Sotto Denies Plagiarizing Kennedy
By N Mark Castro
One of the easiest things to write about the political saga of Sen. Vicente “Tito” Sotto is that you can keep repeating what you’ve written because he keeps doing what he’s done.
Take yesterday’s privilege speech where Sotto answered the allegations made against him by 37 individuals who filed an ethics complaint against him earlier in the day for alleged plagiarism.
Oh sure he gave a lame apology to the Kennedy’s for translating the Affirmation Speech of Robert F. Kennedy, but that he continues to display his arrogance by insisting that he did not commit plagiarism. Worse, he even had the gall to say:
But copying or imitation is the highest form of flattery…
That a senator of the Republic of the Philippines can blatantly get away with such woeful comment describes unto itself the very foundation of the character of Tito Sotto.
That a senator of the Republic of the Philippines can arrogantly divert the issue by finding fault instead that he is being targeted for his views against abortion and/or the RH Bill displays his ignorance.
That a senator of the Republic of the Philippines can so divide a nation and depress further the country to its lowest form of dignity due to his embarrassing hubris shows how his personal interests matter more.
Here’s one message I send unto you Tito Sotto that I hope reverberates in the once august halls of the Philippine Senate.
You do not deserve to be a Senator.
