CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – Opposition vice-presidential candidate Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay admitted having an affair with another woman “a long time ago.”
Binay’s admission came a day after Pulse Asia showed him closing in on survey leader Liberal Party vice presidential bet Senator Manuel Roxas II.
Binay came clean about the affair after news desks and reporters received e-mails, which Binay termed black propaganda, about his extra-marital relationship.
“That happened. I’m not denying it. But that was already a long time ago. I already asked for forgiveness from my wife. We have already talked about that within our family,” Binay told reporters following the campaign of his standard-bearer former president Joseph Estrada.
“It’s not as if it happened yesterday or last year,” Binay said.
“If my ratings were not improving, we would not even talk about this. This is too much of black propaganda,” he added.
He declined to give any more information about the affair.
