Biggest spender landed at 16th

Roxas top campaign spender among Otso Diretso bets
Published June 14, 2019 9:36am
By LLANESCA T. PANTI, GMA News

Quote:
Former Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II dwarfed the election spending of his fellow opposition candidates in the Otso Diretso coalition by six to as much as 90 times, based on his Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE).

Figures on Roxas' SOCE showed him spending P179.193.153.04 for his 2019 Senate bid sourced from P167,050,000 million worth of cash contributions and P12,143,153.04 million worth of personal funds.

Roxas' campaign expenditure was even bigger than the P161 million spent by former Special Assistant to the President and now Senator-elect Christopher “Bong” Go.

Roxas finished 16th in the 2019 Senate race with 9.84 million votes.

Yes I know that. I was making fun of the OP's post. Geez.

Did you know I contribute as well (on ad hoc, kung may sobra)? I don't even get to claim tax deductible because it is in the PH. Friends and family do too. One friend estabished their own private foundation (because they have too much money), and have a selection process in place. So we're not ignorant of this. Did you know that the gov't Apayao sends their post secondary students to Cagayan State University in Sanchez Mira? All of them are scholars of the Apayao gov't (since Apayao doesn't have post secondary institutions.) Of course, now with the free tuition at State Colleges, that would be an academic point. "Social responsibility" has been around for decades nothing new to me. I was involve in a few initiatives in my heyday, like UNICEF. What else do you want to brag to people who you assume know nothing.

I was efffffng joking about having a foundation for colegialas who do part time work to top up their load. Of course that shouldn't be a problem anymore if they go to state institutions.

Tindi na ni Trillanes. Pati KAPA eh pinatulan na't impeachable offense daw yung ginawa ni Dugong pinasara.

Meron pang ganito:

^ Mas maganda ma-interview ang cook. NOT the sleeping Captain or the boat owner who wasn't there.

Kuda ng Kuda si Kap..eh tulog sha at the moment of the supposed collision.

Tapos itong si Misis naman, kumuda na din...eh ikaw mismo nagsabi sa mister mo wag puntahan si Dugong.

^ It's very amusing. Makes for good entertainment. Dilawans can't stop talking about it. Using the HK protests in parallel with this issue... And just today, using Ping's statements.

wala ba silang ilaw for other fishing vessels to see? parang ang dating kasi hindi talaga sila kita so partly to blame sila doon, mukhang aksidente nangyari without the intention to do it in the first place. pero after the fact ibang issue na naman yun. hirap kasi maghanap tamang sources dahil politicized na lahat with halong drama pa.

You know...all you have to do is go to a beach that is near fishing grounds and even though its so dark, you can see the bright flood lights of the fishing boats anchored. So I don't understand why this fishing boat only has cabin lights on. Maybe they were negligent and did not bother turning on the flood lights?

Then some idiot senator claims all boats have radar, GPS and such. Really? Our fishing bankas have radar and GPS? If we don't mandate them with our vessels, why expect them from foreign ships? Such devices are installed regardless of rules of the seas since the primary motivation is safety above all else. But here in ukay ukay PILIPINS, safety takes a back seat due to the tipid at all cost, cheapest available crap mentality. I don't even remember seeing radar and GPS in those Boracay water taxis that ferry high end clientele from the mainland to the beach resort.

I hope Dugong orders all of his officials to STFU and appoint a single spokesperson for this.

Kung si SFA o CabSec, then let it be. But there must be only ONE.

Minsan naakainis na rin si Dugong sa strategy niya pero one has to be rational and not be carried by emotion in this highly sensitive issue.

If we're frustrated by Dugong's [in]action, just imagine what Ma'am VP will do...dioskodai hardline stance part 2 all air no power na naman...
