Two Senators are denying a recently published report about an alleged twist in the expense scandal involving their colleague Mike Duffy and Prime Minister Harper’s former chief of staff.
According to CTV News, Conservatives David Tkachuk and Carolyn Stewart Olsen persuaded Duffy to conceal details of the $ 90,000 dollar cheque he received from Nigel Wright.
Both Tkachuk and Stewart Olsen call the news report false.
Tkachuk’s office calls the report a complete fabrication and states that the conversations described did not occur.
Both senators are members of the committee that reviews fellow senators’ expense claims.
