His Finest Moment:The Corona Impeachment"I am not oblivious to the possible political repercussions of the final verdict we are called upon to render today. I am deeply concerned that the people may just so easily ignore, forget, if not completely miss out, the hard lessons we all must learn from this episode, instead of grow and mature as citizens of a democratic nation."

"Believe it or not?"
An old man with an "MILF"?In a statement, Enrile said in 1998, “What is totally false and malicious are the reports in the press and the rumor mills that the cause of our marital difficulties is an alleged relationship between me and my Chief of Staff, lawyer Gigi Reyes. There is no relationship, other than an official and professional one.”
Filipinos Riveted By Their Own News Of High-level Trysts
January 30, 1998
By Uli Schmetzer, Chicago Tribune Staff Writer.
MANILA — Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile's love life became headlines this week, giving Filipinos their own domestic version of what allegedly went on in the White House, the seat of power of their old colonial masters.
Enrile is not the president, but his alleged tryst with a top aide prompted his wife of 40 years to leave him this week with the public quip that she no longer could tolerate his chasing after other women, including domestic helpers, cooks and assistants.
"There may be no saints among us and I do not profess to be one. Yet, as it has been in all of human history, it is easy for sinners to cast stones."In her speech, Santiago quoted a January 1998 article on the Chicago Tribune that said Enrile's wife had walked out on him after charging adultery. She said Enrile's wife told the Tribune that she could no longer "tolerate his chasing after other women, including domestic helpers, cooks, and assistants.”
"Walang pinapatawad ito. Kaya ayaw kong tumatabi sa kanya baka ma-HIV ako," Santiago said.
"This is eyewitness testimony that Enrile is psychopathic and urgently needs treatment for his sex addiction. There is a sex addict in the Senate," she added.
Santiago also noted that Enrile appointed Reyes' husband, lawyer Rodolfo "Inky" Reyes, to be appointed to the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA). She said this was after Gigi Reyes had joined Enrile's law firm and were allegedly carrying out an affair.
"Sineduce niya yung babae ang lalaki pinadala niya sa malayo. E di naghiwalay," she said.
She also noted that Enrile "had the audacity to throw a birthday party at a five-star Makati hotel for his concubine, to which he was able to drag President Aquino."
The female senator said Gigi Reyes has already left the country after she was linked to the pork barrel scam. She said the Enrile camp issued a statement that only Gigi, not Enrile, should be accused of plunder.
"That is his version of tough love," she said.
"My advice to this old man is: Get a sex life!" she added.She added: "Let justice be done, though the heavens fall,though the world perish. This scandal will be one of the most bloodcurdling crimes in Philippine political history. It should be known as Enrilegate."
