JFAV Welcome Press Con:Rally

LOS ANGELES--In his recent column in the Philippine Star (May 12, 2019), PH Ambassador to the US Babe Romualdez (a nephew of Imelda Romualdez Marcos) personally attacked me as “a classic example (of the) the “professional troublemakers” for hire who pester the Philippine consulates to complain, including this longtime so-called leader who claimed that he had not received his voting packet.

This perennial rabble rouser conveniently forgot that he put his address as “care of” the consulate. So the whole time, the ballot was at the consulate just waiting to be claimed.”

This is a blatant LIE!

Before he made this defamatory accusation, Ambassador Romualdez should have checked his facts with the SF Consulate staff to see if there is any record of me changing my address from my home (of 30 years) in San Francisco to the “care of” the Consulate. Can anyone just change his/her voting address without leaving a paper trail?

I believe that someone at the direction of the Duterte government changed my address from my home in SF to the consulate’s address without my knowledge or consent and without even putting down “care of the Philippine Consulate” as Ambassador Romualdez falsely claimed.

By the way, it is curious that the changed address includes “United States of America” unless this address change was made the Philippines.

Produce the records, Mr. Ambassador.

I demand an apology.
