There’s an online petition that has been circulating on the internet seeking the ouster of Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III in 30 days. I actually predict that this might happen because many Filipinos are now mad with him especially when he insulted bloggers in general without knowing that bloggers are more powerful social user among any social network around the web.
The petition at the Change.org (a well known website to get an easy petition for a change and make difference or in laymen terms to get a strong strike online) accuses Sotto of allegedly using his political and showbiz influence in spreading misinformation on the reproductive health (RH) bill. It also accuses Sotto of being a serial plagiarist without remorse. It is also discovered that many in his speech were just taken from articles and blog in the web, but the most recent is his translation speech from former Democratic Senator of US Robert F. Kennedy, he literally translated it per paragraph and claim it in his own.
"He steals other people's opinions when he doesn't have his own and shamelessly distorts them to advance his own stupid, selfish cause. He is a very bad example to the youth who might as well be allowed to cheat in their exams, and he bends religious teachings to justify his acts," the petition said.
It also accuses Sotto of being sexist for blaming the death of his unborn child on his wife's unconscious use of contraceptives when he could have prevented the accidental pregnancy by wearing a condom. (Wait on the interview to his brother Vic Sotto and Joey they said that they often visited the baby until it suddenly dies and also the pills that he mention don’t exist in the time that his son die ~ a really liar person don’t deserve to get elected again)
The petition also emphasize that he is not a victim of cyber bullying, the people were just spoken about his wrong action in their free will. The petition has already gathered 9,000 signatures so far and it keeps growing, but the question is will the senator be move and will feel guilty of what he do? How far will this petition go, if the accused senator still justify that his action is not wrong (thick face)?
