The camp and supporters of Senator Grace Poe are celebrating after the Supreme Court decided to favor her candidacy. Although the decision has met with more petitions and criticisms even from COMELEC, it looks like Poe’s supporters believe that the Senator is a true person and qualified to be the next Philippine president.
Poe’s supporters missed one thing though. They ignored the fact that the senator was and have been an American citizen for almost her entire life.
Record shows that when Poe was appointed as chairman of MTRCB (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board), she was still an American citizen, contrary to what she told the media sometime in 2010.
Hindi ako maglalakas-loob na tumanggap ng posisyon sa gobyerno, sa MTRCB pa lang, kung hindi ako kwalipikado at hindi ako Pilipino” Poe told the media almost 6 years ago.
Poe’s supporters believed what she said, but the US Government’s record said otherwise.
US Internal Service Revenue (IRS) said Poe-Llamanzares dropped her US citizenship only on 2012.
