I Resign! -- Abalos

For Comelec Chairman Benjamin Abalos, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is not a model. For the controversies being thrown at him, Abalos, unlike GMA, resigns. For his resignation statement, click here.

But why resign? Why not be a kapalmuks? Here are a few and one reasons why Abalos resigned:

  1. If Abalos will stick his butt to the commission's chair, more beans will spill. And this will include a possible "Hello, Buddy!" at the Wack-wack from FG. So the best option is to shy away for a while. But wait for a few months and watch Abalos occupy another post as a GMA appointee. Just wait and see.
  2. The pressures from the Senate is not worth it all. It is better to play golf than attend Senate inquiries. FG is a better golf buddy.
  3. He cannot spend lavishly what he has earned. From commissions and kickbacks? Nobody knows. If he does spend his earnings, the BIR and the Ombudsman will follow his track and he doesn't want to be a fish like Erap. (Sen. Aquilino Pimentel wishing Abalos to become a state-witness? That's a wish upon a star.)
  4. He cannot work on his farm and plant kamote this early if he is still in the Comelec. Look at Garci. He is enjoying a free man's life after the Hello, Garci! controversy. And Garci could be a good model.
  5. Well, if he stays he might just wage war against Neri. And doing so might trigger more beans to spill.
  6. If he stays, he might also cause his tongue to slip. And he might cause the bomb to explode -- the bomb that GMA is also in kickback-time range.
