Demise of Demóstenes | Amateurs Get the Dropbox on MSM

A reasonably thorough scanning of Brazil’s «progressive blogophere» turns up a Wikileaks moment: Lei dos Homens offers the entire federal police and prosecutorial case file on the corruption case that has led the political opposition into yet another ugly crisis .

Dropbox, however, is informing me that the customer account is receiving too much traffic and cannot be accessed, above.

There appears to be enough material to keep nosy investigators busy for months, if not more. I personally would like to know more about the alleged collusion of journalists with the gambling rackets of Goiás.

Post-scriptum: An anonymous user has posted the 36-volume case file on Scribd.

Above, Nextel confirms the interception of user accounts pursuant to a court order.

If I ever realize my dreams of producing at least one hardboiled fiction in the school of Rubem Fonseca, these sorts of files could come in handy.
