ROBREDO TO BONGBONG: I THINK SENATOR MARCOS KNOWS HE LOST THE ELECTIONS.
Vice President Leonor "Leni" Robredo has called out Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr on the inconsistencies of his election fraud accusations. Robredo vowed to stand up against the election protest filed by Marcos despite having less money and machinery. I think Senator Marcos knows he lost the elections… He has been using media. He has been using his money to spin a different tale and that [makes] it different. [I]can’t just also sit back and allow him to twist facts,” Robredo said.
According to Robredo, Marcos was initially saying that votes were taken from Escudero, which was already proven to be false. Now, the current allegations by Marcos is that there was a fourth server used during the elections. “At first he’s alleging I was shaving votes from Escudero and [it was] proven that I wasn’t… Now he’s alleging there was a fourth server,” Robredo stated.
This is referring to Marcos saying that Smartmatic breached the election servers to add to Robredo's votes during the unofficial canvassing. However, as pointed out by former Commission on Elections Chair Sixto Brillantes, who is also part of Marcos' election team, the unofficial count has no bearing on the official results released.
Robredo also added that going up against a Marcos will be difficult, being that he is from a rich and powerful political familiy.
