(UPDATE) Broadcaster Raffy Tulfo on Saturday filed his certificate of candidacy for senator, seeking to translate his popularity as the Filipino masses' court of last resort into a seat in the legislature.

Tulfo puts to task almost anyone from cheating lovers to scammers to slow-to-act government officials for his 21.7 million YouTube subscribers and 18.4 million Facebook followers to see. He quit his TV program on Friday.
