In a highly anticipated Monday speech, senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla's was expected to respond to last week's corruption charges, and offer a list of revelations associated with the pork barrel scam with which he was allegedly involved. Instead, he revealed a "thank you" list to friends, family, supporters and God, and topped it off with a music video where he sang, "Thank you friends. I will never forget you. If this is my fate, I still believe in the truth," Rappler reports.
