Heart Evangelista and mom for Miriam Santiago--ahora que, Chiz?

Heart Evangelista, the better half of Vice presidential bet Chiz Escudero was seen with her mother at the launching of Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago's presidential campaign at the University of the Philippines Bahay ng Alumni, the very same venue where another senator and reportedly Escudero's running mate, Senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares declared hers a few weeks ago.

Question---did Chiz gave his wife, Heart permission to appear in that event, which obviously, was an event staged by his running mate's political opponent? If yes, then, why? Did Escudero lose his prudence?

The "official explanation" was Heart's mother was the amiga of Defensor-Santiago. The mother-and-daughter tandem was seen also during the "launching" of Poe-Llamanzares but they never "endorsed" Grace. They did so with Miriam.

Curiously, this happened a day or two after the Binay-Chiz meeting. Is there a correlation or I'm just engrossed with political pareidolia? Maybe.

Adding to this is the fact that it is just a few days away from Grace Poe-Llamanzares' appearance in the preliminary investigation of her falsification case before the Comelec this November 3.

Or this is the so-called exit strategy of Escudero?
