The Corona Impeachment Trial

"He who has no sin cast the first stone."  That was what Jesus said to the mob who was about to stone a woman accused of adultery.  

Justice Renato Corona basically appealed to his accusers using this bible verse when he challenged the senators and congressmen to sign a similar waiver to open their dollar accounts.  As expected, the request was downplayed and "duly noted" by the senator judges.  That in itself tells us that the same people who are judging the Chief Justice are themselves with their own dark secrets to keep.

The Corona trial established a precedent and if PNoy is serious about his desire to have a transparent and decent government he will use this to pursue the corrupt the same way he lobbied to have the Chief Justice answer for his "crimes".  But before he does this PNoy himself should subject himself to the same scrutiny.  Unless PNoy clears himself first he will remain to be the same as his predecessors who vowed the same fight against government corruption.

Let us not dwell too much on his lovelife because it does not have anything to do with his job.  Let us scrutinize him for what he needs to do and push him to make good his promise for a better Philippines.
