Gigi Reyes: Time to look for source of Senate stink

By |


Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile did not quit, so she did.

“I believe what the public really hungers for is the truth about the officials they elected and how their money is spent or wasted. The people now believe that the Senate stinks,” Enrile’s chief of staff, Jessica “Gigi” Reyes said in a statement.

“It is sad but I so agree. It is time to look for where the stink is actually coming from,” she added.

While her ill-considered comments about Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano were the cause of her irrevocable resignation, Reyes said she also had “an honest difference of opinion” with her boss on how best to deal with the controversy over the disposition of Senate funds.

According to Reyes, Enrile could very well have explained how the Senate spends its P600 million in funds for maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) and how he had to maintain a balancing act to accommodate all the senators’ requests for extra office space and additional travel funds.

“But the Senate President did not want to embarrass his colleagues,” she said.

Undelivered speech

Reyes said she had drafted a speech for the Senate President—which in the event was left undelivered—in which Enrile would have declared that he was resigning irrevocably.

“The draft speech I prepared also contained a statement towards the end that he was resigning irrevocably as Senate President, something that he had been contemplating since Monday when his motion to declare the position of Senate President vacant was defeated,” she said.

The speech would have been Enrile’s response to Cayetano’s privilege speech last Wednesday in which the Senate President was questioned on how he was using or misusing the Senate’s funds. In his speech, Cayetano also insinuated that Reyes had an unseemly strong influence over the chamber as Enrile’s chief of staff.

But Enrile did not agree to deliver the speech, “understandably concerned that with the prevailing howl over the media, the Senate and his colleagues may be unduly placed in a bad light, in particular with respect to the budgets of the oversight committees that are locally funded by the Senate,” Reyes said.

Supported by documents

Reyes explained that the P600 million in Senate funds that Cayetano would like to subject to an independent audit actually represents the MOOE of the entire Senate Secretariat and that, contrary to the allegations, all expenses charged to that account are covered by supporting documents and vouchers available for everyone in the Senate to see.

“In fact, these expenses pass through several departments before reaching the secretary of the Senate who then submits them to the OSP for approval/signature. Senator Cayetano claimed that only the Office of the Senate President has access to these vouchers. That is not true,” she said.

According to Reyes, she tried to convince the Senate President to resign irrevocably, mainly over her disappointment that very few senators in the majority stood up with him to justify the regularity of the P1.6 million in additional MOOE he released to all but four senators last December.

“I had expected the other senators not so much to defend their leader, but to clarify, explain and defend their own honor and the honor of the Senate,” she said.

“The systematic disinformation and the malevolent attacks raged on, fueled by Sen. Antonio Trillanes’ tireless pronouncements that a change in leadership was in the offing. I did not know what to make of the conspicuous silence of the other members of the majority. I grant that some of them just did not want to be embroiled in the fray,” she said.

Even the Senate secretary general, Emma Reyes, did not want to be perceived as defending the Senate President, she said.

Reyes said she thought there was no point for Enrile “to continue to stick his neck out defending himself and his colleagues while the others except for a very few would rather just watch.”

“We had not been deluded by the so-called “vote of confidence” he gained when his motion was voted down, with 16 senators in attendance. It was not a moro-moro [a farce],” she said.

“He was ready to step down, and so he manifested that he would reiterate his motion when the others, especially all his detractors were present,” she said.

Apology to Cayetano

In her statement, Reyes issued a public apology to Cayetano for calling him a hypocrite in a dzMM radio interview.

In her remarks in the interview, Reyes noted that Cayetano and the three other senators—Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Pia Cayetano and Trillanes—who were raising a stink over the measly P250,000 they received from Enrile, had received similar dole-outs in previous years without incident.

“I profusely apologize to the honorable senator and minority floor leader, Alan Peter Cayetano, for my disrespectful and offensive statements and overbearing tenor as I was interviewed on dzMM Teleradyo last Monday, Jan. 21, 2013,” Reyes said.

She said she committed an act of disrespect in referring to Cayetano as  ‘Alan’ and “not addressing him properly as an elected senator of the Republic.”

‘Irrevocable’

“I committed a serious ethical breach in making the remark:  ‘They are hypocrites.’ I am sorry that I was driven by my emotional state, as the Senate President and I viewed and listened while [hosts] Ms Karen Davila and Mr. Vic Lima were obviously aghast and scandalized at Senator Cayetano’s allegations, apparently believing them to be the whole truth about the disposition of the Senate’s budget,” she said.

Reyes also reiterated her irrevocable resignation as Enrile’s chief of staff, which she said did not need the Senate President’s acceptance.

    Gigi Reyes: “Time to look for source of Senate stink”

    Very often, the people who stink are the last to realize they stink. This is true in the case of Senator Gigi Reyes. Not only does she stink, her very presence in the senate together with her brother is rather fishy. If Enrile needs Gigi in his office so bad because he’s almost deaf and almost blind, it is high time that Enrile be seriously considered for disqualification from his senate post due to health reasons.

  • Rovingmoron

    It appears that this article is flavored with a little bit of humility. This time, Gigi tries to step back and recoup her balance, which was a good way to accept her own shortcomings.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/OLHP7TKAHADXWOJWBBPLTLLKNA Vincent

    “I believe what the public really hungers for is the truth about the officials they elected and how their money is spent or wasted. The people now believe that the Senate stinks, It is sad but I so agree. It is time to look for where the stink is actually coming from.”–Gigi Reyes

    Gigi, don’t look too far. And please don’t look beside you or behind you. The stink emanates from your own body. Rub your nose in your shoulder and you will smell it. That’s it. Did you smell it? See? Am I right? 

    The foul odor of your body originates from the stinking morality of your boss, much like the odor of a dead rotten rat. You absorbed the foul odor in his body and mind due to your long years of association with him. He has that bad odor since 1972, the day ML was proclaimed, after he ambushed himself to justify its proclamation. Your boss was the most important tool of a dictator in violating human rights, killing, torturing and abusing innocent political opponents. 

    Your boss never attempted to remove the stink in his body and mind by continually abusing the power bestowed on him after EDSA1. He even financed coups led by Honasan against Cory hoping he can be a president, too.

    As SP, he used the power of the purse to buy the loyalty of fellow senators, who equally stink like him. 

    Gigi, I agree with you there is stink in the senate but I disagree when you say you are clueless where the stink is coming from. You know it when you poke your nose in your own body.

    • where_I_stand

      Assertions devoid of facts are rants.

      “Gigi, don’t look too far. And please don’t look beside you or behind you. The stink emanates from your own body. Rub your nose in your shoulder and you will smell it. That’s it. Did you smell it? See? Am I right?”

      These are all assertions. No facts. It is hatred I sense.

      ***
      “The foul odor of your body originates from the stinking morality of your boss, much like the odor of a dead rotten rat.”

      Stinking morality?

      [1] Sins of Enrile, not today but of yesterday, during martial law:
      Being with Marcos when martial law was declared, the ambush was used by Marcos to justify the imposition of martial law, dictator’s tool for human rights violations, killing, torturing, abusing ‘innocent’ political opponents.

      If these are supported by proofs, Enrile would have been in prison for a long time. And yet, he is a free man. If you go to court with these heavy accusation without any supporting evidence to the accused, what do you think is the action of the court? To accuse anyone is easy, but to prove the guilt of the accused you need to have a proof of his guilt. It is mind-boggling why the entity between your ears cannot understand it.

      Do you think Enrile will give the court the evidence of his guilt? Don’t make yourself a fool.

      [2] Sin of Enrile, not today but of yesterday, during the incumbency of Pres. Cory Aquino:
      Financed coups led by Honasan…hoping he can be president, too.

      This is pure tsismis. No factual basis.The justification of financing coups in order to become president is a good plot for fiction movies. If this accusation has factual basis, Pres Cory herself would order the arrest of Enrile and Honasan. The Filipino people who loved Cory would have not elected Enrile and Honasan to the Senate. Are you thinking?

      [3] Sin of Enrile, today, as Senate President:
      Buying the loyalty of the senators.

      The issue being raised in the Senate is not the legal issue of realignment of the Senate savings and their distribution to the senators because the GAA authorizes the SP to do so. COA head affirmed the legality of the realignment and distribution of funds to the offices of the senators as additional MOOE.

      The issue is the selective distribution. Is there a law that prohibits the SP to selectively distribute the said funds? Clearly, the SP has the prerogative in the distribution of funds. These funds were channeled thru the offices of the senators, subject to liquidation and audit.

      Is this buying of loyalty?

      If I am a senator who gets the additional funds, which is subject to liquidation and audit, I will treat the funds as office funds, not personal funds. Since I cannot freely use them for my pleasure, it is not a good strategy in buying my loyalty. In fact, there is no transaction that takes place. I gained nothing from the said buying of loyalty.

      Your accusation of stinking morality has no basis.

      • roy roy

        You talk as if you are in a fantasy world. You live in the Phils.! Nobody has gone to jail for the Martial Law, nobody! After all the thousands of murders and rapes and other abuses. Enrile is second only to Marcos during Martial Law.
        And you saying that the MOOE cannot be used as personal funds by senators is naive or simply putting an argument that is not applicable to the Phils. to cover your boss?

      • eirons1043

        You are very right there is no specific law about the irregular  actions made by Juanito and that is why kaya nagkalecheleche na ang bayan na ito kasi lahat kailangan legal daw pait nga Martial Law legal eh sabi ng Fernando Supreme Court kaya kahit isa walang nakulong.  We now arrive at the point that when you hear as a reason that everything is LEGAL eh kakabahan ka na kasi kahit maliwanag na kurakot at kawalanghiyaan eh legal tulad ng “re-alignment” kuno of funds pork barrel..

      • mabyrik

        Really, stinking morality has no basis? wow, it’s like saying that GMA was the best president we ever had and marcos loved the filipino so much he gave up his life for them. wow, that’s all I can say, there’s no need to rebut your argument for I can lay a thousand pages with ease in contradicting you but it would be useless for your mind is sealed. That’s all and thank you.

    Sometimes, even if a person seem sincere and act in full humility, people still tend to be skeptical and think negatively. That’s because most are jaded after so many years of hearing lies from someone close to this person. Ms. Reyes was already pronounced guilty by mere association. I also tends to pass this kind of judgement. Not only because she was Enrile’s right-hand (wo)man, but also because she seems to be his co-conspirator, both in the senate hall and in bed!

WE ordinary citizens will not rest untill JPE resigned and all the P 250,000 each which he has doled out to his fellow crocodiles are returned to the national treasury where these rightfully belonged as public funds. Whilst it is accepted that MOOE may be re aligned to give prioritiy to other expenses, yet there is nothing under the “GAA” which authorized anyone to disburse public funds as “Gifts” .  Gift is a giveaway, and is not an operating expense, hence can not be paid or covered by the “MOOE”, allowance or allocation.

    Ahh, so, Alan Cayetano is right. Ms Reyes is the sub of Pnoy as 24th senator. By implicit ‘sawsaw sa usapan’, she basically admitted being the woman behind JPE. However, her exit is quite respectable. She has accepted her mistake and has paid for it.  For all we know, she could have been a good 24th senator. Based on this report, she has bowed out with honors. She is even right to say that ‘we were not deluded by the vote of confidence’. If there are miracles, I hope she would embody one by publicly announcing she will help out in the proposed audit and give us her insight about the financial mongering within the senate.

    “The people now believe that the Senate stinks,” Enrile’s chief of staff, Jessica “Gigi” Reyes said in a statement.”

    The Senate has all along been stinking, Ms. Reyes–not only “now”– and some of its undesirable, obnoxious odors have wafted into open air during the last few days. 
    Kumbaga ang naipong gas mula sa etsas sa bituka ( bowels of the Senate) ay lumabas na in the form of noxious and smelly UTOT, which was inevitable, of course. 
    Dahil if what comes up must come down, it also follows that what comes in must also come out. And now some of the Senate’s stink is coming out. It does good for the taong bayan if only by explicitly expressing their indignance and rage over the stench of this certain government office and some of its denizens.

    Enrile is crazy about her and that’s pretty obvious with the way he gives her too much power and clout. She may be the beginning of the end of Enrile; as they say, behind every man’s success and/or fall is a woman. But then again, it’s really about time the old gizzard rested his gizzard. Tama na at sobra na ang corruption at suffering na inabot ng bansa sa Enrile na yan.

    Two words for Ms. Reyes: LIFESTYLE CHECK!

    Someone please tip BIR to run a lifestyle check on this woman.

  • patawad

    Read between the lines and i think Gigi knows that somebody or some people in the senate are hiding something from the public that really stinks, like a gutter, an anomally, irregularity and or illegal activities there, and that the public should know and find it.  An audit is in order. 

    Now, it is not only senators Cayetano, Lacson and Mirriam clamoring for the full audit, the public is now asking for the same.  Come on people, use all forms of media to flood them with this requirement.

    This is really quite an innovation of the honor system only the sleek and the manipulators in the political world in the Philippines could do. What I mean is that only in the Philippines was a government official such as the Senate President, being questioned of financial shenanigans put his resignation to a vote from among his fellow senators. I believe that as an elected official his resignation should be tendered to the Filipino citizens who elected him to his positions and not to his fellow senators. And to think that they consider themselves honorable, what arrogant mockery and ridicule of my countrymen?

    At least she has the class to apologize to Cayetano et al. Unlike her boss who had the gall to disclose the older Cayetano’s debt which I thought was tacky and so tabloid-like. It amazes me how Enrile allowed his emotions get the best of him considering the number of years he’s been in politics. Like Don Corleone said ” it’s business not personal”.
    Obviuosly, at his age he easily gets cranky or impatient and perhaps has no more heart for heated battles in the chamber. I hope I’m wrong about his but if not, then I think it’s really time for his curtain call in politcs. He doesn’t have much time left and I know he knows it, too. Why the need for aggravation and stress? He ought to stop making a fool of himself now and start thinking of enhacing the legacy he’s going to leave behind.

    • mavtan

      What class? Class C? She only apologize because she was berated by the public. Classy people has common sense.

      • Touch_Me_, Nuts!

        Nope. Still no medals even for those senators you mentioned. For as long as sports and business in PH are played not the sportsman’s way. In business, there’s no level playing field with government and PH business partners and its laws work hand in hand to swindle foreign businessmen. How can you attract foreign business that way?  Cayetano and the whole Senate are no different. This country reeks with sewer odor all the way to the Palace by the stinking river.  I should laugh but I can’t.
         
        In this country, people would even trample on the weak and infirm as a way of life.  People won’t even offer a seat on the bus to the weak and old. In my travels around the country, I see it happen all the time; it’s dogs eat dogs out there.  It’s such a very unhappy place, and the people make it worse day by day.  It’s very difficult for a Filipino to love his fellow Filipino because most Filipinos don’t even treat their children and family well.  A nation who doesn’t treat the home well will not endure. Go figure, why we’re such in a swampy and muddy place! We get it for what we are, proud Filipino!

No one can trust a Filipino; even your own stinking president cannot be. hehehe
     
    Make no mistake about it. This country still has a very long way to go before respect from the world community can be had of a Filipino.

Unfortunately upon getting to his third speech the first’s been forgotten already. hehehe That’s where the stinks in leadership come from, Ms. Gigi.

    “Kulang pa ‘yan, tito,” if I remember correctly, this was the same Alan Peter Cayetano who was quoted as saying by the first gentleman then.  And, now, this elected Senator of the Land, has the same problem with funds.  The late and respected older Cayetano must be turning in his grave.  If he was properly compensated for his services then, I don’t see how a claim that Senator Enrile owes the Cayetano family a debt of gratitude can be credible.  A firm is supposed to grow and make a profit and the employees or partners are supposed to do that; they owe it to themselves.  A debt is something unrepaid and gratitude is the free, “gratis” recognition of no longer being obliged to pay such a debt. If a debt remains uncollected because of mercy or tolerance, the debtor is the one who owes “a debt of gratitude.”

      But her own sentiments (as reported in this and other news reports) – her disappointments, etc.- say otherwise.

    this is another ‘very very sad state’ of the Philippine politics, I will not talk about pork barrel, gifts, MOOE crap but the competencies and mindset of the politicians who run for public offices, had won and continuously insult the public. Power, greed, self-serving ideology! when can someone tell oneself enough is enough?! how long do they need to stay in power to make a difference? The Philippine elected officials (although not all) doesn’t really know the sentiments of the poor people, disserving public trust, empty promises only to find out we’re being robbed again on broad daylight! yet, we keep on electing them (we never learn) there’s something wrong with us as well (too much escape watching telenovelas, pleaaase!), The change should come from (within) the voting people. We should learn that politics is all about issues that matter most to majority (poor, helpless people) Its time to innovate, have more decency and enforced transparency, accountability in public offices. We can never escape this pitfall trap if we elected officials considered all shallow schmacks. I missed those days when I watched the news hearing intelligent speeches and arguments of members of the upper house (now they cant even prepare a decent speech without being sappy). If these politicians are really capable of leading the country 6 years terms is sufficient. Its appalling to hear that our public officials are not doing what they ought to do and ‘delegating’ it to their most trusted staff, I cannot compare public vs. private office but management executives should know how to draw the line, delegating and incompetence is different. Once elected these politicians (manager’s) should learn protocols and should start doing their homework! The world is changing, change is inevitable, let the younger generations lead. There’s so much flaws in our system, no amount of policy change can help and to bridge that gap now is so huge work (miracle is needed), quality of education is waning, private sectors avoiding social responsibility, companies were tax dodging, what more? We need genuine leaders! Those hard work the Chief Executive accomplished will go down the drain if people failed to follow suit, we should be smarter, learn from past mistakes and be vigilant (always), let us all make our public officials accountable, ask them their platform if they failed to deliver — make them pay thru our ballots and toss them aside! remember that they should serve us its not the other way around, we pay taxes, OFW’s send billions of dollars to help your economy and we people deserve the respect, value of our hard earned tax money to pay their salary, they shouldn’t enriched themselves while we live in poverty.

    Time to look for source of Senate stink?
    I do have some question’s to throw back at you.
    How much did you spend for your b-day at the Edsa Shang? What was the President doing in your b-day? Who were some of the notable guests?

    If you look at this carefully it only points to one person.

  • parengtony

    This article is no more than a positive spin or a follow through to the pronouncements of Gigi Reyes. The purpose of the writer is obvious – to use this “news article” to reinforce the propaganda line of Reyes. Example: “…contrary to the allegations, all expenses charged to that account are covered by supporting documents and vouchers available for everyone in the Senate to see.”. The writer clearly supports this defense argument of Reyes but which is completely contradictory to the observation of UP Economics Prof Winnie Monsod as stated in her INQ column today. Hay Naku.

    When you have a plagiarist, acknowledge womanizers, fugitives, then your organization most likely stinks. Now add all the corrupt practices, waste, fraud, and abuse and you have a Senate that is guaranteed “stinky.” The problem is none has had the courage to challenge these Senators, and it had to be a Senator “fighting” another that led to these events. If something good happens as a result is yet to be seen. Ms. Reyes is part of the problem and hers are just empty threats.

    It is very very clear that government is living in this kind of environment. History on corruption started since the earlier times before or after the second world war and became worst during the time of marcos. Today the barometer has gone up, it’s almost on high level where people in the government have nothing to do but to steal, steal and steal. No exception. So my dear countrymen, we know already the problem,  let’s draw a permanent solution, otherwise there will be no more good future for a new generation. For every system, there are procedures, regulations, and laws to be followed but people prefers to defy  and operate the whole system as if they owe it. Look at what happening to our senate, congress and military organization. Wow…

If I am right, therefore, request for payment emanate from the office of the senators but preparation and issuance of same is the sole duty of senate administrative office. Am I right?

    “It is sad but I so agree. It is time to look for where the stink is actually coming from.”  So you’ve admitted that there is stink.  It’s coming from every senator and every senate office.  Ok pala dyan.  Malaki ang bonus.  Pinaghati-hatian niyo ang pera ng bayan.  Kunwari para sa office expenses.

    “I profusely apologize to the honorable senator and minority floor leader, Alan Peter Cayetano, for my disrespectful and offensive statements and overbearing tenor…” 
    Guess what, your statements are still disrespectful and offensive and your tenor overbearing.  Nagmamagaling ka pa rin.  Mas magaling ka sa mga senador, lahat sila mali at nagmamalinis pwera lang ikaw.  This makes us wonder if you never received any bonus from the senate savings too.  Thanks, Madam 24th Senator.

    Ms. Gigi Reyes, can you name even a single senator who is truly clean in the course of their political career? I bet everyone will claim I’m  clean but if that is the case why is the  Philippines  one of the poorest in the world. Millions of people are suffering from hunger and lack of government support. Because billions are pocketed in secret by this greedy  corrupt officials. As long as they have a plan in place to cover these up they can easily deny it and get away with it.   There will be true transformation and progress in our country only when these officials have their hearts transformed by allowing the truth and reality of God in their lives..

    Here’s one simple test if he’s truly for transparency or is just on another publicity stunt. Let’s ask Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano to open the FINANCIAL RECORDS of his office, NOW, for auditors from the private sector. Even though it’s Enrile, and not him who’s in the proverbial ‘eye of the storm.’. Cayetano receives his share of Senate funds. The funds come from our taxes. Therefore, we have the right to know if he has been spending the money WISELY and LEGALLY. We should find out, and see proof, if Cayetano has been spending his Senate allocations for the greater good and not just for himself. If Cayetano refuses to kick off his purported quest for transparency with Senate monies, then everything he says is just for media mileage.

    Atty. Jessica Reyes: you should put yourself where your shoes belong, under a shoe rack, and not on the pedestal. Being CoS of a high-profile politician you are vulnerable or exposed in a work environment which are always riddled with public scrutiny. Lesson learnt, however, it’s too late to rectify the consequences.

    “According to Reyes, she tried to convince the Senate President to resign irrevocably, mainly over her disappointment that very few senators in the majority stood up with him to justify the regularity of the P1.6 million in additional MOOE he released to all but four senators last December. ”

    She holds (and titillates) JPE’s balls in her hands, indeed! A Chief of Staff who can influence her boss to resign irrevocably truly implies who’s the REAL Boss.

Para matapos na lang ang lahat ay ipa-audit na ang lahat hindi lang ang Senate President kung hindi lahat ng mga senators..masyado nang sira ang pangalan ng senado ngayon..And sana instead of palalain ang situation at gawing big deal ang lahat mag trabaho na lang sana ang mga senators at totoong tumulong sa mga mahihirap!!!

    I think Cayetano will also submit his office for audit. Calling for audit yet refusing to be audited will be his downfall. Any thinking person will know that. Meanwhile back to Enrile, who’s in the ‘proverbial eye of the storm’. Will he let Senate audited? Or will he insist on the ‘only if the majority allows’ stance. And yes, it will give him at least a hint of maturity not to divert issues by throwing decade-long ‘I owe you’ note. So juvenile. Nagiging hobby nya na yata yan. Remember the Trillanes-Enrile episodes? Trillanes raises an issue over CamSur division, Enrile replied by exposing Trillanes’ part in WPS backdoor negotiation. Namamana na din ni Lacson ganyang mga tactica.

    Gigi answered her own question.

    Gigi said “the people now believe that the senate stinks” and “It is sad but I so agree.”  She is implying that the stinks come from the senate president”s office since she was deeply involved in its affairs when johnny assumed the senate presidency in  November 2008.

    It is now clear that whoever holds and disburses billions of pesos in his discretion, whether whimsical or sensible, could not be expected to stay clean and firm forever.  This assessment holds true in the lower house of belmonte.

    Gigi has now the chance to help the senate restore its once-respectable image by exposing what she knew as questionable transactions/procedures and to help craft remedial measures.

    this, my darling I’ve been told.
    I don’t care just what they say, 
    cause forever THEY will pay.
    You and I will be as RICH,
    like all thieves in the Senate,
    Oh please, Steal with me, my Jo$$hny.”♫♪

    According to Reyes, Enrile could very well have explained how the Senate spends its P600 million in funds for maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE). Show to the senators & the public that there are real supporting documents and vouchers available for everyone in the Senate to see. Talking is good but we want actual proof .

    The people now are trying to compare the Chief Senator Judge and the convicted Chief Justice.

    Sige nga Aling Gigi pagsabihan mo ang mga senador na linisin ang kanilang hanay, pero palagay ko dapat umpisahan nila sa’yo… Okey ka lang Aling Gigi? Palagay mo ba malinis ka rin at malinis din ang pagtatrabaho mo sa senate president? Teka, matanong ko rin, ikaw ba ang pumirma sa sarili mong Christmas bonus. Kainggit ka naman mahal na mahal ka ng ating senate president… Hanga naman ako sa’yo. Isipin mong nagawa mong pagsabihan ang senate president na mag-resign. Close kayo talaga ni Lolong Johnny…

    Madam Senator Gigi, stink starts from the office that you share with the most honorable Senator Enrile. Sinong niloloko niyo?

  • batangsulpok

    Kinopya siguro ni Enrile si Clinton na habang nakaupo  at nagtatrabaho, si Monica Lewinsky naman ay nasa ilalim ng mesa at may nililinis.

    • romfagen

      si Gigi(l) ang na regular change oil kay JPE, para maganda raw ang performance sa senado at mag last long pa

  • marivon

    She finally admitted she stinks. She was not interviewed; she called the radio station. At least nabawasan ng isang buwaya sa senado, may 20 plus pa na dapat lumayas na rin.Abolish na lang kaya pati house of representathieves, puro kurakot lang naman mga honorables na ito.

  • mangtom

    Gigi(l), look no further. Take a peek and sniff between your legs. O kaya, ipaamoy mo kay lover boy, Juan.

    Jessica Lucila “Gigi” Gonzales-Reyes

    Tingin sa iyo’y isang putik, larawan mo’y nilalait
    Gigi Reyes ikaw ay ‘di maintindihan
    Ika’y isang mayaman pero kulang ang pagisip
    nag-aral ka, kasi marami kayong  pera

    REFRAIN
    Kaya ika’y namasukan, doon sa senado napadpad
    Mula noon, binansagang kalapating mababa ang lipad

    Hindi mo man ito nais, ika’y walang magagawa
    ‘Pagkat kailangan mong mabuhay sa mundo
    Tinitiis mo ang lahat, kay hirap ng kalagayan
    Ang pag-big mo kay Enrileng amoy lupa

    [Repeat REFRAIN]

    CHORUS
    Gigi Reyes, ikaw ay sawimpalad
    Kailan ka nila maiintindihan
    Gigi Reyes, ikaw ay sawimpalad
    Kailan ka nila maiintindihan
    Gigi Reyes,Gigi Reyes

    Ibig mo nang magbago at mamuhay na nang tahimik
    Ngunit ang mundo’y sadyang napakalupit
    Hanggang kailan maghihintay, hanggang kailan magtitiis
    Ang dalangin mo, kailan maririnig

    [Repeat CHORUS]

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/36O4ZGE5JY24XE4XQOXBM6O4WE Klepto

    Miss Reyes tanong ko lang sana: Sa edad ni Enrile, tumitigas pa ba ang kanyang uten?

    • dipax

      sana naman sincere sya sa sinabi nya…….

  • JuanTamadachi

    quote
    “I profusely apologize to the honorable senator and minority floor leader, Alan Peter Cayetano, for my disrespectful and offensive statements and overbearing tenor as I was interviewed on dzMM Teleradyo last Monday, Jan. 21, 2013,” Reyes said.
    unquote

      Hinde po impeachable officials ang mga member ng legislature..pwede  si Enrile kasuhan sa Ombudsman para sa criminal complaint..
      O kaya sa Ethics committee ng Senado para sa administrative case…

  • senatongresman

    Ang problema sa mga pulitico natin ayaw umalis sa pwesto; kasi ang laki ng kita sa kanilang pork barrel; na hindi naliliquidate ng detalyado kaya ayon yumayaman silang lahat. sino sa tingin ninyo ang hindi magnanakaw sa senatong at tongresman natin? Kaya dapat may batas na detailed liquidation up to the last centavo ng funds na pinagkatiwala sa kanila; kita mo ayaw na patawag ng pangalan nila kailangan HONORABLE SENATONG O HONORABLE TONGRESMAN Hindi na sila nahiya sa sarili nila; Honorable “KUNO”. Sa laki ng Pork barrel na budget may nangyari ba na mga infrastructure sa Pinas? Tignan nyo ang Vietnam dapang dapa ng nakaraang dekada ngayon umaasenso; nalalagpasan pa ang Pinas; Dapat cguro magkaroon ng revolution at patayin lahat ng magnanakaw na politico at magsimula tayo para umasenso ang ating Bansa. PURO DRAMA NA LANG AND MGA SENATONG NATIN  AT KANYA KANYANG PAPOGI SA MADLANG PEOPLE KASI ELECTION TIME NA NAMAN; MATAGAL NG BINOBOLA TAYO NG MGA KAWATAN PERO DI PA RIN TAYO NAGIGISING
