Two-termer Cavite 2nd District Congresswoman and actress, Lani Mercado-Revilla is being attacked for her bold and heartless statements when asked of her reactions about scrapping the controversial pork barrel of Senators and Congressmen.
"Basta huwag lang manghihingi sa amin ang mga tao!"
“Hindi naman puwede yung sa pinaghihirapan namin dahil sa personal naman namin yun, sa mga anak, sa mga pang-araw-araw na panggastos namin."
Needless to say, those words that speak volumes were directed at her constituents and supporters who voted for her.
The Napoles controversy has been a daily series of exposes that have both drowned and drawn violent reactions from the angry public amid accusations at politicians and other public figures being linked to the biggest scandal to ever hit the country this year.
Where is Congresswoman Lani Revilla's strong statement coming from?
Reportedly, the scandal linking her family has taken its toll on its members who are mostly in current government positions: Husband Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr, son Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla and herself. Another son, Bryan Revilla is also linked as business partner of Napoles son.
