A Facebook user claims without offering proof that a foundation outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo is launching on July 1 is a “shadow government” that may seek to overthrow the incoming government of presumptive president Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

It then shows an image of a list of senatorial candidates on Robredo’s slate and along with their respective sectors. Most of these policy areas match what the candidates had campaigned on.

The post has generated negative comments against Robredo, with some accusing her of planning to raise money and work underground with leftist elements against the incoming government.

The outgoing vice president has repeatedly been falsely linked to the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People’s Army.

FactRakers is a Philippines-based fact-checking initiative of journalism majors at the University of the Philippines-Diliman working under the supervision of Associate Professor Yvonne T. Chua of the University of the Philippines’ Journalism Department. Associate Professor Ma. Diosa Labiste, also of the Journalism Department, serves as editorial consultant.

The name of the initiative, coined from the words “fact” and “raker,” is inspired by the term “muckrakers,” first used in the early 1900s by American president Theodore Roosevelt to express his annoyance at progressive, reform-minded journalists at the time.
