Sharon Cuneta vows to give ₱10 million and leave husband Sen. Francis Pangilinan if he’s among those involved in the pork barrel scam
"We’re not thieves," says the Megastar.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that Sharon Cuneta has offered a ₱10 million reward and promised to leave her husband, former Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan if anyone can prove that he is involved in the pork barrel scam.
The report explained that Cuneta made the offer on Twitter on Wednesday, September 25 following Senator Jinggoy Estrada's claim in a privilege speech that Pangilinan was among the lawmakers who "committed irregularities" in spending their pork barrel or Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF). "If anyone reading this can prove to me that my husband has stolen any amount from his PDAF in his 12 years as senator, I will give you ₱10 million in cash and I will leave my husband. That is how confident I am," she tweeted.
Following this, Cuneta posted another tweet saying, "Hindi kami magnanakaw. Hindi kami tulad ng iba na kaya ipakain sa mga anak namin ang perang di amin o di namin pinaghirapan (We are not thieves. We’re not like those people who can feed their kids with food bought from money that they didn’t work hard to earn)." As of 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Cuneta's dare has registered 268 retweets.
