okay, we get it. we know it. richard gomez really wants to enter politics and he really wants to get elected. he has tried this at least 3 times already. and on this third time, he once again loses the election and this time even before it started.
the CMELEC just disqualified gomez from running for congressman in Leyte.
gomez has tried to get an election seat before. if my memory serves me right he first tried through the party list. on that one i think he got disqualified. the other time was he ran for senator and also lost that one. gomez together with other celebrities lost big in that election.
we understand the persistence of gomez to get elected into a public office, any public office but he needs to improve on something very important – he needs to do better planning and he needs to be a lot smarter than what he is showing now. to us it appears gomez has the right intentions but he gets killed on laws, rules and poor planning. how does he expect to do well in public office when he can’t even properly plan his candidacy?
Richard Gomez: Latest LP bet to be axed by Comelec

MANILA, Philippines—The Liberal Party (LP) may have been allowed to keep its celebrity endorsers but it lost one of its star candidates for a congressional seat in Leyte.
Actor Richard Gomez, who was sworn in as LP member in November last year, was disqualified by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) from running in the fourth district of the province for lack of residency.
Gomez became the latest LP member to suffer defeat in the hands of the Comelec. Earlier, the poll body nullified the 2007 election victories of three governors who are LP members—Grace Padaca of Isabela, Eddie Panlilio of Pampanga and Joselito Mendoza of Bulacan.
Neric Acosta, an LP senatorial candidate, said the series of defeats that the party was suffering in the hands of the Comelec could be part of a tactic to derail the LP’s national campaign.
