Re-elected Camarines Norte Governor Edgardo Tallado was suspended for six months by the Ombudsman for disgraceful and immoral conduct over a sex tape with his mistress that was leaked to the internet.

In a decision signed by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales on Aug. 8, the office found Tallado guilty of the administrative offense of disgraceful and immoral conduct.

“Wherefore, judgement is rendered finding respondent Edgardo Tallado administratively liable for disgraceful and immoral conduct for which he is meted with penalty of six months suspension and one day without pay,” the Ombudsman said.

The Ombudsman ordered the Interior Secretary to implement the suspension order.

Tallado’s sex tape scandal started when his wife Josie went missing for 15 days only to surface again blowing the lid on the scandal.

The governor had first sought the help of government authorities in locating his wife, who he said drove his staff member to their house before both of them disappeared on Oct. 17 last year.

When she surfaced five days later, Josie Tallado said she escaped because her husband held her in house arrest and cut all her communications. She said she discovered a sex video of her husband, who got mad and accused her of uploading the video on the internet.

Governor Tallado has since apologized for the video, appealing to his detractors not to use it against him because it had nothing to do with his work.
