The Duffy debacle continues
Oct 8, 2013 / 11:18 am
The RCMP is alleging that Sen. Mike Duffy awarded $65,000 in contracts to a friend who did little tangible work — the latest wrinkle in the case against the former Conservative.
The Mounties filed a production order in an Ottawa court to gain access to bank account records related to the allegation.
Between 2009 and 2012, Senate documents obtained by police show that Duffy employed former TV colleague Gerald Donahue to do writing, media monitoring and consulting.
But Donahue told police that he didn't do any writing, and never produced any tangible document, report or work product.
The RCMP points out that Donahue was a TV technician until 1997, with no consulting experience.
The Mounties are also seeking bank records for Sen. Patrick Brazeau, another former member of the Conservative caucus, in connection with disallowed housing claims.
