PROOF VS DE LIMA?

Sex video fake, say viewers

/ 01:38 AM September 30, 2016

A Filipino-American woman residing in the United States has sent the Philippine Daily Inquirer a copy of a video showing a couple engaged in the sex act—and asked the question: “Is Sen. Leila de Lima the female in the video?”

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II has threatened that he will show a purported sex video involving the beleaguered senator at the next House committee inquiry into her alleged connection to drug lords when she was the justice secretary.

The Inquirer sought people to watch the video sent by the Filipino-American and asked their comments and opinions.

The video, which runs for one minute and 54 seconds, shows a woman whose slight facial resemblance to De Lima is highlighted by her wearing eyeglasses while having sexual intercourse with a man with dark features that almost look like he’s black.

A dog makes its presence felt by walking away from the scene near the video’s end.

The curious thing is that the woman keeps looking at the camera all throughout—as if trying to make sure her face is seen by viewers.

Ironically, the people behind the making of the video intentionally blurred the woman’s face, making it virtually impossible to distinguish her identity.

“It’s blurred. You can’t see the face. Although she has a similar build, and I saw still photos in an online post showing the face of the woman, no doubt this is younger than De Lima. Only those with poor eyesight or dirty minds will say this is Leila. This video is fake,” a businessman said.

“My God, how fake. The woman doesn’t look like De Lima. And I doubt if the guy is (Ronnie) Dayan [De Lima’s alleged ex-boyfriend]. And the one who edited this video put a watermark of its supposed original site just when the woman turned her face to the camera,” a musician pointed out.

“Photoshopped or not, it can be someone else. There are lots of porn sites that feature people who look like other people. I even saw one who resembled Hillary Clinton,” explained a photographer.

“Undistinguishable. The woman was even made to wear glasses to make her look like De Lima,” said a businesswoman.

‘Hocus-pocus’

“It’s a big hoax … Hocus-pocus involved,” a theater lighting engineer noted.

“I really can’t say it’s her, even if she kept on looking at the camera. I think it’s staged,” said a club DJ.

“Is that it? Gosh, the extent of what people do … This is the worst kind of fakery,” another musician said.

“Anybody who watches it will say it’s fake!” exclaimed a housewife.

“It’s crazy. This is mudslinging at its lowest,” a female journalist declared.

What truly makes the whole exercise dubious is that the video is splattered with the watermark title, “Senator Leila de Lima Scandal Pak Ganern,” with the video’s website source pasted at the center.

As it turned out, the video’s source is a porn site.
