It seems the operators of Luigi Quisumbing miscalculated the reaction of Danny Sinugbuhan and his followers when Adi Sitoy would finally reveal his true colors. The Luigi camp should have waited sooner and thus prevent Sinugbuhan from striking a deal with the camp of Nerissa Soon-Ruiz.
Sitoy could have even just placed stickers silently on his sample ballots. But then, both Sitoy and Luigi revealed their hands during a campaign caravan. They wrongly thoughjt it would bring in more votes.
As events unfolded, Quisumbing lost in Cordova town when the original plan was to use the two local warring camps.
This contributed to his deafeat against Iuay Neri.
