    Sa latest political ad ni Mayor Rody Duterte nag susumamo siya sa mamamayan na iboto si Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano para bise presidente dahil si Alan daw ang kanyang adviser na mag sasabi sa kanya kung tama o mali ang kanyang gagawin bilang pangulo at kung hindi raw iboto ng mamamayan si Alan ay huwag na rin po siyang iboto sa pagka pangulo? Tama po ba itong narinig natin sa bibig mismo ni Maytor Digong? Ibig bang sabihin ay wala siyang panindigan kung ano ang kanyang gagawin? Matagal ng issue ito kay Sen. Chiz Escudero na siya raw ang Rasputin ni Sen. Grace Poe pag sila ay nahalal sa pinaka mataas na posisyong ng gobyerno ngunit ni minsan ay hindi naringgan ng ganitong panawagan si Sen. Grace Poe tungkol kay Sen. Chiz. Sino ngayon ang Rasputin ni Mayor Rody Duterte?

    When Digong becomes president, he will search the source of this shabu or where this shabu originated because as president, he covers the entire country while mayor it is just Davao City.
