The Ombudsman skirted a potential crisis by technically complying with the Supreme Court’s demand -and throwing one Comelec commissioner, Resurreccion Borra, potentially to the wolves (potentially because he could, and even should,Ã‚Â be impeached, which is different from saying that the House will impeach him). But the other Comelec commissioners, including the Chairman, Benjamin Abalos, are still under investigation, while some smaller fry and people from the private sector face dismissal or charges.
Will the Supreme Court accept this pseudo-Solomonic solution? For now, it seems the Ombudsman dodged a bullet.
