At a glance: A Facebook post has been spreading (ever since Ping Lacson left Partido para sa Demokratikong Reporma) that VP Leni paid P800 million to Davao del Norte Rep. Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez so that the Reporma Party which he heads will support her. (https://www.facebook.com/1770728986306931/posts/5263716643674797/)
The Facts: According to Robredo’s campaign team, they do not have P800 million to offer in exchange for Alvarez’s support for Leni’s presidential bid.
According to her spokesperson Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s presidential campaign is motivated by volunteerism and initiative.
Barry Gutierrez wrote on Twitter, “Our campaign thrives on initiative and volunteerism, and we certainly do not have 800M pesos to give away to anyone. The support for VP Leni’s presidential bid is anchored on the hope that she can reform the government and bring a better future for all Filipinos. #AngatBuhayLahat.”
