Rappler reports the advertisement, which aired on TV Patrol last September 26, highlights VP's "promise to poor Filipinos, who make up the majority of voters."

"This is a fight for all Filipinos sleeping in push carts; for children going to class without notebooks and books and on an empty stomach; for peons and carpenters without homes; for farmers without their own land to farm; for those who, day in and day out, must fall in line to ride the MRT and LRT, braving the traffic and the flood, and going home at night with fear in their hearts because of the rampant criminality," said Binay, who has been charged with plunder along with his son, Makati City mayor Junjun Binay, in relation to an allegedly over-priced multi-million-peso New Makati City Parking building contract.

The same ad has been posted on the vice president's official Facebook page with a caption that reads:

Ang laban na hinaharap ko ngayon ay hindi lamang laban para kay Jojo Binay. Ito ay laban para sa sambayanang Pilipino.

The remarks in the comments section of the particular posts are all-praises, obviously, except for one.

It takes tons of guts to post "The 27 Allegations" but its better to voice out sentiments than keeping mum on issues that affect society.

It remains to be proven though whether or not the claims are true. Otherwise people will take it with a grain of salt.
