On Monday, Comelec chair Andres Bautista's wife, Patricia, exposed the unexplained wealth of her husband. In a video uploaded by Inquirer on their YouTube channel, Patricia said she submitted last week, August 1st, to the National Bureau of Investigation an affidavit, saying that the Comelec chief might have amassed nearly P1 billion worth of ill-gotten wealth.
In a Facebook post, Prosecutor Darwin Cañete, known supporter of President Duterte, shared the 10 pages affidavit of Bautista's wife. He captioned his post with:
Ten pages of the Bautista affidavit...Enjoy it folks. And dear yellows, please feel free to cry. You know how I enjoy your pain. 😂😂😂READ ALSO: See How Sen. Poe Reacts on Shocking Revelations about COMELEC Chair Here's the affidavit of Patricia. Kindly read.
Comelec chair Bautista already gave his reaction to wife's claims. In a press conference, he denied Patricia's allegations and said it may be politically and financially motivated.
"Hindi po totoo iyang mga paratang na iyan. Matagal na po kaming may problemang mag-asawa na ngayon ay nababahiran na ng pulitika. Kasama ko po ang aking pamilya ng Bautista at pati na po ang kanyang pamilya, ang Cruz family, sa labang ito.
Nakapag-meeting daw siya sa ibang political personality. Siguro sa mga susunod na araw, malalaman at malalaman din po iyan," Bautista said in a radio interview with dzMM.
