Political Career
Beningo Aquino was no stranger to Philippine politics. He came from a family that had been involved with some of the country's political heavyweights. His grandfather served under President Aguinaldo, while his father held office under Presidents Quezon and Laurel.
President Marcos, who came to power by uniting the votes from both the north and the south, by his 11-day courtship and marriage to a Romualdez thought as a political gambit, was outraged. He called Aquino "a congenital liar". The First Lady's friends angrily accused Aquino of being "ungallant". These so-called "fiscalisation" tactics of Aquino quickly became his trademark in the Senate.
