Earlier this week, Bayan Muna party-list representative Carlos Zarate told Sec. Mar Roxas: Explain the source of funds for your TV ads. Moments later, Zarate told Vice President Binay: You’re welcome.
Leni for VP
On Wednesday, about a hundred Liberal Party supporters led by Kaya Natin’s Harvey Keh, Jim Paredes, former Pampanga governor Eduardo Panlilio, singer-composer Noel Cabangon and former congressman Erin Tañada launched the ‘Leni Robredo for Vice President Movement.’ Internally, the new group is known by its alternative name, the ‘No To Grace Poe Circle.’

The new Mission Impossible movie has raked in more than $300M at the box-office.
