Before the arrival of social media like Facebook and Twitter. I’ve heard about ‘paid rallyist’ but I quickly dismissed it as just a product of loose talks in the streets out to discredit those people fighting for a cause.
But thanks to the social media, information these days are easily propagated with just a click of the mouse.
Check the pic below and pay close attention to the woman giving a rallyist their stipend for a few hours of work.
Even a major TV network ran a story about the so-called ‘paid rallyist.’
Meanwhile, I stumbled upon this video showing the bag man or woman ‘allegedly’ paying the people that attended one of the rallies of a Presidential candidate. I don’t know if this is true, but I I want you to check the video out below.
Did Grace Poe-Francis Chiz Escudero 'supporters' receive P50 for attending rally? http://inq.ph/PoeEscudero50 #VotePH2016

However, there is also a possibility that the alleged video was a ‘set-up’ to malign the candidate in the eyes of the voters and obviously benefitting the other candidate, correct?
What is your opinion about this post?
