"And no one can claim, Maceda said, that Escudero has cheated to make his way to the top spot. Not even former senator Loren Legarda, who has said that the number one spot could only be taken away from her if she was cheated.
'I don't think so. The vote of Chiz is legitimate but coming in Number 2 is not bad. I think she (Legarda) should accept the judgment of the people,' the GO official said.
Maceda noted that Escudero, Cayetano and especially Trillanes had no access to funding to help improve their chances of winning."I've heard this refrain before. Now that they are winning, cheating is not involved, when they are losing, cheating is rampant. Just like when they are trailing in surveys, the surveys are inaccurate and the survey firm is biased.
