Manny Villar’s bad hair week

AS I WRECK THIS CHAIR
By William M. Esposo
It is believed that the drop in Villar’s ratings was caused by the many issues hounding him — from corruption, land grabbing and bribery to obscene election spending which violates the spirit of the Fair Elections Act for a level playing field. This 6% drop could be only the beginning of a bigger drop as more Villar issues continue to emerge.
To add to these issues that have been hounding Villar when the Pulse Asia February 21-25 poll was made, he was cited last February 27 by Comelec Commissioner Rene Sarmiento for possible vote buying. Villar’s group was caught on video giving money to kids and awarding scholarships during their February 25 free concert at the Mall of Asia. This is ground for disqualification.
Last week, Villar was accused by Senator Dick Gordon of having attempted to bribe him through an intermediary last January for a favorable vote in the Villar Senate Ethics Case. Gordon’s vote would have ousted Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and effectively quashed the Villar Ethics Case.
