Roxas liberal party vote buying caught red handed P1000 envelope by GMA7
Employees of the Quezon City government were caught red-handed distributing brown envelopes believed to contain cash in a gathering of barangay workers.
An exclusive report by GMA News reporter Steve Dailisan said they were tipped off that cash was being distributed to barangay workers in the sports complex owned and managed by the Quezon City government, along Roces Avenue in Quezon City.
One of those who queued and received an envelope said they were members of the Lupon ng Tagapamayapa (peace and arbitration council) from the city's districts 1, 3 and 6.
The source said they were invited to attend a political event and were asked to to line up for snacks and collect a small brown envelope.
Some participants claimed that reelectionist Mayor Herbert Bautista and unnamed city councilors spoke at the event. Quezon City Rep. Rey Calalay was also reported seen at the event.
The two officials did not respond to calls and text messages sent to their phone numbers.
Bautista, an actor turned politician, is eyeing a third and final term as mayor. He is challenged by Alexander Lague, Leon Peralta and Martin Sanchez Jr., all virtually unknown aspirants.
Calalay meanwhile, is up against preacher and former congressman Vincent "Bingbong" Crisologo.
