Bongbong Marcos’ Recount Bid Not Affected by Bautista’s Impeachment Correction

bid





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Some media’s misleading headline that reads; “Bautista Welcomes his Impeachment Dismissal” or something in that context created a bit of stir for a while. More news clarifies that only the correction plea got dismissed. In fact, his estranged wife, Patricia Bautista’s testimonial is set at the hearing. Whatever the outcome is, COMELEC Chief, Andres Bautista’s case is not any more relevant to Bongbong Marcos’ recount bid. This is because the first course of action that questions the integrity of 2016 automated election is already cleared out by the PET for the immediate recount to take place. The second course of action in Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo is about to begin.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos says that he has nothing to do with the corruption allegations raised by the wife of Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista.



First Course of Action Out

In a resolution dated August 29, the PET junked Marcos’ first cause of action for being “meaningless and pointless.” The tribunal said that “allowing the first cause of action and the annulment of the proclamation to continue would be an exercise in futility and would have no practical effect.” The PET then ruled that immediate recount must be prioritized in the selected pilot provinces which Marcos welcomed.



Impeachment Correction Denied

The House rejects the motion to admit a substitute impeachment complaint. It seeks to correct the verification errors of the first one filed against Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairperson Andres Bautista. The committee just tackles the first impeachment complaint against Bautista if it is sufficient in form and substance. At least 27 members voted against the motion for substitution, while only two members voted in support of the motion to admit the substitute verification.



Bautista’s Wife to Attest for Truth

The estranged wife of Commission on Elections Chairman Andres Bautista attends the poll chief’s impeachment hearing at the House of Representatives to “attest to the truth.” Patricia Bautista earlier said that she would be attesting to the authenticity of the impeachment case filed by lawyer Ferdinand Topacio‏ and former Negros Oriental Rep. Jacinto Paras against her husband.








Recount Bid Belongs to the 2nd Course

Bongbong Marcos vehemently denies that he’s got something to do with Mrs. Bautista’s squeals against her own husband. He also assures the press that he and his wife won’t meddle with marital affairs. However, Marcos believes that the estranged wife’s testimony must be heard after she signs an affidavit on that regard. No matter how the COMELEC Chair’s case develops, that has no effect anymore on his protest. The PET has already ruled that the VP Post issue is to be resolved only through the recount.

Martin Bautista’s Disclosure Supports First Part of Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest

protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Comelec Chair’s brother Martin Bautista faces direct scrutiny by Patricia Bautista’s lawyer, Atty. Lorna Kapunan on his disclosure that he has with him the evidence of their alleged unexplained wealth. Kapunan points out 8 violations that put not only him and his family into trouble. He also places the 2016 election into a bad light. These add to the weight of the first part of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest when proven.

[VIDEO]: Comelec chief may have violated rule to disclose business interests: lawyer




Family Treasurer

Atty. Lorna Kapunan, a former lawyer and current legal adviser of Patricia Bautista said that Martin Bautista’s admission that he does not know their family’s wealth details because the Chairman is the “family Treasurer” is damaging. It means that the Comelec chief fails to disclose his business interests and financial connections as required by law. She said that the disclosures are supposedly on a separate form attached to the SALN.



Negative Impact on his Brother

As he points the Chairman as the family Treasurer, he also implies that Comelec Chair Bautista is liable if incorrect taxes filed. Kapunan also stresses that Bautista could face charges for “soliciting or accepting gifts directly or indirectly.” This follows after Mrs. Bautista reveals a “commission sheet” or referral record, however they call it. That bears the names of lawyers that allegedly paid such fees to the Comelec chief.



Liberal Party Bet

Kapunan also mentioned that Martin Bautista ran for public office at least three times while he still has residency and active investments in the US. As his current status dictates. She suggests for authorities look into how they transfer their wealth from America to the Philippines. This is to see if they follow the remittance law. He belongs to the Liberal Party of Vice President Leni Robredo, Marcos’ rival in the VP race.








Integrity of the 2016 Election

The Comelec Chair’s brother cannot vouch for the integrity of the 2016 election or else, he can only be biased. Despite his LP affiliation, he seems to have various violations in his political activities. His disclosure not only ruin his own brother and family – but he also helped Bongbong Marcos prove that the previous poll was indeed fraudulent.

Not about Liza Marcos: Patricia Bautista’s Personality Changes from a Battered Wife to a Fighter

battered





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos denies his wife, Liza Araneta-Marcos’ involvement between the meeting with Patricia Bautista, Comelec Chair, Andres Bautista’s wife and the President. Chairman Bautista in an interview stresses the change in his wife. He said that a political force may have triggered it. His wife according to many is well-mannered. However, Mrs. Bautista is a battered wife as per her complaint of violence to her and her children against her husband. It is a natural outcome that when a woman gets over her ordeal, she becomes a fighter.

Social Media Rumor

A lawyer for Patricia Bautista confirms that Bongbong Marcos’ wife did not set up their meeting with the President Rodrigo Duterte. “It’s not Tita Liza. If it were her, I would have told you,” Martin Loon, Mrs. Bautista’s lawyer, said. Loon was referring o Liza Araneta Marcos. The lawyer made the clarification as rumors circulate on social media that the former Senator’s wife facilitated the meeting between Mrs. Bautista and Du30.




Not Classmates nor Friends

There were also rumors that Mrs. Marcos and Mrs. Bautista were classmates. In the same television interview, Mrs. Bautista denies that she knew Mrs. Marcos. “I don’t even know Liza Marcos,” she said.



Tale of Two Wives

Mrs. Bautista and Mrs. Marcos have many things in common. Both are from prominent families, educated, bright, beautiful, loving, and have minds of their own. Women like these if not all wives must be nurtured by their husbands like how the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos takes care of his first lady, Imelda Marcos.








Liza Marcos’ Advantage

Liza Marcos’ advantage over Mrs. Bautista is the fact that she is not a battered wife. She is in full partnership with her husband in whatever decision they take. Despite the 3-decades long anomaly of her husband’s family on the alleged hidden wealth, she is not left in the dark. The brother of Mr. Bautista testifies that she knew about their investment but since the documents are locked up, she is still clueless on the status of the said wealth. Evidence says it all.

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos in an ambush interview said that he has no idea on the Smartmatic bribery between the automated election machine supplier and Comelec chair, Andres Bautista as divulged by his wife, Patricia Bautista. He urged everyone to let the authorities decide on the matter.

Spare Liza Marcos

The former Senator denied that his wife, Liza Marcos was the bridge of the meeting between the President and Mrs. Bautista who is battling a personal conflict with her husband over their finances. “We don’t interfere in marital quarrels,” he told reporters in an interview at the House of Representatives.



Marital Affairs

Du30 also confirmed meeting separately with the Bautistas in Malacañang after Patricia called his attention on her accusations against her husband. She speculates that he has unexplained wealth worth nearly P1 billion. He, however, refused to meddle on the marital issues and channeled the alleged anomaly to the investigators.




No Comment

Marcos does not want to comment on the hidden wealth anomaly of Chairman Bautista as revealed by his wife. Reporters are adamant to get his side because this case directly favors his election protest against VP Leni Robredo. He insists after all that he had no knowledge whatsoever in the said issue.









Immaterial

The namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos stresses that his opinion is immaterial if he believes in the accusation or not. It is better to let the case go through its due course. Like the President, he does not want to influence the authorities’ finding on the matter because of the political situation that he is in.

Bautista’s 2016 Election Highlights: Sex, Smartmatic and Bongbong Marcos

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

In a shocking admission, Comelec Chair Andres Bautista revealed that he was a victim of theft and sexual abuse at the time his wife took all the alleged documents and bank statements that are now being presented. His sex life is now out in the open. Commission sidelines are divulged and Bongbong Marcos is implicated in the process that also discredits the integrity of the 2016 election.

[VIDEO]: Hindi si misis, kundi si mister ang nangangaliwa, ayon sa abogado ni Patricia Bautista na si Atty. Lorna Kapunan. Dagdag pa ni Kapunan, may kakaibang hilig o fetish si Andres Bautista pagdating sa sex.




Comelec Chair’s Sexual Fantasy

Patricia Bautista’s lawyer insists that it’s not her client who had extra-marital affairs but it’s the chairman who has some kind of “Latigo” sexual fantasy. He even has accounts in some pornographic sites where he is into young boys or he sometimes portrayed himself as a woman. One of their condo units was even converted into a sex den. She divulges this to justify that it’s not Mrs. Bautista who is immoral but the Comelec Chairman.



Smartmatic Deal during Election

In her statement to the NBI, Mrs. Bautista said that her husband got commissions from Divina law firm. These are referral fees for Smartmatic, Baseco, and the United Coconut Planters Bank. “Nilo Divina’s checks in Bautista’s name can prove this.” Smartmatic is the supplier of vote counting machines. Divina did not elaborate on his plans to file a complaint against her but confirmed that he will file a libel case against her.




PCGG Ghost Employees

Mrs. Bautista’s lawyer also discloses that Chairman Bautista also had some ghost employees when he was PCGG chair. She tries to prove that Andres Bautista is corrupt contrary to his allegations against his wife. That she just wants money. Therefore, she allows herself to be used by politicians.









Evidence vs Hearsays on Bongbong Marcos

Since PCGG is an agency that chases the alleged stolen wealth of the Marcoses, Bongbong Marcos easily surfaces into the scenario without mentioning his name. This disclosure of Mrs. Bautista is just in time for the upcoming recount for his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. However, the chairman’s political defense remains hearsays compared to the evidence presented by his wife.
