Venezuelan markets in everything

A Venezuelan politician is offering breast implants as a prize in a raffle to raise funds for his parliamentary election campaign.

"Some people raffle TVs and we decided to offer this. It's an interesting prize and there's a lot of interest," Gustavo Rojas, an opposition candidate for a National Assembly position, told Reuters while campaigning in Caracas.

Here is his defense of the policy:

"The raffle is a financing mechanism, nothing else. It's the doctor who will do the operation, not me," he said.
