The Napolists or so-called lists of allegedly guilty officials in the P10 billion pork barrel scam of Janet Lim-Napoles are muddling the pork barrel scam issue. Imagine this. One unsigned but highly publicized list included the name of neophyte congressman Gerald ‘Samsam’ Gullas. Can’t the bright boy behind the list distinguish former Rep. Eduardo Gullas from the incumbent grandson?
But then, I think the Napoles lists would have not gained much traction had our officials been decent men. If “delicadeza” has reigned, honorable men would resign when facing such plunder allegations.
“True statesmen, those honorable men who are bred and raised to adhere to strict codes of conduct, will immediately resign under public accusations against their integrity, to allow investigations and legal scrutiny to proceed, unobstructed by any influence coming from them,” said the Cebu Coalition Against the Pork Barrel System.
The coalition statement is the latest issued as the group prepares for a national consultation at the residence of Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma later this month
