Politiko fans have spoken: They don’t want Dick in Senate
An overwhelming majority of Politiko fans aren’t wowed by Senator Richard “Dick” Gordon’s performance– and want him out of the Senate.
Results of Politiko’s online poll showed six out of 10 netizens or 61 percent are in favor of removing Gordon from the Senate because of his rabid defense of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Surprisingly, only 24 percent of respondents are in favor of removing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, who is the subject of an ethics complaint from Gordon, from the chamber.
Nine percent want both Gordon and Trillanes expelled from the Senate, while the remaining six percent wonder why the choices were limited to the two senators.
Gordon filed a 23-page ethics complaint against Trillanes over his alleged “unparliamentary acts, language, and conduct.”
The Senate ethics panel has found Gordon’s complaint sufficient in form and substance, and gave Trillanes 10 days from September 11 to file his reply.
