Controversial Assistant Communications Secretary Mocha Uson is set to appear at a Senate budget hearing this Wednesday.

Senator JV Ejercito said Uson confirmed her attendance in the hearing of the Senate committee on finance on the proposed budget of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) for 2019.


The hearing is slated to start at 9 a.m.

Uson’s absence in the ongoing plenary deliberations of the House of Representatives has stalled the approval of the PCOO’s budget.

Uson and blogger-friend, Drew Olivar, have become controversial because of their video with the latter dancing and singing a lewd “pepederalismo” jingle.

The duo again drew the ire of critics after another video showed them mocking the sign language.
