Hindi dumalo ng session sa Kongreso si Fourth District Leyte Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez kahapon, November 16, para samahan at suportahan ang asawang si Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez sa pagsasampa nito ng kasong adminstratibo laban sa tatlong pulis na nagsangkot sa actor-politician bilang drug protector diumano.
Tulad ni Richard, pulitika rin ang nakikitang rason ni Lucy kung bakit pilit sinisira ng iba ang pangalan ng kanyang asawa.
Pahayag niya sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “Well, nung una talaga, I took it as a bad joke.
"Because si Richard naman, he’s been in show business for many years. Hindi na bago sa kanya ang intriga.
“Lahat na siguro ng klase ng intriga naikabit na sa kanya, pero this is the first time as serious as drugs is being attached to his name.
“This is politically motivated and Richard and I are very supportive of the war against drugs.
“We support the President [Rodrigo Duterte] in his all-out war against drugs.”
Sa tagal na rin ni Lucy sa pulitika, hindi pa rin ba siya sanay sa ganitong siraan at batuhan ng akusasyon?
Tugon niya, “You know, masasanay ka, things like this is expected.
“It’s expected especially during the campaign season.
“Pero tao lang naman tayo, it doesn’t hurt any less every time we try.
“It’s just irritating, it’s frustrating that we have to go through something like this.
“Kasi ang puntirya lang naman nila dito is just black propaganda, e.”
Ayon pa kay Lucy, “Baligtarin man nila ang buong mundo, wala silang makikita yung sa drugs, because that is one thing that we will never ever tolerate, one thing we will never be with.
“Richard ran on a very strong anti-drug platform.
“I believe that our constituents resonated with that, that’s why he ran and that’s why he won.
“He has tried to give back by being an anti-drug crusader, by leading by example.
“And no one can undo, in one situation like this, all that he has worked for.”
Positibo ang kongresista na sa huli ay lalabas ang katotohanan.
Sabi ni Lucy, “I have faith in the justice system. I have confidence also.
“I believe our President will not tolerate ninja cops who abuse their authority and who hide behind their uniform and wish to enjoy immunity.”
