Looks like things are coming to a head for COMELEC Chairman Benjamin Abalos. His troubles are mounting just as his usefulness to the Current Administration is ebbing. So now seems as good as time as any to start the clock for a political deathwatch. FWIW, i fully support Arbet's call for Abalos to resign or have him impeached.
Update Sept-07-2007 12:22pm: I don't think it's about loyalties. Rather, I think the person refered to in this PDI Editorial is justifiably scared. That's what otherwise decent folks get for turning a blind eye on this Administration's moral failings and consorting with a government of thugs. Now, he's in too deep.
Update Sept-26-2007 11:33pm: Neri confirms the above in a testimony before the Senate.
