-   Singson is known to have started EDSA II in October 2000 when he alleged he gave Philippine President Joseph Estrada 400 million pesos as payoff from illegal gambling profits. Estrada was put under investigation, but on January 16, 2001, a key piece of evidence was blocked in court, leading to protests in Manila and other major cities backing then vice president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo resulting in the ouster of Joseph Estrada.

-   First cousin Vincent "Bingbong" Crisologo was, at one time, his worst political enemy. Singson went through many violent and near-death encounters between the cousins, including the sensational arson and carnage in Barangay Ora Centro in May 1970 that put Bingbong behind bars.
