Duffy's Day of Reckoning - Thursday

Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets. The Cavendish Cottager, senator for Prince Edward Island, Mike Duffy, has a date with the judge on Thursday, April 21, to receive the verdicts on 31 counts of fraud, breach of trust and bribery.

It seems the main count - the stupendous "immaculate bribery" charge - is going nowhere. The Crown pretty much ignored the matter in its closing arguments. Without that the case comes down mainly to alleged "hand in the cookie jar" offences. Did Duffy raid the senatorial petty cash? Are the rules just too vague and omission riddled to ground criminal liability?

I guess we'll have all the answers on Thursday, Duffy's Date with Destiny.

Not guilty on all charges. Alas. But just a low life grifter ... the real crooks (Nigel and Stephen) not even charged.
