Before posing for the camera, check first if you’d want yourself seen with the group you’re having a photo with.
Akbayan Rep. Etta Rosales in a press release decried “malicious news spreading through text messages falsely accusing her and other legislators like Quezon Rep. Erin Tañada of voting in favor of the value added tax bill.”
She explained that she did not join the opposition and party-list bloc’s group in the anti-VAT, but she voted against the bill. “Let it be stated for the record that at 3:15 a.m., I cast my dissenting vote to the VAT bill. And that is a fact,” she said.
The House photo release showing Rosales with the pro-VAT representatives must have helped fuel the accusations.
She be better be careful next time.
