STATEMENT OF SEN. LEILA M. DE LIMA ON REP. HARRY ROQUE'S ETHICS COMPLAINT VS HER
First of all, I don't know Mr. Ron Salo, except for what I read in the news. I don't recall any instance that I have ever worked or dealt with him.
Secondly, I don't know where Mr. Roque is coming from. I'm sorry to hear that he has been expelled from his party. Maybe if he served his party better rather than wasting his time on baseless and inane attacks against me, he wouldn't have lost his constituents.
Thirdly, if he wants to be relevant and be in the news again--which is presumably why he is dragging my name into their intra-party dispute--do not do it at my expense. I have no interest in meddling with their internal party affairs. It would speak better of his worth as a public servant, as a member of the legal profession and as a human being if he faces his problems and fights his own battles honorably, rather than joining the open season declared by the President against me.
My advice to him is to focus on working on meaningful legislation rather than politicking. He won't find salvation by trying to score cheap brownie points from the President by attacking me.
