Controversy may be mounting around the now independent senator Mike Duffy but as far as Prime Minister Stephen Harper is concerned, his chief of staff Nigel Wright still has his full confidence. There is no word on whether Wright offered his resignation but it’s great to know that a scandal that acts to orchestrate a cover up of a senator’s wrong doing is fine by “tough on crime” PM Harper.

Last night, CTV News broke the story revealing Conservative senator Mike Duffy’s repayment of fraudulent housing allowance claims was orchestrated by the PMO. Up to date, we learn Stephen Harper’s chief of staff Nigel Wright personally paid Duffy $90,172 to cover for the housing¬†allowance¬†repayment. Senate rules reveal the gift may have broken conflict of interest rules while the PMO defends the action.

According to private emails extracted by CTV News, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff Nigel Wright and Conservative Senator Mike Duffy made a secret deal during the audit to repay $90,172 in fraudulent housing expenses. The intent was to calm public outrage over the abuses of taxpayers’ money but has only raised more questions in a scandal that continues to dig deeper into the Harper government’s integrity.

The Conservatives are sending public servants emails linking them to the Canada’s Economic Action Plan website and a survey which asks who they will vote for in the next election. The Union of National Defense Employees demands answer and Canadians deserve an explanation as more than $100 million in taxpayer money has been spent on propaganda while unemployment is still an issue.
