it. Surely a designer will come up with a banner, a button. Anyone can write to him”.
