Isko Moreno was a film actor who starred in several sexy films in the 1990s and is best known as one of Manila’s most promising young politicians. His unique success story was featured in ABS-CBN’s Maalala Mo Kaya, with Danilo Barrios playing his character. Once a street child and a cart-pushing scavenger of old newspapers and bottles, Isko entered the glittery life of Philippine show business that brought him wealth and fame. He left acting to penetrate the even more complicated world of politics as a councilor of the 1st District of Manila. In this year’s mid-term elections, Isko is vying for the vice mayoral post and (as far as I know) is the most likely to win. No wonder why his opponents would even play dirty (as usual) by making campaign paraphernalia out of his old pictures – a desperate attempt to defame the young politician.
