Electoral fraud awareness campaigner Glenn Chong forcibly SILENCED during Senate hearing #ElectionFraud2016


Reports are spotty, but it seems former House Representative Glenn Chong who attended a Senate hearing on election fraud was forcibly kept silent during the proceedings. According to various witness accounts, Senator Koko Pimentel who chaired the hearing consistently ignored Chong's attempts to take his turn to speak.

It didn't help either that the Philippines' top mainstream media outlets provided very little coverage of this hearing -- perhaps because of the sensitivities involved in considering the partisan camp everyone knows the media to be really slanted towards. What media preferred to focus the spotlight on instead was the brouhaha surrounding the federalism promotion activities of Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson.

One wonders then why Chong was invited as resource person for this hearing to begin with.

This highlights yet another instance that goes to prove further why the Philippines' Commision on Elections (COMELEC) has never been reformed despite decades of overseeing fraudulent elections. There simply lacks a political will to do just that, and this most recent Senate hearing in the way it was conducted proves this yet again.
