Estrada’s PMP to adopt Tolentino as Senate bet

Oct 11, 2015 @ 0:42

Former president and Manila mayor Joseph Estrada will “likely” adopt resigned Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino as one of the senatorial candidates of the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).

PMP is the political party founded by Estrada in 1991. It catapulted him to the vice presidency in the 1992 elections.
“Yes, we will likely adopt him as PMP senatorial candidate,” Estrada was quoted in a Philippine Star article.

Tolentino withdrew from the Liberal Party (LP) senatorial lineup after figuring in the controversial “Playgirls” scandal in Laguna. He has since apologized for the incident.

Estrada was one of the few who defended Tolentino, saying there was nothing immoral in the sexy performance of the group.

Tolentino allegedly presented the Playgirls’ performance as a birthday gift to Laguna 4th District Rep. Benjie Agarao.
