Malacañang Admits: Duterte Got ‘Outside Help’ During 2016 Presidential Elections

E28F9C64-356C-4685-B03B-007AECA1409DMANILA, 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:

72A96E24-4CAC-4519-85E0-BC94D732DD84”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.
