Amidst the backlash generated by the #LeniLeaks scandal, Loida Lewis released a statement earlier today to defend herself from criticism on social media.
On Monday, January 9, 2017, Facebook user Edwin Jamora posted an emotional response to Loida Lewis’ assertion that like the rest of the OFW’s, she retains right to speak out on developments in the Philippines.
Jamora said that Lewis and her ilk do not represent him and the rest of the Overseas Filipino Workers.
Jamora is an American citizen but confesses he is Filipino at heart.
Proof? He religiously sends money back home and understand his contribution to the Philippine economy like many OFW’s.
He said it’s plain sick if every OFW’s start thinking he has the right to unseat a duly elected president.
Jamora said that following Loida Lewis’ logic could spell chaos for the country.
Jamora added that as an American citizen, he has the right to criticize whomever he wanted to criticize but planning to unseat a legitimately elected president of a sovereign country is different.
Jamora said that planning to unseat a duly elected president of an independent republic that the US is at peace while forgetting to set the privacy to private in an online forum is called ‘bloody stupidity.’
Mr. Edwin Jamora is a Filipino-American based in California.

I am an Overseas Filipino and Loida Nicolas Lewis and her cohorts here in San Francisco do not represent me.
I am an American and very much a Filipino. I make alay to the Church of Western Union pretty regularly. My monthly remittances and all the other emergency remittances in between is what’s helping the economic engine in the Philippines and collectively, that is, counting all the remittances of all the OFWs in the world, it amounts to the tune of about $28 billion US Dollars a year.
I disagree with Loida Nicolas Lewis. Just because we send monies to the Philippines, that does not allow us to unseat a legitimately elected president of that nation. That’s just plain sick mentality.
If we follow her logic, then every single OFW that sends money to the Philippines have the right to unseat a legitimately elected President. Imagine the chaos.
As an American, I appreciate that our constitution here allows me to criticize whoever I wanted to criticize. That right is also accorded to Loida Nicolas Lewis. However, planning to unseat a legitimately elected president of a sovereign country is different. That will cost us our US passports.
Now, planning to unseat a president of an independent republic that the United States is at peace with and forgetting to set the rights to private in an online forum, that’s not against the law. It’s just plainly called bloody stupidity. Pampered yaya reared starbucks subversives do the same thing.
