Retired broadcaster Jay Sonza reacted in disbelief after the news report that Senator Ralph Recto landed at the top 3 of the richest senators in 2019.
Recto’s garnering the top 3 behind Villar and Pacquiao did not fail to catch the attention or raise the eyebrows of netizens, including Sonza who has taken to Facebook to question the origin of Recto’s wealth.
If you look at the graphics above, Recto’s wealth is valued at P555.3 million, although a far cry from the 1st and second placers, he stood head and shoulders above his closest pursuers at 4th, 5th and 6th places.
You can’t blame Sonza for questioning Recto’s wealth because as far as he was concerned, Recto never had a legit business after his college studies.
Besides, Vilma Santos was never that rich when they married and earning millions as an actress. Besides, Santos paid millions to the BIR for unpaid taxes. [ABS-CBN]
Sonza made quite an impression among his FB followers with his arguments and very convincingly at that, if you based it on the reactions of netizens.
Here’s the short FB post of Jay Sonza.
Saang bulsa ng Langit nanggaling ang yaman niya?
He never had a legit business after college studies.
Hindi na ganoon kayaman is Ate Vi noong magsama sila at milyones PA ang binayaran ng aktres sa BIR noon sa kaso.
Walang balitang nanalo ng 10 times jackpot sa lotto.
He never had any high paying professional practice.
He had never been reported to have inherited billion worth of assets or monies.
Piano siya yumaman ng ganito?
Netizen Nicky Ceralvo wants a lifestyle check for Recto.
Lifestyle check dapat unexplained wealth
Netizen Jebsen Earl S. Ambata joked that perhaps, Recto grow money-bearing trees in his farm.
Sa lupain nila tinatanim pera, tumutubo at binubunga sa puno.di mo ba alam
Netizen Lucy Terriblquilao agreed with Sonza’s observation.
Bakit nga ba sir Jay, kahit po matagal na siya sa politics at pagbabasihan lang e ang kanyang naging salary e hindi po talaga aabot sa ganoong kalaking yaman meron siya sa ngayon, 🤔mapapa isip ka po talaga.
