‘Funny guy’ daw! BBM hits Macalintal for downplaying ballot box issues
Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr slammed the lawyer of Vice President Leni Robredo for disregarding the observations he made on the ballot boxes to be used in the ballot recount.
The Ilocano politiko called out election abogado Romulo Macalintal for downplaying the wet ballots from Bato town, Camarins Sur, where Robredo is from.
He said wetting ballots before the recounting of votes “has been the practice of the cheaters to wet the ballots before recounting the votes.”
“We find it ridiculous, almost laughable, that Robredo’s lawyer, Attorney Macalintal, readily explained that the reason why the ballot boxes were wet was because there was a storm in Camarines Sur,” said Marcos.
“The last storm in Camarines occurred four full months ago. Funny guy,” he added.
Na-offend ata sa basa!
1. In election protests at the local level, it has been the practice of the cheaters to wet the ballots before recounting the votes. This morning, upon entering the Supreme Court, we were surprised to find FIVE ballot boxes — the contents of which were soaked in water. All five ballot boxes were from Camarinas Sur, the hometown of Leni Robredo. 2. We find it ridiculous, almost laughable, that Robredo’s lawyer, Attorney Macalintal, readily explained that the reason why the ballot boxes were wet was because there was a storm in Camarines Sur. The last storm in Camarines occurred FOUR FULL MONTHS AGO. Funny guy. Here's the most important part: what Macalintal seems to have forgotten is that not only are the ballot boxes 100% weather proof, they're also waterproof. Unless the boxes were intentionally and maliciously tampered with, the ballots would have remained dry. 3. After doing everything in their power to delay this recount, Robredo’s camp suddenly spun their story and said they’re CONFIDENT she'll win. What a strange and suspicious shift of tone after two years. Now we know why. Tama na ang kasinungalingan. Tama na ang dayaan. Obvious na masyado. This is about the fundamental principle that holds our democracy in place — our right to vote. THIS is what we are fighting for.
