Jojo Binay’s Camp Laughs Off Letter Filed By Mocha Uson To COMELEC
JOJO BINAY – The camp of senatorial candidate Jejomar “Jojo” C. Binay said Mocha Uson’s petition to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is ‘laughable and pathetic.’
On Wednesday, former OWWA Deputy Administrator Mocha Uson asked the COMELEC to check the health status of ex-VP Binay who is running for senator in the May 9 polls under the United Nationalist Alliance.
In a two-page document, the 39-year-old political blogger asked the COMELEC to look into the mental capability of the senatorial aspirant who was said to be suffering from dementia or memory disorder. She asserted that she has nothing against him but she has the right as a voter to make it public especially since he has a great chance of winning this election.
Mocha Uson said someone informed her that Jojo Binay’s health condition is not good and this can be proven by that he rarely joins campaign rallies in the past 2 months. She said the poll body shoul4d not go blind on this.
“For those who have been following the former Vice President’s career, his silence is completely uncharacteristic. And given the reports on his supposedly failing health, quite alarming. Mr. Binay has been among the most vocal critics of our beloved President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, yet during this period where his voice needs to be heard the most – he has stayed in the shadows,” Mocha said.
Jojo Binay’s camp immediately released a statement dispelling rumors of failing health after Mocha Uson filed a petition at the COMELEC. Binay’s spokesperson Joey Salgado described Mocha’s petition as “laughable, pathetic, and desperate.” He said the blogger may check Binay’s activities on his official Facebook page.
“This so-called petition is laughable, pathetic, and desperate. Nakakalungkot lang na merong mga gustong siraan ang pangalan ni VP Binay, na malinaw ang track record ng paglilingkod sa ating mga kababayan, dahil pasok siya sa Magic 12 sa senatorial race at sinusuportahan siya ng Iglesia Ni Cristo, kilalang political leaders, at local officials, at ng marami nating kababayan,” Salgado said.
