Why the bull whip in his safe? Bautista tells who it’s for

Commission on Elections chairman Andres Bautista denied allegations attributed to the camp of his estranged wife Patricia that he maintained a "sex den" at one of his condominium units.

In an interview with GMA News' Vicky Morales that aired on "24 Oras", Bautista denied that he had been unfaithful to his wife.

Bautista earlier accused Patricia of having been unfaithful to their marriage.

Told of CCTV evidence that would prove his infidelity, Bautista said, "Kung ano man ang gustong ipakita, go ahead."

"But ang mas maganda imbes na sabihin sa media, mag file ng kaso," Bautista said.

Bautista also explained the bull whip that he supposedly kept in one of the safes that he kept at home.

He said he bought it in India in October 2016, after he observed the conduct of the elections there.

Asked why he kept a whip in a safe, Bautista said,"Nilagay ko lang dun."

Bautista denied that the whip was a sex toy, saying he planned to give it as a gift to an election commissioner who acted as the body's "whip" when discussions became unruly.

"Plano ko sanang ibigay sa isang commissioner na pag kami nagkakawaway sa en banc, siya yung parang naglalatigo," Bautista said.

"Sex den. Di sana yung latigo nasa sex den," he added.

Puro paninira, pambabastos. Ayoko nang patulan," Bautista said. —NB, GMA News
