Ousted on January 20 2001 as Philippine President in a bloodless people's revolt that came to be known as Edsa II. The revolution was sparked by the accusation of his close buddy, Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson on October of 2000 that he was receiving bribe money from illegal gambling.
He often played heroes of the downtrodden classes, which gained him the admiration of a lot of the nation's many unschooled and impoverished citizens. This later proved advantageous to his political career.
Was expelled from Ateneo de Manila University for defending a classmate being bullied by a foreigner. He later enrolled in an engineering course at Mapua Institute of Technology, eventually dropping out to pursue acting.

He ended up losing his bid for mayor to Dr. Braulio Sto. Domingo in 1968. He was only proclaimed mayor in 1969, after winning an electoral protest against Sto. Domingo.
