I won’t ‘budots,’ steal if elected senator - Bong Revilla




It pays to be a movie star in the Philippines.
The country has always been since time in memorial enamored with celebrities so much so that some of them easily gets elected to national positions principally because of their celebrity status.

No different is senatorial candidate Ramon “Bong” Revilla. The only difference is he is still facing graft charges and his former chief aide remains in detention for the crime of plunder.

What pave the way for him to be able to seek a seat for senate was because he was cleared of plunder late last year over the multi-billion pork barrel scam.
It is because of this fact that worries some sectors of the public for his eventual return to the upper house.
Revilla has denied these baseless accusations that he would plunder the state coffers and would just do the “budots” dance if elected as senator, adding he was eyeing a senate seat to continue the reforms he initiated before.
“Hindi po ako magnanakaw at hindi po ako masamang tao,”Bong  Revilla, who was among the lawmakers tagged in the multi-million peso pork barrel scam, told DWIZ radio in an interview.
“Tayo ay magperform sa Senado. Hindi tayo magsasayaw lang diyan,” he added in response to critics online who are making fun of his political advertisement, where he danced to “budots” to woo voters while other Senate bets flaunted their achievements in their campaigns.
