MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In a piece written for South China Morning Post, blogger and self-proclaimed ‘investigative journalist’ Raissa Robles reported that then Presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte got ‘outside help’ that led to his election.
To Robles’ surprise, Malacañang today confirmed the report, saying:
”It is true that Duterte received outside help during the 2016 Presidential elections. In fact, he received votes from more that 313,000 Overseas Filipino Workers and Dual Citizens, representing more than 70% of outside voters.”
For once, Robles’ reporting is accurate.
