New York Alumna slams Ping Lacson re endorsement of Mar Roxas

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is hitting the headlines.
This after he publicly stated the personalities which he has endorsed this coming May mid term elections, most specially those vying for the post as senators.
Bunch of reelectionists, Mar Roxas and Dr. Willie Ong were the ones he endorsed, but what made the waves is him endorsing the former Secretary of Interior and Local Government and former Liberal Party Presidential candidate Mar Roxas.

In a press briefing Lacson, said Roxas will be an asset in the Senate.
"He’s a good addition kasi sa acumen niya. Marami tayong bills na nagre-refer na makatulong sa economy, sa development. So he’s an asset to say the least na maging senator come 2019," he said.
Further, he categorically cleared Mar Roxas of any wrondoings as regards the Yolanda Funds when the later was the DILG chief then.
"We would just like to correct that very wrong impression na si Sen. Roxas parang abused the funds," Lacson said.
"Huwag naman ibato sa kanya ang Yolanda funds because he never took advantage. There was no way for him to have that opportunity to take advantage," the senator said.

"Wala naman talaga siyang kinalaman sa pondo ng Yolanda except ang DILG [Department of Interior and Local Government] nag-provide ng cash assistance sa LGU and dumaan sa kaniya," he said.

Duterte supporter and famous blogger Ms. Krizette Laureta Chu, gave the endorsing senator a piece of her mind, which has gathered she enumerated the instances and the flaws of Mar Roxas before, during, and after the Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda wrecked the whole of Eastern Visayas.
For purposes of public knowledge , clarity and truthfulness, we are quoting full Ms. Krizette Facebook post below.

Dear Ping Lacson, you weren't there when Mar Roxas completely lost control over the rescue, relief, and rehab phases--ALL THREE PHASES--during the Yolanda operation.

When did you come in as rehab chief?

You werent there when he couldn't control the looting, and when there were jailbreaks, and when there were home invasions. You weren't there when the government prematurely decided to pull out the additional policemen. You weren't there when Roxas didn't act quick enough to provide security to the region as chaos ensued.

You weren't there when he took his sweet time deciding what to do with the bodies that littered the streets, so that mothers had to sleep with their dead children while starving. You weren;t there when food and emergency supplies did not come, with some places still unreached at the one-week mark. You did not even call him out that the emergency fund to be given ASAP were given to some years after Yolanda happened. Emergency funds, and yet they are so proud to have the budget "untouched"--untouched while people suffered in their decrepit homes.

There are so many other factors to the Yolanda rehab that do not even involve money.

And even if the LGUs failed, as you were quick to claim, he was the HEAD OF THE ENTIRE LGU as DILG chief. What kind of reasoning is this? It's called command responsibility.

The LGUs failed because they themselves were affected and there were thousands of people dead. How could a region like Leyte/Samar handle something that wretched? How could our national government fail in providing the most basic necessities?

We're not even talking about money, Sen. Lacson, or why Mar should not be blamed for the mishandling.

Do you mean to diminish the suffering of the entire Yolanda experience as a simple budget misappropriation?

Mar's failures isn't just about how he failed to do his job well as the DILG head, not just fiscally, although as a self-touted economist, what a stain on his credentials to not have foreseen the economic damage and ramifications to the people affected.

No, we're not talking just money.

We're talking efficiency. We're talking responsibility. We're talking decisiveness in the face of chaos. We're talking leadership. We're talking empathy. We're talking kindness. We're talking qualities that we badly need in our leaders.

Sorry Sen Lacson, but you don't know what you're talking about.

What can you say about this?
