Expel a congressman for drug possession? It depends

Ilocos Sur Representative Ronald Singson could lose
his seat in congress if convicted for drug trafficking
charges in Hong Kong.

Pleading guilty to simple possession might make his colleagues
at the House of Representatives more forgiving, though.

“It depends on the gravity of the offense and how congressmen will perceive it (his criminal offense) based on our own laws (governing) elected officials,” said House Deputy Minority Leader Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay, when interviewed on the phone.

Singson is set to plead guilty to possession of cocaine and diazepam later this month. His lawyers will have to prove that the drugs he was caught with were meant for his own use.

Aww. That's not so bad.

His father, Ilocos Sur Governor/Badass Chavit Singson insists it’s all a frame-up.

“Na-pass sa kanya (yung illegal drugs) e, so nakita sa kanya. Na-set up siya. No choice siya, he had to admit (to possession of the drugs),” he said.

(The illegal drugs were passed to him and were found in his possession. He was set up. He had no choice, he had to admit to possession of the drugs.)

Which is either incredibly wise, or, since the elder Singson was once chief of police in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, incredibly scary.

  1. @Dicklip, lookit, Filipinos believe in aswang, sigbin,
    manghuhula, herbolario and Jesus Christ is God. So, what is
    stopping them from explaining frame-up.

  2. @Dicklip: Apparently, someone passed Rep. Singson a bottle of cocaine. Apparently, Rep. Singson didn’t read the memo not to accept things from strangers on airplanes.

  3. Hahahaha. Well, well, well. Chavit is really so stupid for saying more than what is necessary. He’s just out there showing how sly (or bad at it) he is.

  4. If Congressman Singson is guilty in Hong-Kong he is guilty in the Philippines. He should be expelled. How can a lawmaker make law and get away with it. Impunity of Filipino minds.
