The lady Senator responded that she didn’t know that Dong is undertaking questionable actions when her campaign team taken the contribution.
“‘Yung campaign team ko ay may vetting process sa mga magpapakilala at magsasabing gusto nilang tumulong. As far as my campaign team knew then, at sa pagkakaalam ko rin ngayon, siya ay isang lehitimong negosyante,” she stated.
