Sen. Panfilo Lacson hasn’t finished lashing out at Sen. Richard Gordon.

On Tuesday, Lacson posted a cryptic message on Twitter which reads: “With a lot of help from a doctor-friend, I say this – Somebody who has a mouth like an incontinent anus with a defective sphincter pylori can indiscriminately destroy reputations.”


Asked in a text message who he was referring to in his post, he said: “I could only give a clue: Doctors are mad.”

Pressed further, Lacson again unleashed his ire at Gordon for citing his friendship with former President Benigno Aquino III as the reason for his opposing a draft report recommending that charges be filed against the former leader over the botched P3.5-billion Dengvaxia vaccination project.

It was Gordon, as chairman of the Senate blue ribbon committee, who released the draft report against Aquino and other former government officials.

Contrary to Gordon’s insinuation, Lacson said Aquino did not help him in the charges filed against him in connection with his alleged role in the 2000 killing of  publicist Bubby Dacer and his driver Emmanuel Corbito.

“In the first place, PNoy [Aquino] did not help me in the Dacer case. Truth did,” Lacson said.

In fact, even after the Court of Appeals had decided that there was no probable case against him, Lacson said, Aquino’s then Justice Secretary Leila de Lima refused to respect the CA decision and insisted that I had not been cleared until after the Supreme Court would decide on her appeal.”


“I resurfaced in 2011, not 2010 as Gordon wrongly thought, which only shows that I suffered longer under PNoy’s term than the previous administration,” Lacson said.

“Is that is the kind of help that I got from PNoy? Gordon better check his facts before moving his sphincter muscles,” he added. /atm
