This time Javier Milei’s draw was won by a libertarian: ‘He played on our side’
The new right-wing MP Javier Milei, drew lots on Thursday for his second salary as a legislator. On this occasion, the raffle was won by Jonatan Lewczuk, an audiovisual producer who works for the town hall.
Like some Pro leaders, Lewczuk sympathizes with Milei’s ideas. “I’m following you till you die,” he told her when the deputy called to let him know he had won the award.
“This time I’m playing on our side,” Milei told reporters. The winner will win the sum of 369,828.99 pesos.
Note that a month ago, Federico Nacardo won the first draw orchestrated by Milei. Far from having sympathy for the far-right leader, Nacardo had entered the competition at the insistence of his partner and assured that he would use much of the money to pay off his debts.. “We will continue to feed the financial system,” he concluded on this occasion, in front of a dumbfounded Milei.

That is to say, 1,040,622 people, according to the message published in the same forum that a few days ago published the sale of data from the National Registry of People (ReNaPer). The alleged data package is offered in exchange for $10,500.
