Ex-Comelec Chair Andy Bautista Proposes Swap With Jailed Senator Leila De Lima

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The outcry for the release of former Senator Leila De Lima more than 6 years of incarceration is growing louder and louder.

Today, De Lima received support from the most unexpected place — San Francisco, and the most unexpected individual — ex-Comelec Chair Andy

Bautista remains in hiding from Philippine authorities which have issued his arrest warrant for non-appearance at a Senate probe on “unexplained wealth,” an accusation coming from his own wife.

In a Twitter post, Bautista demanded that De Lima be freed now, offering to swap his luxurious life in the U.S. with De Lima’s solitary confinement in jail.

Almost immediately, the hashtag #FreeLeilaDeLima was replaced with #ArrestAndyBautistaNow.

Many netizens, however, commended Bautista for his courage, compassion for De Lima, and his true sense of
patriotism. What a man!
