Can Gwen be suspended sans violating Constitution?
HOUSE Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez intends to defy the Office of the Ombudsman’s order to dismiss Deputy Speaker Gwen Garcia for grave misconduct.
Alvarez said that enforcing the dismissal order would be unconstitutional since it is not within the power of the Ombudsman to suspend or remove any member of Congress.
Can the Ombudsman order the dismissal of a House member without violating the Constitution? If Garcia allegedly committed the offense when she was the governor, can she still be dismissed now as a congresswoman?
