QC solon faces charges for CF card possession
Manila (25 May) -- For the unauthorized possession of a Compact Flash (CF) card, a Quezon city lawmaker may be in hot water.
Commission on Elections (COMELEC) through spokesperson James Jimenez said the poll boady is contemplating on filing charges to Quezon City Representative Annie Rosa Susano for her possession of CF cards, which were supposed to be used in the last May 10 polls.
Representative Susano alleged that the cards were used to rig the Quezon City mayoralty poll results, which made her lose to actor and incumbent vice mayor Herbert Bautista.
Asked by Smartmatic Asia president Cesar Flores where she got the CF Cards, Susano retorted back that it was not her problem but Smartmatic's.
The Comelec has issued the statement since CF cards were supposed to be kept by authorized persons only.
The matter of the CF cards popped up after the house of representatives conducted hearings in the alleged poll fraud. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
