OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON CONVICTED PLUNDERER JANET NAPOLES’ CLAIM
With all the attacks hurled against Sen. Richard Gordon, the Napoles claim is just another desperate attempt using a polluted source meant to distract the Senate investigation from exposing corrupt individuals involved in the anomalous transactions this administration has entered with its favored suppliers.
While we do not need to dignify Napoles’ wild claim, let it be known that Senator Gordon has never received any donation from her nor has he ever had any financial dealings with her. There have never been any reports that he was involved in the PDAF scam she masterminded, otherwise cases would have been filed against him years ago.
Napoles lived in the same condominium building as Sen. Gordon, and it is easy for anyone to secure a fellow resident’s unit number. People do so all the time to bring or send letters, fruits, and food.
To set the record straight, all campaign contributions and expenses related to the past election campaigns as well as the use of development assistance funds of Sen. Gordon and his office are above board and of public record.
If the price Senator Gordon has to pay for discharging his sworn duty to the Filipino who elected him is all these rehashed issues and maliciously concocted stories, we have no doubt he is ready to face his critics and detractors head on.
