The Prime Minister’s former Chief of Staff says he made mistakes but can stand behind everything he did.
It’s the first public comments made by Nigel Wright since he resigned on May 19th.
That’s after it was revealed he had written a personal cheque to cover 90-thousand dollars in wrongly claimed expense owed by Senator, Mike Duffy.
At the time Wright said he believed repaying the funds was in the public interest.
Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson has confirmed her office has launched an investigation into Wright’s cheque to Duffy under the Conflict of Interest Act.
Duffy quit the Conservative caucus following the controversy, though he is still a senator and has said he believes he will eventually be exonerated.
