"What are we in power for?
Why should we pretend to be saints when in reality we are not? We are not angels. When we die we will all go to hell. It is better to be in hell because in that place there are no investigations, no Secretary of Justice, no Secretary of the Interior to go after us.
"When Jesus Christ died on the cross, He made a distinction between the good crook and the bad crook. We can aspire to be good crooks."
~Senate President Josť Avelino, 1949
