Brazilians who have become inured to the massive, three-year corruption investigation were shocked last week by the disclosure of a recording that appeared to show Temer condoning the payment of hush money to a jailed lawmaker.The scandal has threatened to tear apart Temer's coalition in Congress and leave Latin America's largest economy adrift as the president fights for his political survival, just a year after the impeachment of his predecessor.The Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB), Temer's biggest ally in the governing coalition, put off a meeting Sunday to decide whether to continue supporting the beleaguered president.Party officials said Monday the PSDB would wait until the Supreme Court rules this week on whether to continue an investigation of Temer.
