Where does Bong Go get his funds? - De Lima

“Huwag nyo akong ihalintulad sa inyo." 

This seems to capsulate the whole message former special assistant, long time side  to the President and senatorial candidate Bong Go to the opposition’s detained senator alleged drug queen Leila de Lima.

The Detained senator raised questions regarding Bong Go’s the source of his campaign funds.

She calls Go as “the template of epal politics,” since the latter’s tarpaulins and billboards have  been spotted in various strategic locations all over the country.

“Bong Go is everywhere, inescapable in all sizes and in all forms. There has been an ongoing invasion of public spaces by his tarpaulins and expensive billboards, and on TV, radio, print and social media, he’s ubiquitous these past months. He obviously has a well-oiled electoral machinery. But where does he get the funds?” De Lima said from a dispatch from Camp Crame.

“He does all these even way before the start of the official campaign period, taking advantage of a gap in our election laws and jurisprudence which tolerates premature campaigning.” She adds.

No Delicadeza and acts “highly irregular and questionable.”
De Lima further adds that Go’s case “is so brazen in its utter lack of delicadeza,”, the latter is still being seen with the President in official public events, despite already resigning from his post as a Special Assistant to the President.
“It’s even akin to usurpation of authority, since someone else is supposed to have taken already his previous functions as SAP. But since he continues to act as Duterte’s super alalay, it is safe to presume that public funds are also expended while he is campaigning early… and still assuming the SAP role,” De Lima said.
De Lima also slams Go for allegedly taking advantage of  government-funded projects to advance his senatorial bid. She said she find these acts “highly irregular and questionable.”
“And so gracious of him to be regularly distributing dole outs and relief goods, laden with his name and campaign color, in almost all calamity-stricken areas. But again, I ask, are the millions of pesos expended for these sourced from Bong Go’s personal funds or otherwise?” De Lima said.
“Habang ang ibang mga kandidato ay abalang inaayos ang kanilang plataporma at mga isyung nais tugunan at mga batas na nais isulong, si Bong Go ay abala sa pagrampa gamit ang makinarya at pondo ng gobyerno.

Go fires back at De Lima

Go , in a prepared statement refutes the allegations of De Lima against him.
“Unang una, kami po ni Pangulong Duterte ay palaging sumusunod sa batas. Wala po kaming hangarin kundi tumulong at ipaglaban ang kabutihan ng bawat Pilipino,” Go said.
Go explains that he has friends who supports him in his endeavours, and he denies using any government funds for his road trips all over the country.
“Marami akong mga kaibigan na naniniwala sa aking ipinaglalaban at tumutulong sa akin na maghatid ng tulong sa ating mga kababayan na nabiktima ng sunog at iba pang uri ng trahedya. Hindi ako katulad ni Sen. De Lima na umano’y gumamit ng pondo galing sa mga drug lords para sa kanyang ambisyong politikal,” Go said.
“Malinis ang konsensya ko. Hindi galing sa mga drug lords ang perang ginagamit ko sa pagtulong, hindi katulad ng iba dyan na hindi na nga nakakatulong, nanggugulo at nakikisawsaw pa, pinoprotektahan pa ang mga kriminal. Huwag nyo akong ihalintulad sa inyo," he added.
