Robredo camp in a position to take unfair advantage of the ‘wet ballot’ scandal!

Wet ballots. It’s the bane of the on-going vote recount being conducted following suspicions of electoral fraud in the 2016 elections that led to the dubious “victory” of now presumptive “vice presdient” Leni Robredo.

Current VP Leni Robredo’s vanity and delusions of grandeur got her in deep trouble
