MANILA, Philippines – Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon on Wednesday dared disqualified Duterte Youth party-list nominee Ronald Cardema to identify the ‘bagwoman’ in the alleged extortion attempt  – or just shut up.

“C should name that Congresswoman or SHUT UP,” Guanzon said in a Twitter post with a photo of a toilet bowl.


Cardema recently accused Guanzon of trying to extort P2 million in exchange for the Comelec accreditation of the party-list group.

Cardema said that he received text messages from a certain congresswoman who served as Guanzon’s emissary.

Guanzon has already denied that accusations of Cardema, who she described as a  liar and name dropper.

She pointed out that is pointless to extort money from a “poor” Cardema.

The word war between Guanzon and Cardema was touched off after the election official bared that she has received death threats immediately after the Comelec blocked Cardema’s nomination.


Cardema denied that his camp was behind the threats and said that Guanzon was only “playing victim.” /gsg
