Senator Lito Lapid’s wife Marissa Lapid was thrown in the slammer for smuggling $50,000 in Las Vegas. Oh what nerve! Gambling the taxpayer’s money as the impeachment against CJ Corona is going on. I just couldn’t contain my glee at the irony. Please let her rot in jail. Anyway why not throw in Lito Lapid in the impeachment since it would save time. After all, wasn’t Corona being impeached for not declaring his assets? It’s a high time that Lito Lapid will be impeached also for not declaring his assets.
ANGELES CITY, Philippines – The wife of Sen. Lito Lapid was arrested shortly after her landing in Las Vegas last Jan. 15 in connection with the dollar smuggling charges filed against her after she was accosted at the international airport there last November.
Senator Lapid confirmed yesterday that his wife Marissa was arrested but she was released on bail. She will, however, remain in Las Vegas pending the resolution of the case involving the alleged smuggling of $50,000 in cash last November.
He said an American lawyer is now assisting Marissa.
“I have also sought the help of the Department of Foreign Affairs to find out what really happened,he said, adding that he has coordinated with the US embassy in Manila for clarification.
