I’ve held off commenting on this top story in Canada since it’s just so boring. We have two former media people, both of the taxpayer funded CBC, who have become 220;senators”, and are now facing their ouster.
They moved from one acting ring to another, so we know they are professionals at the game.
I am not sure of the endgame. The scandals are so minor that one cannot see the outrage. The dollar amounts are all occultic, indicating the whole story is fabricated to distract or draw attention to a Senate that no-one wants, or do they?
This story isn’t gaining any traction with the humans of Canada – so I suppose we have to wait to see how this farce plays out and what the result will be.
Sen. Mike Duffy told a spellbound upper chamber Monday that the prime minister’s former chief of staff, who paid him $90,000 to cover his housing expenses, had also arranged a second cheque to pay his legal bills.
With the Senate in an unusual Monday sitting to discuss punishment for Duffy and two other senators over spending irregularities, Duffy said the Prime Minister’s Office had directed its lawyer, Arthur Hamilton, to have his legal bills paid, amounting to $13,560.
