The following is a letter TISG received on former Member of Parliament (MP) for Bukit Batok (David Ong)

Letter by: Leong S Y
I saw the pictures circulating in the internet and realise that I know Wendy Lim and her husband. Ms Wendy Lim and her husband all actively supported MP David Ong in GE2015. Even if we forgive David Ong for the affair, we should not forgive him for wrecking a family.
MPs of both Workers’ Party (WP) and PAP (People’s Action Party) have had affairs in the past. WP’s Yaw Shin Leong allegedly had an affair with a married Chinese national who had assisted him with translation work, while Michael Palmer’s affair was with Ms Laura Ong, constituency director of Pasir Ris West Constituency Office. Both men had affairs with women who were single.
But David Ong had an affair with a married woman who is the mother of 3 children. He is a traitor who used his supporter’s trust to take advantage of his wife. I am not sure if the husband pleaded with David Ong to end his relationship with Wendy Lim and let his wife go, but it is not unbelievable that he did so before going to the media about the affair.
David Ong is a Christian and I am surprised that he can do this kind of despicable thing with a married woman with children. How can the PAP field such a heartless candidate?
David Ong is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. How are Singaporeans to trust any candidate the PAP fields in the future?
