CBC's Kady O'Malley sums up the Duffy audit/expense controversy quite nicely.
Why did Stephen Harper's chief of staff, Nigel Wright, cut a personal cheque to repay Senator Mike Duffy's controversial living expenses? Are all the Senators implicated in this controversy being treated equally in the process – or are the cases of Duffy and Pamela Wallin being handled differently from those of Mac Harb and Patrick Brazeau (who have both left their party caucuses and are suing over the issue of their committee-ordered repayments)? Why are any legal opinions on the residency question still not public? And if there is real expense fraud happening here, what's with all the fudging around who's job it was to call in the Mounties?
I had forgotten all about Pam Wallin, had you? According to CTV's Bob Fife, it sounds as though Duffy did himself in by blabbering to all and sundry in Ottawa that Nigel Wright had covered the repayment, that the Harper PMO ordered him to not cooperate with the Deloitte auditors and that he was promised the government would go easy on him.
Isn't it hilarious when you watch an arrogant, privileged, fat little shit set fire to himself?
