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 TaÃ±ada 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.
