MEANWHILE BACK IN ALI BABA’S CAVE…
Raul Lambino, Gloria’s lawyer and spokesman, responds to the statements of another set of witnesses to the cheating in the 2004 election:
“Those same allegations were already investigated thoroughly before and even exposed in media. Now, personalities with their own political agenda to advance are like hyenas savoring to devour their fallen prey by capitalizing on matters that in their minds will help them earn some points from the unsuspecting public”
Raul Gonzales, Gloria’s justice secretary, asking why these allegations were not investigated before, adds:
“Palagay ko gawa-gawa lang iyan eh..just either for publicity or they are being paid…whatever reason self-motivated yan”
And Ali Baba wraps it up
“Our persecution continues. We are continuously being vilified and maligned based on hearsay evidence. I don’t know these people who are spreading these lies about me. After more than a year in office, it’s still all politics. For a non-performing administration, we are being used as scapegoats. We are being used as a media fodder to mask this administration’s lack of solid and long-term economic program.”
Parang sumasakit din ang leeg ko, sa may batok. Na high-blood yata ako sa mga pinagsasabi ng mga gunggong na yan.
