The issue of commission on Elections Chairman, Andres 'Andy' Bautista regarding his alleged ill-gotten wealth which was revealed by his wife has drawn different emotions from different officials.


Senator Grace Poe, in an ambush interview  said she wants a lifestyle check among officials of the COMELEC, August 7.

Television show, News5 asked Poe regarding her reaction and she answered that Bautista needs to prove that those money doesn't belong to him.

"Naniniwala ako hands down na panalo si Pres. Duterte pero yung mga dikit ang laban, doon posibleng may implikasyon. Kung mga passbook yan na iisa lang ang pangalan, ano pang kailangan ninyong ebidensya? Patunayan mo (Comelec chair) na hindi sayo yan mga perang iyan.

The lady senator added if he will not be able to prove it, he will lose.

"Hindi lang ito basta away mag-asawa, meron itong implikasyoin sa paninilbihan ng gobyerno," she added.

On the other hand, Poe also stressed she is supporting Sen. Tito Sotto and Gordon for proposing an investigation for this matter the soonest possible time.

"Kung ako opisyal ng barangay, gusto ko naman masiguro na mapagkakatiwalaan ang nasa Comelec. Emergency powers mukhang magiging priority ito sa senate at congress, pero paki-validate din sa iba," she concluded.
