There's now a flurry of alleged hate crimes blamed on Bolsonaro, with poorly-drawn swastikas mysteriously appearing throughout the country.
Meanwhile, both candidates are seeking out a wider base, with Haddad stating he'll be true to Catholic principles and Bolsonaro joking to a young gay man that "my kiss will cure you".
And now, a look at some notable individuals who did or did not get elected:
Acir Gurgacz, PDT/Rondônia: Ran for Senator and failed, only getting third place. Second place was some dude named Confucius. Made headlines after getting arrested just a few days after the elections for financial fraud.
Anthony Garotinho, PRP/Rio de Janeiro: former governor, presidential candidate and Brizola ally. Ran for Senator, but saw his campaign declared illegal due to a previous condemnation over R$ 234 million government funds embezzled in 2005-6, and that's just one of his many corruption scandals. Nonetheless, he managed to receive over 80 thousand votes, which were promptly declared invalid.
Alexandre Frota,PSL/São Paulo: former porn actor and tranny conoisseur turned into a popular pro-Bolsonaro activist. Landed 152 thousand votes. Was still telling people he'd fuck their mothers and then fuck them in the ass on Twitter as late as last September.
Tiririca,PR/São Paulo: you've probably already heard of him-this is the literal clown who reached record vote counts on slogans such as "It can't get any worse" and "Do you know what a congressman does? I don't, either. Vote for me and I'll tell you." Promised his career was over earlier on but broke his vows and comfortably secured 445 thousand votes.
Luiz Philippe of Orleans and Braganza, PSL/São Paulo: nephew of the current pretender to the throne. A businessman and intellectual, he recently gained fame through media appearences and a book outlining his vision of the country. Running for congressman, he got himself a seat with 116 thousand votes. A qualified and well-meaning individual, though, as some of his own relatives noted, it is perhaps degrading for someone of his birth to not only join a republican institution but also the most reviled one.
Dilma Rousseff, PT/Minas Gerais: No explanation needed. Sought a senatorial post and failed.
