ORTIGOZA: The Immoral Senator Leila de Lima
Senator Leila Norma Eulalia Josefa Magistrado de Lima blamed human frailties when she divulged to GMA-7’s TV talk show anchor Winnie Monsod her illicit relationship with her driver- bodyguard Ronnie Dayan.
Because of her revelation, De Lima should resign as senator.
What she had done was shameful and immoral.
The criminal law on concubinage in the Philippines says:
“Any husband who shall keep a mistress in the conjugal dwelling, or shall have sexual intercourse, under scandalous circumstances, with a woman who is not his wife, or shall cohabit with her in any other place, shall be punished by prision correccional in its minimum and medium periods. The concubine shall suffer the penalty of destierro (Article 334, Revised Penal Code).
Concubinage, however, is a private crime. The People of the Philippines could not sue De Lima on her infraction. It needs the sole complainant Norlyn, the wife of De Lima’s paramour Dayan, to sue her so the case sticks.
“But how can the court or the prosecutor hail Norlyn, when she received forty thousand pesos monthly from then Justice Secretary De Lima to keep mum on the affair?,” my source Deep Throat (DP) told me when DP got the pomelos and durian I brought from Davao City when DP dropped by at our house in Dagupan City.
Deep Throat’s narration on De Lima and Norly could be read in my earlier blog.
The marriage of De Lima to lawyer Plaridel Bohol was already annulled but Norlyn and Ronnie lived in the Orange House in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan.
“Cohabiting with a married man and had a tryst at the White House she allegedly built while the wife and children lived nearby the Orange House she reportedly funded its construction was revolting before the eyes of sane Filipinos,” Deep Throat emphatically told me as I excitedly commented on it over my radio program.
But the government can still sue the deviant senator with administrative cases like disbarment because of her disclosure.
The senate, through two-third votes, as mandated by the Philippine Constitution, can expel her, too.
If she is a male senator, public opinion would be lenient on her because of our machismo culture where a Casanova is envied if not lauded.
But she is a lady senator and not a mistress for Christ sake!
It runs smacks on the conservative Filipino traits on how women behave.
If De Lima is not a high public official, the public would not give a fuss on her scandalous act. But she was the justice secretary when she had that licentious relationship with Dayan.
She should not only be a paragon of our laws but an epitome of a faithful disciple of the law like on how to control her libido.
She did not only screw us, but screw herself before public condemnation and ridicule.
Nakakahiya anak ng bakang dalaga, nadamay tayong mga Filipino!
Because of that disclosure, the suspicion that she abetted Dayang’s conspiracy with jail security officials and dangerous drug peddlers to perpetuate the narcotics trade in and out of the national jail in Muntinlupa becomes stronger.
That human frailties Senator de Lima cited as reason she felt in loved with a married man made me recall how former U.S First lady the “prettiest of ‘em all” Jacqueline “Jackie” Bouvier Kennedy, a former photographer of Washington Times-Herald, had trysts with her married brother-in-law in New York’s Senator Robert “Bobby” Kennedy and had sex with a Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis at his super yacht Christina despite being married to then incumbent President John F. Kennedy known as JFK.
Here’s Larry Flynt, owner of the smut Hustler Magazine, on the book he co-authored with David Eisenbach titled: One Nation Under Sex.
“Aside from her brother-in-law, Jackie carried on affairs with designer of JFK’s eternal flame memorial, Jack Warnecke; legendary venture capitalist Andre Meyer; and former undersecretary of defense Roswell Gilpatric. She also bagged (God Father flick’s actor) Marlon Brando on a double date that Lee Radziwill (sister of Jackie, sex mate of President Kennedy despite being married to Jackie, and girlfriend too of Onassis – Mortz Ortigoza) arranged in February 1964. After dinner at Washington ‘s exclusive Jockey Club, Lee and Jackie made a show of leaving the restaurant separately from Brando and Lee’s date, movie director George Englund, one of her many lovers. The men soon rejoined the sisters back at Jackie’s house. Lee and Englund canoodle on the couch, while Brando and Jackie drank and danced. Brando recalled that after Jackie suggestively “pressed her thight” into, they sat down and began to “make out”.
“Brando noted “Jackie’s boyish hips” and “muscular frame”; I’m not sure she knew what she was doing sexually, but she did it well… Only the National Enquirer dared to report on Jackie’s new lifestyle in a 1996 piece that was aptly titled “From Mourner to Swinger”.
