MANILA, Philippines— Senator Loren Legarda exposed on Wednesday that there was a “disinformation campaign” against her that said she had filed a bill reducing the benefits of government employees.

“It has come to my knowledge that certain individuals with ill-motives have spread within several government institutions malicious, false, inaccurate and baseless information that I purportedly authored a bill that would reduce the leave credits and retirement benefits of government employees,” Legarda said in a privilege speech.
