Despite Scandal, FIFA President Sepp Blatter will probably be Re-Elected

The Blatter continues to thrive even when another scandal embroils the world governing body of soccer. As Fox News [1] said:

“The incumbent president of international soccer’s governing body was poised to be elected to a fifth term Friday despite a corruption scandal that exploded earlier this week after the arrests of seven high-ranking officials.”

“Sepp Blatter, 79, appeared to have the support of most of FIFA’s 209 member soccer federations after asking them Thursday to entrust him with guiding the organization’s recovery from the most serious crisis in its 111-year history.”
