  • Judge clears Mike Duffy of all charges and slams Prime Minister's Office under Harper
    probably any other Canadian in history he said Vaillancourt said Duffy s travel claims had no financial or sinister motive and no criminal intent the judge said He also concluded that payments made for third party services funnelled through his friend Gerald Donohue to pay for editorial services makeup and fitness training were all appropriate There was no evidence of kickbacks or altered invoices he added In a sharp rebuke to the Crown counsel he said lawyers limited their cross examination of Duffy after his many hours of witness testimony leaving much of that testimony unchallenged Supporting Duffy s living allowance claims in Prince Edward Island Vaillancourt said while the senator physically left the province to pursue professional opportunities he always maintained contacts in his birthplace and had secured his retirement home there Explicit advice Vaillancourt said Duffy took steps to ensure he met his constitutional residency requirements to sit as a P E I senator and that he was given explicit advice from then prime minister Stephen Harper that he was qualified This was not some minor bureaucratic official speaking It was the prime minister of Canada the judge told court Vaillancourt said Duffy took additional steps to ensure the property at 10 Friendly Lane in Cavendish met the residency requirements after a newspaper article was published raising questions about the issue He was assured by former Conservative government leader in the Senate Marjory LeBreton that the article in the Guardian was politically motivated He called Duffy s actions honest and reasonable and noted the senator also spent 100 000 to upgrade the P E I property LeBreton speaking on CBC News Network s Power Politics said the expense issues were a matter that could have been dealt with internally by the Senate but the story took a turn when it was revealed that Wright cut the cheque to cover the expenses I think it would be very unfair to assume that the whole prime minister s office was consumed by this including the Prime Minister himself because clearly he was not she told host Rosemary Barton I think it s unfair to taint the entire prime minister s office because of the actions of a few On pre signed travel expenses Recapping the charges related to travel expense claims Vaillancourt said Senate rules allow broad but not limitless discretion and found no sinister motive for Duffy to use pre signed forms He said Senate rules allow public parliamentary and partisan functions to be covered and also noted that Duffy was not in financial straits that might have served as a financial motive Vaillancourt also said there was never formal training on these travel expense policies leaving senators unreasonably to their own devices He also said most of Duffy s testimony related to the travel claims was not questioned by the Crown leaving it unchallenged Vaillancourt said Senate rules allow for a mix of personal and parliamentary business for travel expense claims as long as the trips do not

  • Must Republicans choose between Trump or chaos?
    Super Tuesday He got 39 per cent of the vote and 42 delegates so end of story right Sorry What really happened was that Trump got 39 per cent of the vote and 42 delegate slots Just the slots not the delegates There was another round of voting at the county level in Georgia this past weekend to fill those delegate slots that Trump won and guess what A number of the Trump slots went to Ted Cruz supporters instead Others still went to John Kasich s people All those delegates will vote for Trump on the first ballot but otherwise they ll vote for Kasich or Cruz if they get the chance They ll also vote on the rules that will govern the convention which might not help Trump either But it s all fair and square In fact it s the way delegates have been chosen for decades In the past though it didn t matter so much It was never that important who the delegates were because they weren t going to choose the nominee at the national convention They were only going to ratify a choice that had been engineered by the party establishment That s obviously not the case this time There s a real fight for the nomination and when Trump said nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting he meant delegates like those selected in Georgia on Saturday Call them Trump SINOs Supporters In Name Only SINO is a term coined by John Patrick Yob a Republican operative who s worked for Senators John McCain Rick Santorum and Rand Paul He s written a book called prophetically CHAOS The Outsiders Guide to a Contested Republican National Convention 2016 Unbound delegates Yob has been watching the Republican Party disintegrate since about 2010 when the Tea Party wave crashed down on it and then rolled on into Congress He anticipated that the Tea Party would soon mount a presidential campaign for a Sarah Palin like candidate He figured that would so destabilize the Republican Party that a contested convention would be inevitable Yob began to think about the mechanics of how the campaign would unfold and to imagine what the nominating convention would look like He imagined it would look like chaos He didn t add a self funding celebrity billionaire populist into the mix at first but as he writes that just adds to the chaos His book went to the printer days before the South Carolina primary in February It unpacks the rules of the caucuses primaries and conventions and ominously finds that in some of the most important areas whether delegates are truly bound to vote for a candidate for instance there really are no clear rules Chaos is what it claims to be A good guidebook to how and why the 2016 nomination campaign unraveled and where all the unraveling will lead Reading it you might think that if any of the
