Busted! Gary Alejano's campaign strategy is to spread fake news to gain attention, media mileage

Faustino ‘Inno’ Dy V, LNB national president, issues statement
Faustino “Inno” Dy V, the national president of the Liga ng mga Barangay (LNB), said on Tuesday that no public funds were used to buy the T-shirts given away during the first LNB National Assembly held from Feb. 25 to 27, 2019, in Pasay, contrary to the allegation of Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano.

In a statement, Dy said: “We can assure the public that no public funds from the LNB or the individual barangays were used to purchase campaign materials of any candidate. The LNB remains an apolitical association of punong barangays.”

“The T-shirts referred to by Congressman Gary Alejano in his statement were sent by Bayan For Bong Go,” Dy added. “It is a private organization of individuals who are supportive of the candidacy of former SAP [Special Assistant to the President] Bong Go and all the shirts were donated by the said organization to all the participants of the first Liga ng mga Barangay National Assembly,” Dy added.

Go is a candidate in the senatorial slate of President Rodrigo Duterte.

According to Dy, Go himself did not consent to and had no knowledge of the donation made by the private organization.


Debunking Gary Alejano's petty campaign strategy

Here's an opinion piece originally posted on Luminous by Trixie Cruz-Angeles & Ahmed Paglinawan Facebook page:

That’s not how it works, Gary.

Ayon kay Gary Alejano, gumamit daw si Bong Go ng public funds para makapag giveaway ng mga tshirt nung nag assembly ang mga barangay officials. Ang prueba nya:

1. Memo ng DILG na nagsasabing maaaring sagutin ng mga LGU yung gastos ng mga opisyal na dumayo such as hotel lodgings.

2. Kasama sa gastos yung fees para sa materials ng meeting.

3. Nag giveaway ng mga tshirts ni BG at diumano’y isinama sa kit ng materials.

Ayon kay Mr. Alejano, dahil ang tshirts ay kasama sa kit, binayaran ng mga participants yon, using public funds.

Sumagot tuloy si Faustino Dy, kasalukuyang presidente ng liga ng mga baragay (the youngest and maybe the cutest to hold that position, naks) para sabihing walang ni isang sentimong ginastos para kay dating SAP. At bakit nganaman nila gagawin yon, eh ang dali hulihin.

Nakalimutan yata ni Alejano na ang pruweba ng paggastos ng public funds ay resibo, purchase order, resolution, o iba pang kahalintulad na dokumento. Wala naman siyang naipakitang ganito.

So ang pagkukulang niya sa ebidensiya, idinaan na lang sa lakas ng loob. Ika sa Inggles, if you can’t prove it, pretend it’s already a fact. Yung nga lang, kung gaano kalakas ang apog sa ganito, ganun rin ang lagapak.
