Makati Representative Teodoro Locsin is easily one of the funniest solons in Congress.
His quotable quotes on the looming failure of automated elections:
“… anyone with half a brain would know they (Smartmatic) did their best and suddenly this guy (TIM president Jose Mari Antunez) becomes unreasonable.”
“You can’t link TIM’s withdrawal to the administration because the administration has backed up automation 100 percent. In fact, the opposition in the House and the Senate have opposed automation and in a way they got what they wished for.
“Maybe he just wanted to extract money but we as lawyers don’t want to think like that so we have to ascribe the influence of the opposition to automation.”
From Gil Cabacungan Jr.’s report, Solon: P500-M demand did it
