Sen. Bong Revilla @ PDAF Scam

by: Psychic August

PDAF Charges and Political Career

Being the 1st of the 3 senators to be denied bail by the Sandiganbayan, Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. will face a dark period in his life during the next several years of his life.  While still being able to function as a senator even while in detention, Senator Revilla will not be that active as a senator just before 2016, unlike his co accussed and friend, Senator Jinggoy Estrada.

As I have indicated in my earlier predictions for the 2016 Presidential Elections, Sen. Revilla, Jr. will run for president in 2016, even if he is detained in Camp Crame.  But he will lose.  What will follow for him after that is several years in quiet detainment while being visited by family, kin, friends, and supporters.  This will be interspersed with frequent visits to various hospitals, the only times he will be able to leave briefly his detainment, as his team of lawyers continue to battle legally for his freedom.

It will be a few years after the year 2022, when a legal technicality raised on his behalf by political allies, that Bong Revilla Jr. will emerge from his detainment.  He will not anymore pursue politics at this time, leaving it to the younger Revillas.  He will, instead, revive his showbiz career.

The Family

His wife, Congresswoman Lani Mercado, will have her political career severely affected by her husband's being accussed in the Php10 billion pesos pork barrel scam and subsequent detainment.  She will not be able to regain her position as congresswoman of her district in Cavite, nor will she be able to hold any other government positions hereafter.

Facing this impasse due to waning popularity and public mistrust, she will leave it to the younger generation of Revilla's to continue the family's political pursuits.  Thus, through these younger generation of Revilla's, the family will still be a strong political force in the future.
