Manila: Ten  years after the “Hello Garci”  controversy,  Senator  Grace Poe lamented that  almost none of those allegedly involved in the 2004 poll fraud had neither been charged nor spent a single  night  in  jail.

Taking the floor, Poe revived the 2004 poll fraud scandal, which she described as a “dark time in our nation’s history.”

The “Hello Garci” she was referring to was the alleged phone conversation between former President  and now Pampanga Representative  Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and  then  Commission on Elections commissioner  Virgilio Garcillano during the 2004 elections. The call was allegedly about a plot to rig the results of the election in some areas in Mindanao.
