In a GMA News Online report published on September 26, 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte was asked to comment on Senator Leila de Lima's sarcastic remark about him wanting her.

It may be recalled that De Lima had made the remark in exasperation, as she felt that Duterte and his allies were picking on her. She had said, "Naawa na po ako sa inyo mahal na Pangulo, tigilan na ninyo ako. Ano po ang gusto ninyo sa akin? May gusto po ba kayo sa akin?"

("I pity you, our beloved president, stop picking on me. What do you want from me? Do you want me?")

When reporters asked Duterte for a response to De Lima's statement, he replied, "Alam mo everytime I view the video, I lose my appetite."

("You know, every time I view the video, I lose my appetite.")

Duterte allies like House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and Justice chief Vitaliano Aguirre II have also made repeated references to the so-called sex video.

Now, another Duterte's ally, Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III is saying something else.

In another GMA News Online report published on Tuesday, October 4, Pimentel was quoted saying, "Actually, I believe that there is no video. There is no actual video. Some have shown me a video but it does not involve any member of the Senate. It is a sex video but it does not involve a member of the Senate."

So, is that the end of it?

In the event that the sex video threat comes up again, De Lima can, perhaps, take comfort in the fact that "sisters" in the Senate have got her back.

Rappler earlier reported that Senators Risa Hontiveros, Grace Poe, Nancy Binay, Cynthia Villar, and Loren Legarda have filed Senate Resolution No. 184 condemning the House plan against their colleague.
