Senator Leila De Lima fired back at Senator Richard Gordon after the latter belittled the award the lady senator received in the US, for being one of the leading “global thinkers.”
In her social media account, De Lima “apologized” for not having an award on being a suck-up to the president.
De Lima’s tweet came after Gordon’s statement that allegedly, De Lima is just fishing to gain credibility.
Before leaving the country, the lady senator is facing multiple charges in the Senate and the Department of Justice.
The said cases stemmed from her alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison, and prohibiting her former driver, bodyguard and lover, Ronnie Dayan from attending the House hearing on illegal drugs operations.
