Megastar Offers P10 Million Reward If Husband Is Proven To Have Misused PdafSharon Cuneta is at her feisty mood. But that it is only at Twitter, where she ventilated her angst to what her ‘kumpare’ Senator Jinggoy Estrada said about her husband, former Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan. The Megastar has expressed her confidence that Kiko did not misuse his own pork barrel during his 12 years of Senate term.
In his privilege speech at the Senate last Wednesday, September 25, Jinggoy mentioned names that he said were also guilty of misusing their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), also known more popularly as pork barrel. He named Kiko as one of those former senators.
Jinggoy pointed out that the current government is only investigating those legislators who are not from their party. Kiko is a party-mate of President Noynoy Aquino (Liberal Party). Jinggoy is from the party of his father, former president, convicted plunderer, and current Manila mayor Joseph Estrada.
Only in Twitter
Sharon was quick to react in her Twitter account. She declared that she would only ventilate her resentments on the social media. That was why she asked the showbiz reporters to simply read her lines carefully because she would not talk about the issue in any other time and venue.
The TV5 actress has raised several points against what Jinggoy declared. First of all, she denied that Kiko had something to do with the misuse and stealing of pork barrel. She expressed her confidence by declaring that she would reward anyone who could show proofs that Kiko stole money from government funds.
Sharon pointed out that she has always been among the most popular and most reliable endorsers, TV personalities, and movie actresses around for the longest time. That was why she is earning billions of pesos for her family. Sharon disclosed that she constantly talks about her financial achievements to make it known that her family does not need to steal public money just to buy life’s luxuries.
She also pointed out that if Kiko only stole money from his PDAF, they would have bought a house in Paris or in New York. She was clearly alluding to somebody else in this statement. Is Jinggoy or the Estrada family owning any property in those areas?
Lastly, Sharon asked the public to be more vigilant and to not fall into the traps of politicians who are trying to divert the issue. She dared legislators to show up all documents about their PDAF so that everyone would know once and for all who misused their pork barrel. Sharon sounded hurt about how Jinggoy tried to drag her husband into the scandal he (Jinggoy) is into these days.
Aside from the P10 million reward money, Sharon is also promising to leave her husband once he is proven to have participated in the massive scam. That is how confident she is that her husband has always been righteous. Kiko is currently staying out of the limelight to enjoy his private life after serving for 12 years in the Senate.
