Can a showbiz icon with a criminal case run for office? Rowena Guanzon weighs in
It seems Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon is offering unsolicited advice to TV host Willie Revillame as he hinted at a potential 2022 campaign.
The ever-savage Guanzon shared a tip on Twitter about whether a certain showbiz personality can seek elective office despite facing an unresolved criminal case.
“I was asked if an entertainer can validly run for office when he is accused in a pending case. I said yes, because the case is not final, and kung makapal sya,” the abogado said.

Netizens were quick to guess she is referring to Revillame, poking fun at the Wowowin host and his antic of handing out jackets and cash to avid viewers.
