At least three people PMed me a few days ago expressing concern and alarm at the information leaked by the City Mayor’s Office that he had been cleared by President Digong from the list of narco-mayors.
Indeed, that information, if true, was a cause for worry, because it would have meant that Jed Patrick E. Mabilog had succeeded in performing a Houdini trick in fooling the President.
As it turned out, it was a false alarm. Mabilog was informed there’s a second list of politicians and public officials involved in illegal drugs. His name wasn’t on the list. Mabilog interpreted that as meaning he’s no longer on the President’s list.
Mabilog celebrated too soon. No, it didn’t mean that. His name was already on the first list. The second list didn’t include those on the first list.
It was a case of premature ejaculation, a clear case of false alarm.
But it’s typical of Mabilog to employ tricks of deception. He wants to fool his own constituents into believing that he’s now clean as far as narco-politics is concerned.
Now Mabilog has changed his tune.
He’s saying that what’s more important is that he is now fully engaged in the fight against illegal drugs.
He doesn’t even show remorse for his misbehavior during the last six years and until President Digong was catapulted to the Presidency.
Had Mar Roxas won, do you think Mabilog would have changed?
