Nacionalista Part vice-presidential candidate Loren Legarda was ridiculously accused of filing a bill to block a proposed increase of teacher’s salaries. She was also wrongfully accused of filing another bill that would block a proposed increase in the AFP and remove the leave of balance of the soldiers after retirement.

Who would even think of blocking these propositions? These wild accusations are nothing but black propaganda aimed at Loren. It is disappointingly tasteless to start spreading baseless claims like these against the Champion of Women, the Youth and the Environment!

As of January 11, 2010, both of these libelous claims were disproved by two independent letters of certification from the Senate.

We have to learn to look for hard evidence and not just take in anything we read or hear as fact. The elections are only less than a month away so developing good judgment is a must.
