MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She made headlines in the local news media as the next U.S. Ambassador the the Philippines, something that the U.S. Embassy has denied. But true or not, this ends all speculation about Mina Chang who just resigned her post at the U.S. State Department.
Chang was accused of padding her resume and even faking a Time Magazine cover with her photo in it. She has denied the allegations.
In a Skype interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Chang also categorically denied that she obtained her fake credentials from Metro Manila’s Recto Avenue, infamous for producing fake documents — from passports to birth certificates to college diplomas.
”I’ve never even been to Recto, nor knew I could actually buy fake documents for a cheap price,” she said.
Well, she’ll never ever be in the U.S. Embassy in Manila — at least not as Ambassador.
