So, the RCMP are calling the payment between Nigel Wright and Mike Duffy a “bribe” and “breach of trust.” No charges yet. How come there are no charges from the Crown prosecutor? The justice system shouldn’t wait until there is an angry protest 24/7 outside of the PMO before they enforce the law once they’ve discovered evidence of serious crime.
READING INTERNAL PMO EMAILS RENDERS ME A LITTLE GODDAMNED CYNICAL, YOU GUYS

Listen to a Harper Minister clearly state that Ministers are responsible for the actions of their staff. Wright bribed Duffy, and Harper is responsible, whether he knew or not. It’s just icing on the cake for his opponents if he knew and lied to Parliament when he clearly claimed he didn’t know.
Police allege that Wright says PM was informed “in broad terms” abt his personal assistance to Duffy. What exactly were those broad terms? — Ralph Goodale (@RalphGoodale) November 20, 2013
It didn’t stay that way: Wright said to PMO staffer, “For you only: I am personally covering Duffy’s $90K” #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/xqWaIErJPO — Stuart A. Thompson (@stuartathompson) November 20, 2013
To be clear, new ITO shows PMO wasn’t just jury-rigging Senate report — they tried to shape the actual Deloitte audit. Amazing.

Since mid-May I’ve been referring to the payoff of Duffy as a “bribe“. Glad to see the RCMP caught up to my understanding of what’s in the news.
