Senator Jinggoy Estrada cried foul over what he felt was “singling out” by investigators in the pork barrel scam.
Estrada said there were 371 lawmakers mentioned in the Commission on Audit (COA) report, but only himself, Senator Bong Revilla and Senator Juan Ponce Enrile are being put in the spotlight.
He also tagged House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II, who allegedly had P6.6 million of Jollibee purchases.
“Ano ito? Hamburger, Chickenjoy? Langhap na langhap ang sarap, hindi po ba?” he said in his privilege speech.
He also questioned why Gonzales’ case was not released to the media.
“Ito kaya ay dahil siya ay miyembro ng Liberal Party? Nagtatanong lang po,” said Estrada. -- News Now, ANC, September 25, 2013
