He is trending like Beiber, hot like Rhianna, and known to be a Mangongopya. Senator Tito Sotto is no doubt an International Celebrity today because he copied... again another article, this time from late US Senator Robert Kennedy and his daughter Kerry was not happy about it.
Senate Defends Sotto
Mr Sotto has found an ally of Juan Ponce Enrile, he said "We cannot be questioned for what we say inside this Chamber anywhere, not because we are a special breed but because that is the immunity given by the sovereign people so that we can speak on any subject under the sun".
Article 6, Section 11 of the Constitution, which reads in part: "No member shall be questioned nor be held liable in any other place for any speech or debate in Congress or in any committee thereof." Who wrote this law!? this should be amended.
This constitution was created to protect the people not the lawmaker. It is clear that they are untouchables and cannot be questioned. He acknowledge that it is the Sovereign people who gave them the Power. BUT when the Sovereign People Questioned their Actions, they will ARROGANTLY replied that they are Senators of the Republic elected by the People....
what have we done!? who voted these clowns.
Sorry seems to be the hardest word
If only Tito Sotto have apologized to those bloggers and to the Kennedy family none of this would happen. What they want is simple, apologize and give credit to the author, very simple! but unfortunately he did not, and will not say sorry to those he plagiarized.
Jim Paredes member of the classic group APO expressed his opinion on the senator "Pinag tatawanan siya kasi pinaninindigan niya ang mali". He also said the Senator should simply apologize just like Fareed Zakaria of CNN, he admitted he plagiarized, say sorry, got suspended for one month and its all over, people wont even remember.
If it's hard to apologize, then it will be harder for us to vote you on election day
This plagiarism issue will doom Mr. Sotto's political career and probably will spark a campaign on not voting celebrities and actors as politicians, mainly because they don't know what they are doing. Those who sided with Mr. Sotto (ex. Enrile) will be unpopular to the voting population.
I will not vote someone who can't even say "sorry" or "apologize". A simple but meaningful word that he should used a long time ago.
He doesn't know what he is doing
I just don't know if Mr. Sotto REALLY knows what he is doing. He supports the Anti Cyber Crime law, but he, himself is a violator of that said law. Another thing I noticed in him, is he DOESN'T listen. On a debate about the RH bill he said that it is pro abortion, but it is clear on that law that it is NOT abortion, but still he believes it is abortion where in fact the bill is not about abortion, duhhh!
The saying "you can't teach old dogs news tricks" applies to these arrogant Senators.
