He may have been hit below the belt for his high ratings in the latest Pulse Asia survey.Opposition vice presidential candidate and incumbent mayor of the country’s top financial district, Jejomar Binay, said the issue wouldn’t have surfaced if his ratings had not gone up in the vice presidential surveys.
It has been revealed that Jojo Binay had an affair with another woman that caused the collapse of his marriage to Dr. Elenita Binay. The vice presidential bet admitted in an interview that he indeed had an exra-marital affair. The photo of Jojo Binay and the alleged mistress has spread over the internet.
“If I didn’t get to this point where my ratings go up every day and that I probably would win the elections, this issue wouldn’t have come up,” Binay said. “This is black propaganda.”
But Binay on Friday admitted having an affair with another woman “a long time ago.”
Binay’s disclosure came a day after Pulse Asia showed him closing in on survey leader Liberal Party vice presidential aspirant Sen. Manuel Roxas II.
It also showed him barging into second place, overtaking Nacionalista Party candidate Sen. Loren Legarda.
Binay came clean about the content of an e-mail sent to news desks and reporters that he once had a relationship with a woman other than his wife, former Makati Mayor Dr. Elenita Binay.
