Kadiri! Gary Alejano can’t believe vote-buying by aspiring House Speakers

The greed for power is horrifying.

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano is shocked to hear Rep. Bebot Alvarez’s bombshell revelation that aspiring House Speakers are promising up to P1 million per lawmaker just to get their vote in the next Congress.

Alejano said this is a new low for the chamber.

“Hearing this is disgusting! Naging pera pera na lang talaga ang politika sa bansa,” the former senatorial bet said.

“In my two terms as member of Congress, I am proud to say that I voted for the speakership out of principle and not out of money,” Alejano clarified.

If this is true, then this is nothing different from recent vote-buying cases ahead of the May 13 polls.
