Senator Cynthia Villar on Wednesday revealed that two fellow senators from the minority block have been scheming to destroy her and her colleagues in the majority coalition.
Senate President Koko Pimentel, Majority leader Tito Sotto, Richard Gordon, Migz Zubiri, Gringo Honasan, Manny Pacquiao, as well as herself were outraged after being tagged as “Malacañang dogs” after allegedly failing to sign a resolution calling for the government to seize the killing of minors.
In the blog, the writer urged Filipinos to show their anger against the Senators for failing to sign the resolution.
Sotto claimed that he never received the said resolution and was intentionally being used to sabotage the seven Senators. Sotto went on to say that he would file a cyber-libel case against those behind the blog published by “Silent No More PH”.
Villar continued to name the two minority Senators as Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros, but clarified that she did not believe the rumors.
“There’s really somebody from the social media told me before, long time ago, that there are two senators who’s going to destroy us but I did not believe it. Its just that when I saw that blog then I started thinking that it was really true. So I want to clarify Bam and Risa. They told me really that Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros will try to destroy us” Cynthia said.
Hontiveros and Aquino both denied the accusation claiming that they were also victims of “fake news.”
