Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff Nigel Wright wrote a personal cheque worth more than $90,000 to pay back Senator Mike Duffy’s living expenses, Harper’s office confirmed Wednesday.
“Mr. Duffy agreed to repay the expenses because it was the right thing to do. However, Mr. Duffy was unable to make a timely repayment. Mr. Wright therefore wrote a cheque from his personal account for the full amount owing so that Mr.Duffy could repay the outstanding amount,” Harper’s spokesman Andrew MacDougall said in a statement.
The right thing to do. Yeah, right. Garbage in, garbage out. Mike “Parasite” Duffy tried to line his pockets.
