Vice president Jejomar Binay owns up to his transgression.
Candidate for vice president admits to having an affair
While campaigning for the May 2010 elections, stories about Binay's past affair came out. Photos of him with an unnamed woman circulated. In a GMANews.TV report by Andreo C. Calonzo, Binay said: "Nangyari po iyon. Hindi ko po itinatanggi. Pero humingi na ho ako ng patawad sa aking asawa (It happened. I am not denying it, but I already asked for forgiveness from my wife)." What shocking about this? The man actually owned up to it!
Is Patrick dela Rosa's story different from the tale of the tape?
Actor-turned-politician accused of rape
According to an Inquirer.net report, former 80s "bold star," Patrick dela Rosa, 45, who is now a member of the Oriental Mindoro Provincial Board, was arrested on October 8 for supposedly raping "Roxanne" (not her real name), a 20-year-old college student. CCTV footage from the Regalia Tower in Cubao, Quezon City made the rounds. It showed Roxanne and another woman confronting Dela Rosa in the driveway of the condominium after the alleged rape took place. In an ABS-CBNNews.com report, Roxanne claimed to have rejected a P2.5-million offer from Dela Rosa. She also denied asking for P5 million from Dela Rosa. Meanwhile, in a TV Patrol World report, three witneses who had previously supported Roxanne's claims have recanted. Dela Rosa is, as expected, denying that he raped Roxanne. The case is still under investigation.
