Korina had accepted apology from Aquilino Pimental regarding the ” insertion” joke he had made against her husband, Mar Roxas.
Korina in an ABS-CBN interview last Wednesday, “ Sino ba naman ako para hindi magpatawad”.
Pimental apologized for for his remark and added that he did not intend to Korina or any other women. Pimentel had made the “sex cracked” joke during through a prayer before Tuesday’s plenary session.
“This is what politics can do to people, the first thing that flies out of the window is honor,” said Sanchez, who was attending a showbiz party for Roxas hosted by film producer Lily Monteverde or “Mother Lily.”
Roxas is running for vice president under the Liberal Party.
“We’re really hoping that this election becomes one of the most honorable, marangal, malinis (clean). Wala sanang below the belt na siraan, sana naman ano. (I hope there are no below-the-belt mudslinging),” she said.
Sanchez, a veteran broadcaster, said politics can bring out the worst in people, especially among those with “brittle character.”
This was the first time that she spoke about Pimentel’s “insertion” joke, which Roxas earlier said was an insult against his wife.
