Bongbong Marcos’ Detractors
Bongbong Marcos’ detractors using the DQ cases against him emerged as the culprits as Comelec rules to disqualify all pending petitions related to this. Former Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon who acts like a crazy woman during media interviews loses her credibility as a lawyer when he calls Marcos a tax evader. Atty. Ted Te is the same. He knows as a lawyer that the petitions have no merit. But for the sake of his candidate, he rides on to the media propaganda until now.
Ferolino and Casquejo Junked the DQ Cases
Contrary to the dissenting opinion of Guanzon, the ponente, Aimee Ferolino and Commissioner Marlon Casquejo voted to junk the dq petitions against Bongbong Marcos in the first division. Guanzon can sense this. That’s why she broke the protocol. One cannot dissent an opinion if there’s no ponencia yet or the decision of the agency.
Most citizens of the Philippines who pay taxes knew that the case has no merit. It is clear that Bongbong Marcos as a government official had his taxes deducted. The 4 years of non-filing were also due to his family’s exile in the US. They might make a very dramatic act but it didn’t convince the Filipino people. Hence, they really looked like the bad guys here.
