Lacson wants senators charged for fund misuse

MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Panfilo Lacson wants graft charges filed against senators found to have misused Senate funds including the millions of pesos in maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) for their respective offices and staff.

Lacson, chair of the Senate committee on accounts, has proposed a full audit by the Commission on Audit (COA) on how the Senate and all the senators disburse and use their regular as well as additional MOOE.

“The desired end state of my proposal is to file graft charges against the senator/s concerned if the evidence warrants. Incidentally, these documents are all in the records of the Senate,” Lacson said in a text message.

He said the chamber had in its records documents indicating the use of Senate funds by a senator to pay rent and for repairs of “his/her satellite office” which is located in “his/her own building.”

Lacson also mentioned the inclusion of the senator’s household helpers in “his/her office payroll” and disbursing MOOE as “grocery allowance of his [wife]/her husband or son.”

He made the remarks in the wake of his own verbal exchange through the media with Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who had criticized Lacson for supposedly defending Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile’s yearend release of P1.6-million in additional MOOE.


COA full audit

“The logical conclusion of all the accusations hurled by Senator Santiago against the Senate as an institution and all the senators must be a full audit by COA on how the Senate and all the senators disburse and use our regular as well as additional MOOE,” Lacson said.

“[This is] with the end view of looking into possible abuse committed by individual senators in the use of those monies,” he added.

Lacson’s proposal, however,  came after Enrile’s and Santiago’s tirade against each other in the media appeared to have subsided after Santiago’s media staff announced that she had suffered from a mild stroke.

Santiago’s personal cardiologist was quoted as saying that Santiago’s “political enemies might be dancing on her grave if she continues to fight them single-handedly.”

To which, Lacson said, “Nobody in his right mind will dance on somebody else’s grave even if the person under the ground dug her own grave.”

Earlier this week, Lacson called Santiago “a crusading crook” after she supposedly undermined the integrity of senators when she questioned Enrile’s release of additional MOOE when Senate offices were about to wind down for the end of 2012.

“Senator Miriam Santiago is what we may call a ‘crusading crook.’ She pretends to be clean when she is not,” Lacson said.

‘Hypocrite par excellence’

Lacson added that Santiago was a “hypocrite par excellence” without “a single shred of integrity in her veins and moral ascendancy over any mortal on earth.”

“Ask people who have fallen victim to her verbal threats and assaults and they will tell you how much they shelled out [for her to stop],” he added.

In a television interview earlier this week, Santiago lambasted a senator for defending Enrile and what she called the irregular release of MOOE at yearend.

    palagay ko kong hypocrite si santaigo mas hypocrite itong si lacson.  the former is a crusading crook while the other is a crusading fugitive..ahahaa

       Pareho silang crusaders

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/WOQZ4TACZMBPIQV4UA6QVB4RSA noli

        Sa totoo lang wala silang “crusade” dahil kung lilimiin ng lahat ang mga naunang “crusaders” ay napapatay sa kanilang krusada, at sa bagong panahon, katulad ni Ninoy Aquino, at ng pinatay na doctor at komentarista sa Palawan pati ang Botanist na napatay sa Leyte (pasensiya na’t nawaglit sa aking isipan ang kanilang mga pangalan) at iba pa,
        Sila ang mga tunay na “crusaders” hindi katulad ni Ping Lacson at Miriam, dahil sa aking palagay ang kanilang “crusade,” kung hindi “to spite in aid of vengeance” ay “for convenience” personal at pinalalabas para magpakitang gilas,, pero hindi dahil sa sila’y tunay na nakonsensiya.

    How did Lacson becomes Enrile’s spokesman, protector and  attack dog ?

  • Patrick

    It’s embarrassing to have our senators go at it against each other and make spectacles of themselves. This is not proper behavior and only further diminishes the credibility of the Senate. Instead of taking snipes at each other, maybe they should spend more time making the country better.

    The majority of the Filipino people think that most politicians are crooks. Ping calling Miriam a crook is nothing more than a pot calling a kettle black. Just do some actual work already.

    • 12JEM

       Senators ratting against each other is not embarrassing for the nation. In fact, it should be welcome para baka naman may pag-asa pang magbago ang mga kalakaran diyan sa Senado.

      Sa House of Representatives and even in the Supreme Court ang Savings ginagawa talaga praa maging bonus nila or gift para sa sari-sarili nila.

  • wawa2172

    Now what else can the senators hide, thanks to the so called “crusading crook” in Santiago and the “attack dog, crusading fugitive, rubout lord, Mr. Expose Kuno” in Lacson that senate has been exposed. Enrile, Santiago and Lacson are last on their terms at the senate at sana huwag na silang bumalik dahil sa kapal nang libag nila on the misuse of senate funds. Ping may not have pork but in receiving the additional MOOE and cash gift, defending Enrile on his action places him on the same level as a crooked being a brothers keeper. I just hope that COA will charge the senators with plunder so that all will go to jail directly and disqualified to hold public office if convicted. In an interview with COA’s Grace Pulido Tan, she informed the media that senators just issue list of expenses certification without official receipts as supporting documents. It time to suspend the senate for months so COA can work on senate anomaly. I am sure Corona who was convicted by the senate impeachment court is bit happy on what is going on at the senate who convicted him. The lower house should be audited also, pag sabayin para walang lusot. Sigi Pingk, expose mo lahat nang anomalya nyo sa Senate but dapat isali mo ang sarili mo. Baka pumasok ka sa witness protection program to protect yourself but you need ligaw to De Lima.

  • LabkoPinas

    In the humorous side, I guess Mr. Lacson is trying to look for paying participants for his up and coming seminar : “How to avoid getting caught when you have a warrant of arrest” . P1,000,000.00 for an eight hour course. he, he, he. He really knows how to make money.
    what can you expect? A PMA graduate, a policeman and then now a senator. He has the PhD!

    Enrile can always use his senility as an excuse for corruption, santiago her insanity, and lapid his stupidity, among many others. The senate, like all other government branches, is a laughing stock. No statesmanship, just selfishness.

    What’s funny is this will never get anywhere. All senators are guilty of misuse of their funds so no one will support Lacson.

  • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

    Lacson — ” I want senators charged for fund misuse.”

    Nice sound bite. Except that Lacson knows this will never happen. Because of senate’s own resolution, MOOE’s need not be liquidated. No supporting documents such as receipts or vouchers are needed. All that is required is a certification by the senator that such and such amount were used for such and such item. Nothing more. COA Chair Grace Pulido-Tan lamented on 24 Horas and TV Patrol interviews the fact that the senate and the congress passed their own resolutions to preclude real auditing of how MOOEs are spent.

    But let´s take another look at Panfilo Lacson´s another recent statement during a radio interview by GMA7´s Nimfa Ravello last Sunday Jan 13, 2013:

    “Miriam should lead by example. Otherwise, the other 22 senators need not rise to the challenge of greater transparency.”

    So if Miriam is a crook, hypothetically, then all the other 22 senators are free to be crooks?

    Baluktot talaga itong si Lacson. To think PNoy is even contemplating on giving Lacson a cabinet post. Kawawang Pilipinas.

    Ramos, Enrile and Lacson are all working with dictator Marcos. I’m wondering why? na wala silang alam sa pagkamatay ni Ex-Senator Benigno Aquino. Don’t tell me that all of you are still working with Marcos on that time. How about the Yamashita gold? Maybe ex-Pres Ramos can answer it?

  • katindig

    If all senators will be investigated for fund misuse …all of them will go to jail…look who is talking…the best thing all Senators will do to keep the Senate clean is to give up their PORK BARREL  because their job is to legislate  laws not to make  projects.  WE all know that SENATORS SPEND MILLIONS JUST TO WIN A SENATE SEAT FOR 90,000 SALARY?  COME ON,  NO PERSON IN HIS RIGHT MIND WILL  INVEST MILLIONS JUST TO HAVE A 90,000 SALARY…

  • est

    Look who’s talking

  • kilabot

    coa audit will not happen; 
    because it will start an all-encompassing audit on the executive, legislative and judiciary; 
    if done right, nobody will remain in office; 
    including noykapon, the pdi filipina of the year 2012.

  • LegalJustice

    No wonder no wonder, no woder  these Senators were getting richer and amassing wealth on all shape and form – now since this is  now in the open on how they operate the Senate Funds and Pork Barrel its now time to change the protocol how to release those funds once and for all.

    And its now time to abolish that “Pork Barrel ” they should change the protocol on how to give funds and no wonder why some of these celebrities want to join the band wagon as a politician  – no wonder, no wonder, no woder.

    I agree with Sen Miriam Denfesor Santiago the qualification should be change: The Candidate should be a College Graduate and this must be put to law.

    If they won’t change the way they run the business in the Senate with the Senate Funds then Filipino People should stop paying there taxes – These people are paying there taxes with there hard earned money while these crooks will just abuse the system.

    No wonder the DEFICIT OF THE PHILIPPINES is going haywire !

    JPE gives away a Christmas Bonuses when in fact its not his money – Its People Money. Instead using the fund surplus to the affected area in typhoon: Pablo he gives it as he owns these money its just plain and simple bribery – no justication is needed for these is obviously what is all about for 2013 Election is just around the corner.

    This Old man should be ousted out as Senate President he is a bad example – period.

  • GlenMJacob

    Lets start with the senators. Have the COA audit them and bare to the public. Now come on Lacson do the walk not all talk. The toilet in the senate is getting more stinkier !.

  • mapicchu

    the best way to stop all these is to cancel the pdaf immediately. all expenses/budget should be requested for with proper justification,  for all senators/congressmen…an audit will take time…coa will not have the resources to do audits within one year.  lets see who will still want to be senator/congressman.

    But how can COA audit them when receipts are not required in the first place? Is there a ceiling for every item? Like maximum amount of office repairs, etc. If both are not required, then this only sounds like a political gimmick.

Maliliit na nga ang mga sweldo ng mga nagbabayad ng buwis tapos kakaltasan pa ng tax bago yun pala ay ipinangreregalo lang ng senate president e, hindi makatarungan. Di bale kung sa nasalanta ng bagyo ibinigay, kaso sa mga senador na may mga nakalaan namang mga pondo. At saka kung tutuusin ay mga milyonario silang lahat… Niloloko naman ni Lolong Johnny ang taumbayan… Silipin lahat ang mga budget nila unahin si Lolong Johnny na walang karespe-respeto sa mga mamamayan akala mo kanya ang pondo ng senado…

    Talking Points:
    1. Lacson dared Mirriam to show to the public how she spent her budget before he does the same. Lacson is like a small boy. Why doesnt he do it first ?
    2. Lacson says that Mirriam is coming out with issues against her fellow senators as if she is clean. Are you clean also Mr. Lacson ?
    3.Lacson, to show that he is clean has asked COA to audit all senators. He knows fully well that
    COA will never audit the high and mighty and powerful senators.
    4. There are 3 senators you should not cross paths with – Enrile, Lacson, Estrada and Honasan.

    You don’t want to name names coz you would essentially be naming every single Senator but with that much money that they get which is i believe is P200M per year or something and with the minimal gains being seen in the country…it wouldn’t be a surprised that the money is channeled elsewhere. People in power in the Philippines misuse their power and abuse it…and the same Senator making these claims is no different.
