Raul Roco - The Wife Beater (?)

"I admit I don't personally know the Rocos. But I have talked to people who know them very well. I have talked to Roco's close relative who said that indeed the former senator and education secretary would beat up his wife during a spat... A couple of years ago, Sonia ran away from home and went to Baguio after she was reportedly beaten black and blue by Raul."

Don't you like election time when follies of candidates (public and private) are brought out in the open?

I had a chance to see him show a bit of his temper (that was on TV during the impeachment hearings). Based on that one instance, albeit justifiable at the time, the article may have a bit of truth in it.
