His Side of the Story

We sort of bashed him and called him names (i.e., Damomo) but he is certainly entitled to share his side of the story. For those who missed Baguio Rep. Mauricio Domogan’s explanation of his P200,000 allowance a.k.a bribery ak.a. gift a.k.a. suhol, here it is:

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines — Baguio City Representative Mauricio Domogan on Wednesday said all members of the House of Representatives received P200,000 in checks last week as part of their annual representation and transportation allowances.

Domogan, who called a press conference to explain the amount received by some congressmen last week, said all representatives were entitled to these allowances that are routinely issued during congressional breaks.

He said he signed for the amount at the House of Representatives shortly after the conclusion of a meeting in MalacaƱang.

Read the whole thing here. Note that according to him all Representatives were given an “allowance”. So he is not the only Damomo.

One thought on “His Side of the Story”

  1. Domogan is really disappointing nowadays. Had Gov. Panlilio not gone public about the cash from Congress, Malacanang, or whatever, i believe Rep. Domogan would never have admitted accepting such cash.
