THE camp of Leni Robredo is again shrouded in controversy after the people, they brought to make their concert rallies in Cavite, Bulacan, Pasig, Camanava, and Batangas appear jam-packed, complained that they were gypped because they have yet to receive the P500 per head promised them.

Robredo, a trailing presidential candidate, already denied that they brought busloads of people to the concert rallies but a screenshot of a text exchange between one of the Pinklawan’s coordinators and a group named Lawyers For Leni surfaced on social media.

“Ma’am follow up ko lang po yung additional payment sa mga sumama sa Bulacan rally 3,467 pax na hindi pa po nabayaran. Thank you,” the coordinator said in a text message demanding payment from Leni’s camp.

“Hello Donna, we need a list of names who attended the rally before we can release the payment. Also next time don’t recruit seniors, it’s too risky lang dami nahimatay namatanda,” the other party replied.

Robredo’s staff also directed the certain Donna to remind the so-called “hakot” crowd not to bring Philippine flags and bring “Pink placards at Pink balloons” instead.

At the end of the exchange, the staff also directed the coordinator to bring more people and get in touch with Mona and Karlo for the payment she is demanding.

While the Robredo camp has since been downplaying the issue of paid people attending their concert rallies, presidential aspirant Ping Lacson recently bared that one of his opponents is paying P500 per head to the attendees of their campaign rallies.

Lacson also earlier revealed that members of the terrorist group New Peoples’ Army were among those who were present at the Robredo rally in General Trias, Cavite.

President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed Lacson’s disclosure adding that the LeniNPA alliance is also planning to sow terror in the forthcoming May 9 polls.

“Sa sobrang desperadong manalo, lahat talaga gagawin ni Robredo,” a netizen denigrated.

On the other hand, a teacher complained that Robredo even brought underaged minors to attend their concert rallies.

Reports of the Robredo camp’s alleged practice of bringing “crowds for hire” have become widespread, as well as hiring photo editors to manipulate photos using photoshop to make it appear that huge crowds attend their rallies.
