Daughters bring Gwen’s fight to cyberspace
Days after her suspension was handed down, family members and supporters of Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia mounted a blogsite called standupcebu.blogsite.com.
The blog describes itself as “Your number one source for news on the Governor of the Province…”. and campaigns for “justice” for the beleaguered Gwen.
It’s first post is an article by her youngest daughter, Carissa Codilla Aznar-Beane, who lives with her husband and two children in Arizona, USA.
Her piece “Dear Sir, You Are Not My Country” is addressed to President Benigno Aquino III , whom she criticzed for illegally unseating her mother.
“I love the Philippines. But it’s because of people like you that I choose to stay in the land of the free where democracy is celebrated, and the law respected,” she wrote.
She said the President’s action “only shows your ingenous underestimation of the Garcias.”
Another blog entry by elder daughter Christina Garcia-Frasco, a Capitol consultant and lawyer, discusses their legal defense in the P98.9 million Balili land purchase case pending in the Sandiganbyan and the construction of the Cebu International Convention Center also under investigation by the Ombudsman.
