The VP has NO Integrity
Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles or moral uprightness. As a lawyer, the outgoing VP, Leni Robredo should know that vote-buying is punishable by law. Inciting the people to accept money from vote-buyers is simply immoral. Those who defend her on the statement she made in public are equally fraudulent. So, the authority should investigate now on how she should be punished. Disqualification may be too early.
Vote-buying is an election offense. Regardless of financial situation or noble intentions. That should not be done. Leni is wrong to suggest this to voters,” Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said on Twitter. This is after Robredo told Filipino domestic workers to accept bribes. But vote according to their conscience. Because the money is allegedly from the people’s taxes. Therefore, she insinuates that this makes this acceptable. To suggest such an act might disqualify the VP. But that would kill the thrill in the election of 2022.
Teaching Voters to be Money-Greedy
“Alam mo, mali siya, mali ‘yung pagbibili ng boto. Pero ‘yung sinasabi ko sa tao, tanggapin ‘nyo…. ‘Yung pinangbibili ng boto, pera din ‘yan ng taongbayan,” Robredo’s exact words in Tagalog. It might be wrong but I shall say to the people to accept the money. Because the funds used are also from the country’s coffer. So, do you want her to be president?
