QC congressional bet Rose Nono-Lin warns vs dirty tactic
Quezon City congressional candidate and controversial businesswoman Rose Nono-Lin on Saturday accused her rival of being behind the distribution of forms to make it appear that she was buying votes.
Lin’s team learned that forms that bore her rose logo and asked for the recipient’s name, address, and contact number have been distributed to her supporters, who were promised money.
But Lin said this was part of a ploy to make her look bad, and warned the public against falling for this.
“Malinaw na ginagamit lang po kayo ng kabilang kampo para palabasing bumibili tayo ng boto o para paasahin kayo at magalit kayo sa amin,” she said on Facebook.
She also said the activity was a violation of the rules of the Commission on Elections and was part of an effort to derail her campaign.
She vowed not to resort to such dirty tactics herself.
“Marumi man ang kanilang istilo, mananatili tayong tuwid at kikilos nang naaayon sa batas. Sama-sama, tulungan po ninyo kaming tuldukan na ang marumi at bulok na sistema ng pangangampanya sa Distrito Singko,” she said.
Lin, who became controversial after being dragged in the Senate probe of the questionable pandemic transactions of Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corporation, is herself facing vote buying complaints before a Comelec task force.
