Kennedy to Sotto: Apologize

By N Mark Castro

After months of misplaced confidence, Sen Tito Sotto finally faces yet a new yet formidable complaint against his plagiarism and this time with no less than Kerry Kennedy, daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, and president of the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights.

It’s still a wonder among Filipinos how and why the senator continues to ignore the public clamor for his apology. Instead, he continues to blame everyone as publicity-hungry citizens who don’t know any better.

That he has continuously committed successive acts of plagiarism does not affect him.

That he has continuously defied the public clamor for an outright apology does not affect him.

That he has enjoined the entire Senate of the Republic of the Philippines, including the acquiescence of the President, to sign into law his so-called “insertion” to the Anti-Cyber Crime Bill does not affect him.

That he has brought shame to the country internally and elevated it to the international level does not affect him.

I’ve posted several pieces on this issue already — some in jest, some as a serious look on the political hubris of Senator Tito Sotto, and it has taken quite some time before somebody of importance had decided to take up the cudgels for those whose voices have been drowned by Sotto’s arrogant abuse of power.

Tito Sotto Did Not Plagiarize Kennedy

And I’ve said it before and I say it again.

There is only one word in the entire English language that can best describe the political career of Sen. Vicente “Tito” Sotto, this is it: Embarrassing.
