If Duffy’s guilty, send him a message

The only way to know about the rest of the senate is to do a forensic review

To the editor;

Regarding Senator Mike Duffy.

If Senator Mike Duffy is guilty of what he’s been accused of and, if he’s been doling out taxpayers’ money from a slush fund to whomever, then he better not be left with a taxpayer-funded pension at the end of the day.

If he’s guilty of misappropriating the taxpayers’ money for his private and personal use, let’s hope the full letter of the law will rain down heavy on Duffy.

If he’s guilty, Canadians need to see he is made an example of in what not do with the taxpayers’ money when you are in the Senate.

Anyone disagree?

If he’s guilty, send him the message.

It does make one wonder, though, whether this is just an isolated case within the Senate.

The only way to know is to do a forensic review as a measure of goodwill on behalf of Canadian taxpayers.

Shake the Senate tree and see what falls out.
