President Aquino Tells Philippine Mayors: Time For Payback

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – In an unusual display of his administration’s anti-corruption mantra of Daang Matuwid (straight path), Philippine President NoyNoy Aquino told the country’s mayors that it was time for payback.

In a campaign appearance for the administration’s candidates for president and vice president, Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo, Aquino reminded the mayors of the funds they received from the national government, and that if they wanted to continue receiving funds, they should vote for Roxas and Robredo.

As far as we know, the funds never belonged to Aquino or his administration.  It belonged to the Filipino taxpayers.
