Is Bautista afraid leaving would open can of worms?

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon has advised Andy Bautista to at least go on leave while he is agonizing over the decision on whether to fight it out or just resign from his position.
“I gave him that advise several times in the presence of other commissioners,” Guanzon said in an interview with Bombo Radyo Bacolod.
Guanzon admitted that the scandal has affected Bautista’s ability to perform as Comelec Chairman. Documents, including payrolls, that require his signature are often delayed, she said.
And as the crisis deepens, Comelec as an institution will be adversely affected.
Indeed, it is selfish for Bautista to put his ego over the interests of the Comelec as a whole. He should not have hesitated one second after the scandal broke out. He should have resigned right away.
What is stopping Bautista from leaving his position?
Is he afraid that his departure would open a can of worms and expose election cheating as most people already suspect?
Bautista is burying himself deeper in sh*t with each day that passes by with him still hanging on.
