There was a stunning allegation today in the senate about a second payment related to Senator, Mike Duffy’s ongoing expense scandal.
Duffy says Conservative party lawyer Arthur Hamilton was involved in a scheme to cover his more than 13-thousand dollar legal bill.
The second payment is in addition to the original 90-thousand dollar cheque from Nigel Wright the Prime Minister’s former chief of staff.
Reports of that cheque touched off the current controversy over Duffy’s expenses.
Duffy says the payments were part of an elaborate plan orchestrated by the Prime Minister’s Office to make the controversy over his expenses go away.
Duffy says he was well within the rules in filing his expenses and that the true amount of claims that were in violation of the rules totaled less than 500-dollars.
