Lacson, Pichay trade barbs over opening up bank accounts

Calling each other "ignorant and stupid," senatorial candidates Panfilo Lacson and Propero Pichay, Jr. criticized each other over a bill allowing the scrutiny of government officials' bank accounts.

The word war erupted after Pichay dismissed Lacson's challenge that dared administration bets to open their bank accounts to promote transparency in government. Pichay said Lacson's bill was "ignorant and stupid" as well as unnecessary since the Commission on Audit is already mandated to look into candidates' bank accounts.

Lacson's dare came as an offshoot of a bill he filed that seeks to exclude government officials from the Bank Secrecy Law.

The re-electionist senator threw the insult back at Pichay. He said the Surigao del Sur congressman should review the law. "I'm at a loss for words to describe him, aside from being very stupid. He doesn't know what he is talking about," Lacson said.


Are you willing to vote for these two senate candidates? I am sure when the two gets a seat at the senate this kind of scenario will still going on. They will become the cat and dog at the senate and we don’t want that because we wanted seriousness with our law and we don’t want things like this to happen again. So, ako kung boboto man ako, pag-isipan ko muna kung karapat dapat ba talagang iboto ang dalawang ito.
