MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – What’s bad for the goose is bad for the gander.
At a recent Senate hearing on “fake news,” Senator Kiko Pangilinan admonished resource person R.J. Nieto (a.k.a. Thinking PInoy) that because he is now a consultant with the Department of Foreign Affairs, he is subject to the code of ethics for government workers, officials and employees.
Nieto, along with blogger Mike Acebedo Lopez, had been criticized for taking a photo in front of the office of Leila De Lima in an apparent taunt directed at the incarcerated senator.
Well, the next day, several Senate employees posed in front of De Lima’s office, in what was supposed to be a direct response to the Lopez-Nieto photo.
Well, the Senate employees are now facing termination for violation of the code of ethics for government employees.
The dismissed employees have expressed anger towards Pangilinan, and are planning to appeal their termination.
What’s bad for the goose is bad for the gander.
