POLITIKO - The bible of Philippine Politics

There seems to be a rift between Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III and former Biliran Rep. Glenn Chong over the issue of alleged cheating in the 2016 elections.

A Politiko source said Sotto recently lost his cool at Chong when they were together inside a room.

Sotto reportedly berated Chong for using him for his propaganda to the hilt.

“You used me!” he howled at the former congressman, prompting Chong to leave the room.

A Politiko source said Sotto’s outburst was triggered by Chong’s use of the Senate President’s speeches on the alleged fraud in the 2016 elections.

Excerpts of Sotto’s speeches were included in Chong’s 36-minute Facebook video accusing the Commission on Elections of robbing him of victory in the 2010 and 2013 congressional race in Biliran.

Chong also reportedly likes to drop Sotto’s name in discussions regarding the alleged cheating in the elections.

The former lawmaker’s grudge against the Comelec runs deep, as he has also tagged the poll body in the recent death of his trusted aide, Richard Santillan.

Chong said he was the real target of the police operation that killed Santillan and that his aide was merely a casualty of opportunity.

The Philippine National Police, however, has maintained that Santillan was involved in illegal drugs and tried to resist arrest when cops questioned him.
