It was a late night in the Senate as debate continued over a motion to expel Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau.  There were some heated moments a moment when long time independent Toronto Senator Anne Cools asked former Senate leader Marjory LeBreton if Senators would be meeting again today.  “I think this is a greater shame what’s happening here,” Cools explained, “I think what’s going on here is a terrible scandal.  You’re ruining people’s lives.  This is a disgrace. This is the Senate of Canada.”

A rare Friday sitting of the senate begins at 9 o’clock this morning.  The debate got personal yesterday with a war of words between Marjory LeBreton and Mike Duffy.  LeBreton issued a stinging rebuttal of Duffy’s accusation that she was part of a conspiracy into persuading him to accept a secret deal to pay back ineligible expenses.  She called it a blatant falsehood that is “utterly preposterous.”  LeBreton also says she was never a fan of Duffy when he was a television personality.

Duffy and Brazeau, along with former Liberal senator Mac Harb, are under investigation by the RC-M-P for allegedly fraudulently claiming Senate housing allowances and living expenses.
