Manila Mayor Isko Moreno twits ‘lawyer-critic’

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Friday slammed a critic who called him out for working as a brand endorser in order to gather funds to donate for various causes.

“Eh ang daming nag-gagaling-galingan. I challenge you, edi puntahan ninyo ‘yung kontrata na pinirmahan ko (para malaman kung kanino napupunta),” Moreno said in a video published on his Facebook page.

“Tignan ninyo (‘yung tseke), ayan, province of Batangas (nakapangalan),” he said while showing a check he would donate to residents affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano. “Lahat ‘yan, nang pinagmodelan ko, ni singko (wala ako nakuha).”

A certain Fahima “Fudge” Tajar called Moreno out over his billboard endorsement through her social media posts.

Tajar, a lawyer according to his Facebook profile, claimed that Moreno violated the Section 90 of the Local Government Code.

Tajar said under Section 90 of the LGC, Moreno is prohibited from “…engaging in any occupation other than the exercise of their functions as local chief executive.”

Moreno has been sharing through his Facebook page that he has been working for various brands to earn money for various cases.

The latest was with two brands where he earned some P4 million which was allotted to residents affected by Taal’s unrest. (Joseph Pedrajas)
