    Resigning 3-4 years late for the senate seat you didn’t deserve won’t help you get elected anymore, unless, people hear you squeal on Gloria & Mike’s cheating ways in Mindanao. 
    You do that & I might just be convinced to vote or even campaign for you.

      In an exam it doesnt matter if you got all the answers right. If you cheated you fail. If it was a bar or board exam, you are forever disqualified.

      Kahit ilang libong batas pa ang ginawa nya, balewala lahat yan dahil sya mismo ay hindi marunong sumunod sa batas!

    This is the guys who just said last year he cheated to win the 2007 elections?

    Is there anything left to believe him?

    This is Migz Zubiri, the man who benefited from the massive cheating during GMA days. He fought electoral protest and successfully delayed for three years efforts of Koko Pimental to have votes recounted. At the last minute when it was inevitable that COMELEC is about to find out and broadcast the truth that he actually lost to Pimentel, Zubiri resigned. A senseless and hopeless attempt at saving face. Not only did he cheat from the election by condoning the massive cheating, but he also stole 3 years of Koko Pimentel’s term as Senator. Shame on you Migz. This election is a time of reckoning. Ang katulad mo ay kahihiyan sa Senado.

    Zubiri? Naku, andaming kandidato dyan, isusugal ba natin na manalo ang isang may virus ni GMA o isang pinagdududahang nandaya sa eleksyon?

  • Filipinoflash

    Zubiri, the cheater. Give one more month. Laglag na yan sa Magic 12.

    This is one of the best reason why China bully us now because of this kind of quality leaders we had. Cheater and no leadership or talent to govern our country.. Most are inutil!

    Our leaders only knew tsismis, about her/himself and themselves but in reality they must use their brain inside and outside our country! Questions like how we can compete to the world while giving opportunities to our people..quality jobs, infrastructure and many more that can attract respect from others..


    Very sad though we still have a lot of Mangmang voters who knows nothing but their neighbors only.

  • PinoyPower1

    Siguradong hindi mananalo ang mandarayang ito!

    No to election cheater!

  • 33Sambuang2

    do not vote for zubiri. mandaraya…………………..

  • 33Sambuang2

    bobo lang boboto sa yo. mandaraya… you clung to the position which is not yours and later when   you felt that you will lose, you resigned… you are a disgrace….

  • nakawan

    Question for Zubiri: if you were confident that you did not cheat, why did you resign? Why didn’t you stand your ground and file a case against Koko?

  • wakats

    Migz has been an ate glo die-hard with mitos, and tried unsuccessfully to make a grandiose and sacrificial-like exit from the senate as if he didn’t know anything about the cheating.

    Now he is trying to redeem his tainted honor by asking voters to put him back to the senate – courtesy of his ninong erap – who, like him, was forced to step down due to myriads of proven anomalies.

    No Pinoy in his right mind would vote for a cheater like migz….
