Koko: PRRD's sexual attack OK for he was teenager

Senator Aquilino Pimentel III on Monday dismissed as a likely "exaggeration" President Rodrigo Duterte's account of molesting his family's maid when he was a youth, and asked if people really wanted to "waste time" on the issue.

Pimentel, president of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), said that Duterte has recounted the story in the past, even during campaign sorties.

“Matagal na po 'yan. Kampanya pa nasabi na yan PAULIT ULIT PA. And if ever that happened, that was when he was a teenager probably at 13. He is now 73,” he said in a text message to GMA News Online when sought for comment.

“We want to make an issue of an allegation which (if true, but is most likely an exaggeration to make it a point that he sinned that is why he went to confession) happened 60 years ago? Do we really want to waste time and print space and screen pixels on this?” he added.
