The Office Of The Prime Minister Of Canada Encouraged Senator Duffy To Lie About The Source Of The $90,000 And Coached Him On What To Say To The Media

"An e-mail has surfaced that shows the Prime Minister’s Office offered Senator Mike Duffy communications advice just days before he told Canadians he’d repaid questionable expense claims out of his own pocket.

It will fuel the controversy over recent allegations by Mr. Duffy – now suspended from the Senate – that the PMO told him to lie to Canadians about the source of the $90,000 used to reimburse taxpayers for controversial expenses.

The money had in fact come secretly from former PMO chief of staff Nigel Wright, a fact that was kept hidden from Canadians until mid-May when news broke of the arrangement designed to make a public fuss over the expense claims disappear.

Fighting a suspension motion last week, Mr. Duffy alleged that the PMO advised him to tell the public he’d obtained the $90,000 through a loan from the Royal Bank.

It was back on Feb. 22 that the PEI senator first announced to Canadians he would “voluntarily pay back my living expenses related to the house we have in Ottawa.”

An e-mail obtained by CTV News shows that on Feb. 20, two days before the repayment announcement, senior PMO officials approached Mr. Duffy to help him explain things.

The electronic message, sent to Mr. Duffy from his lawyer Janice Payne, informs him she’s been contacted by a PMO lawyer who works for Mr. Wright.

The Prime Minister’s Office names two PMO staffers who are standing by to craft messages for Mr. Duffy. “Chris Woodcock of his office and Patrick Rogers are communications specialists – very talented and happy to work with you to develop various strategies around communications,” Ms. Payne wrote in the e-mail to Mr. Duffy.

Like the members of "Ford Nation", no matter how dirty their guy is, they are fully supportive. The "Get tough on Crime" folks are only for getting tough when it involves someone else's crimes. Hypocrisy, thy name is "Conservative."

Harper was Policy Chief for his, Northern Foundation of 1989. Nothing Harper does is of, any surprise to most of us. Harper is a Dictator and a control freak. Harper controls absolutely everything. Of course Harper would tell Duffy to lie.

Harper tried a cover-up for his Senators first. When that didn't work? Harper cut their throats, to save his own miserable hide.

How can anyone with, self respect, decency, honor, ethics and morals, could ever support a monster such as Harper?

Other Senators and Ministers say? Nigel Wright is a most honorable person. Why then is he, one of Harper's, so called Conservatives? There is no honor in that.
