QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – As reported by The Manila Bullletin, Vice President, Presidential aspirant, and widow of an Aquino cabinet member who died in a plane crash Leni Robredo has come out in the open to encourage vote-buying in the Philippines. Vote-buying is illegal in the country.
In a quote attributed to her, Robredo all but said that it is okay for Filipino voters to accept money from candidates who wish to pay for their votes, as long as they still vote according to their conscience.
Netizens immediately chastised Robredo for undermining voters’ integrity and commitment to fulfill their paid agreements with the paying candidates.
Still, others said they are open to being paid by the Robredo camp while still voting for Bongbong Marcos.
This is a developing story.
