It is a political trend in the Philippines that if a member of a political family is vying for an important post, the rest of the family members are also attacked. The filing of corruption cases is typical that is just dismissed in the end. Imee Marcos’ recent subpoena is one example as Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo is heating up.

[VIDEO]: Dalawang beses nang hindi sumipot si Marcos sa pagdinig kaugnay sa maanumalya umanong paggamit ng lokal na pamahalaan sa Tobacco Excise Tax para ipambili ng mga multicab.
Imee Marco’s Subpoena
The House Committee on Good Government ordered to subpoena Ilocos Gov. Imee Marcos. This is allegedly after she failed to show up in three committee hearings. The ₱66-million purchase of government vehicles using money intended to help out tobacco farmers was questioned by House Majority Leader Rudy Fariñas.
Fariñas claim that Marcos allegedly committed plunder, technical malversation, and violation of the procurement act just went overboard. He said that she spent more the amount from tobacco excise tax to buy 40mini-cabs, 5 secondhand buses, and 70 Foton mini-trucks.
Marcos questions the committee during its second hearing that the panel does not have the authority to hold such an investigation. Why attend the unconstitutional hearings? Its purpose obviously is to discredit the Marcoses to hopefully break their alliance with the president.
Filipinos’ Love of Gossip
Bitter politicians learned that it is possible to turn the public’s favor into them. They just have to spread out rumors of their unfounded accusations against their enemies. People’s minds are poisoned by mainstream media to rob them of the opportunity to vote for the best leaders of the country. Will you allow that for 2019 and 2022 elections?
