Brewing scandals - Tradução em português

What does "Brewing Scandals" means?
Im translating a text from the new york times, and theres a part that says:

He was wrong. Lula’s popularity, it turned out, could be transferred—but only on his going and only to his chosen successor. If the polls are right (see chart), Ms Rousseff will be Brazil’s next president. That is despite several brewing scandals.

Could someone help me? What does it means?

Hi there!

He was wrong. Lula’s popularity, it turned out, could be transferred—but only on his going and only to his chosen successor. If the polls are right (see chart), Ms Rousseff will be Brazil’s next president. That is despite several brewing scandals.


Se as pesquisas estiverem certas Dilma Rousseff será a próxima presidente do Brasil. Isto é, mesmo com os mais diversos escândalos em andamento.

Complementando,

O uso de "brewing" tem o sentido de que algo desagradável está por acontecer. Na verdade, faz, para mim, uma leve referência ao fato de partidos/mídia de oposição estarem constantemente atrás de algum fato novo para gerar escândalos e ganhar votos, estes escândalos podem aparecer a qualquer momento, estão "brewing".

If something unpleasant is brewing or brewing up, it seems likely to happen soon. (Oxford)

Boa sorte!
