NEW YORK CITY -- Who is the Judas Escariot of Iloilo City in the Philippines?

This question has been buzzing ever since the erratic President Rodrigo R. Duterte placed both Iloilo City and Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog figuratively in the shooting range for being "the most shabulized city" and "narco-politician" respectively.

American mythology, insofar as it’s connected to the criminal, is steeped in desperadoes getting away from the crime scene just as fast as they got to it.

NEW YORK CITY -- Those who are planning to run for Iloilo City mayor in the Philippines in 2019 can always say that Vice Mayor Jose "Joe III" Espinosa III isn't fit to become city mayor.

His being a "shy-typed" and "aloof" have become the butts of scorn and derision among keen political observers in coffee and barber shops.
