Manny Pacquiao A Dirty Politician? Vote Buying Charges Alleged
by Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz on May 15, 2013

The Manila Times is reporting that Manny Pacquiao, who recently made headlines for scheduling a fight outside the United States in many years, is making even more as a corrupt politician. He’s being alleged to have been buying votes, among other things, as members of his political party have been arrested on a variety of charges.

“The origin of this confrontation, as had been reported in the Manila Times, is that Pacquiao’s group was attempting to distribute rice and money on a door-to-door basis to voters in Belgica’s village, in effect bribing them to go their way, and Belgica was making an attempt to stop them. When he threatened to file charges against Pacquiao for buying votes on behalf of General Santos City mayoral candidate Ronnel Rivera, the melee erupted.” (Boxing Insider)
