Alcover calls Osmeña a ‘crybaby’
Cebu City Councilor Pastor Alcover, Jr. called Mayor Tomas Osmeña a “crybaby” after the latter sued him for libel for spreading “fake news” against him.
In a Facebook post, Alcover said the cases filed against him will not stop him from criticizing the mayor.
“Those whom God wish to destroy they first make him mad,” the politiko wrote.
“Ngayon ko lang nalaman na iyakin pala ang 8th floor mayor. Patuloy sa kagaguhan mo. Hindi kita aatrasan,”he said in Cebuano language.
Osmeña earlier filed administrative and criminal complaints before the Ombudsman against Alcover for a Facebook post, accusing the mayor of siding with the Ateneo de Manila University high school student involved in a bullying incident.
He also filed a separate complaint for grave misconduct and violation of the Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.
The mayor asked the court to preventively suspend Alcover from holding public office.
