Gilbert Remulla visits Andal Ampatuan Senior to get endorsement

Though Cynthia Villar denies ever visiting Andal Ampatuan Senior to get his so-called "blessing" for her husband Nacionalista standard bearer Manny Villar, a member of Villar's party was confirmed to have visited the warlord of Maguindanao.

And he is no other than Gilbert Remulla, the one with the infomercial lambasting trapos and encouraging us to vote for New Politics. To think that Remulla lied in his infomercial for reportedly telling us not to vote for trapos when he, himself, wanted to get the blessing of not just a trapo, but a warlord.

Remulla visited Andal senior for half an hour to get himself listed in the ones to be endorsed by one of the alleged masterminds behind the gruesome Maguindanao massacre. Here is the report of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, today, of Remulla's visit:

Remulla visited Andal Sr.
But another military officer, who asked not to be named for lack of authority to speak on the matter, said NP senatorial candidate Gilbert Remulla visited Andal Sr. a month ago.
“He was here for less than an hour,” the military officer said.
The officer said several Maguindanao town mayors also visited Andal Sr. to discuss the presidential, vice presidential and senatorial candidates they would campaign for in their respective towns.
“They (mayors) consulted the old man,” the source said.
Villar, Roxas, Bongbong
“I saw their line-up—Villar for president, Mar Roxas for vice president and their senatorial candidates included Jinggoy Estrada, Ramon Revilla, Gilbert Remulla, Bongbong Marcos and Miriam Defensor-Santiago,” the source said.
Cynthia was indeed in Davao on April 9. She met with Quiboloy.
She arrived in the morning on a commercial flight. Immediately upon arrival at the Davao International Airport, she boarded a helicopter and went to North Cotabato with Kidapawan City mayoral candidate Francis Palmones.
At around 1 p.m., she returned to Davao City and met with Quiboloy. She took the 4:50 p.m. flight back to Manila on that same day.

So much for a lying senatorial bet. If Remulla lied today, he will definitely lie tomorrow.
