Bataan Congresswoman Geraldine Roman on corruption claims: My conscience is clear
In a Monday national address, President Rodrigo Duterte shocked everybody when he named the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission’s list of lawmakers who are allegedly involved in anomalous projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways.
Included in the list is Bataan first district representative Geraldine Roman. Although Duterte said that there is still “no hard evidence” against the lawmakers, Congresswoman Roman was quick to go to social media and save her name.
“I am shocked to hear that my name was mentioned by the President in a list of Congressmen allegedly involved in anomalies in their projects. Public service has never been a money-making venture for me or my family whose good name is highly esteemed in Bataan. I am comforted by the fact that the President clarified that there is no verified information in this regard. I am open to any investigation to establish the truth on this matter and I am sure that my honor will be vindicated. My conscience is clear,” she wrote in a Facebook post and Instagram story.
In the comments section, many backed her out and did not believe the corruption claim.
