“In protest and retaliatory action against her rude behavior, the people of Candaba and Masantol threw the basketballs which Korina Sanchez had given them into the garbage.”
From a story in the Daily Tribune by Angie M. Rosales and Charlie V. Manalo based from a post in Kwento mo sa Pagong Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas’ wife, Korina Sanchez, Pampanga officers said that the lady anchor appears to be mishandling the campaign of Mar, even to the point of losing support for him in vote-rich Pampanga.
It was claimed by a source that the TV news anchor reportedly begged off from having selfies with her hosts in the towns of Candaba and Masantol in Pampanga, and merely took a bite of the sumptuous meal prepared for her and her entourage.
“She even barred the mayor and vice mayor of Masantol from entering the municipal hall as she held a meeting with members of the gay community in the said town, which ironically, was also organized for her by the town vice mayor. “That was very rude of her,” the source told The Tribune.
“First, she refused to have pictures taken with the councilors of Candaba when they asked for selfie,” the source said, with Korina saying: “No, no! do it later!”
After her speech, the source said the television news anchor was invited by Mayor Rene Maglangue for lunch which she declined saying she had to proceed to Masantol.
At that juncture, Masantol Vice Mayor Alvin Ignacio reportedly approached Sanchez and introduced himself as the Masantol Vice Mayor and that he was to escort her to his town. Again, Sanchez reportedly declined saying she can find her way to Masantol.
Upon getting to Masantol, the source said Sanchez did not even bother to greet Mayor Danilo Guintu who was already waiting for them and immediately proceeded to the stage and delivered her speech.
After the short program, Sanchez reportedly proceeded to the municipal hall for a scheduled meeting with some 100 members of the Masantol gay community. However, both Guintu and Ignacio were allegedly prevented by Sanchez’s security escorts when they tried to enter the venue where the meeting was being held.
As a form of protest and retaliatory actions against her alleged rude behavior, the source said the people of Candaba and Masantol threw the basketballs Sanchez had earlier given them into the garbage.
“Don’t be surprised if Mar gets zero votes here in Pampanga. Korina is effectively handling her campaign on how to lose the elections for Mar,” the source said.
