Audit of Senator Pamela Wallin’s travel expenses may hold wider implications for red chamber | National Post
Shouldn't she be going to jail?
As you know, I’ve been in the public eye for a long time. This means I get a huge number of invitations to take part in events across Canada.

we have been ripped off by people in high places as long as I can remember, just reminds me of how we
have to pay more for goods because of shoplifters, well, how is this any different, as i'm sure taxes
are too high, to replace all of the public monies stolen by those who we should be trusting, but
so more sensationalist bullshyte from jlm.
he's actually as bad as the politicians he is constantly whining about.
Some people don't read too well.................."Wallin’s travel bill totalled about $344,000 by the end of 2012, with the majority — about $314,000 — in “other travel,” which the Senate travel policy defines as any travel that doesn’t take a senator directly between their home province and the capital"
Anyway I was careful to cover my A$$ with "Looks like".
The actual number is yet unknown. The auditor's figures will be released tomorrow. I'm sure the numbers will be less than $300,000.00 but likely more than Wallin is hoping.
Wallin has already repaid something like $38,000.00. I don't think she should get off just because she paid the money back. Okay, let her have that first 38 grand repayment. If the auditors find yet another hundred grand or so, it should mean more than a slap on the wrist.
times they are a changing
she might be ordered to repay it...we should do that with all thieves and let them stay near the coffers
those days are gone my friend you thought they'd never end... toodle eeeeeeeeeeeeew biactch
I'm not bitter...lol
not yet, I jus' preparin' soall cause I'm gonna be super-sized pizzed when nothing happens and her fat azz rides off into the sunset waving adios suckers at us
This is a woman showing poor judgement, but then who put her in the red chamber?
The Prime Minister showed poor judgement in the appointments he made in the first
Duffy, Wallin and the list goes on. that is the Senate. Then there is the 15 dollar
orange juice lady he made a cabinet minister and she ain't the only one as the saying
goes. Now remember there is a difference here between Harper and the Liberals.
The Liberals did this over and never said it was not a good thing. Mr Harper made it
clear this was the end these things would not happen anymore and things are more
pronounced and to some degree worse.
Don't tell me things will be different by example show me they are different and that it is
not happening. The woman should be in Jail just like Duffy
You didn't cover anything. The more you post, and the more you back pedal, the more you look like the very politicians you claim to abhor.
actually, it stated that the cbc has learned that Wallin could be ordered to repay $100,000 plus.
Pamela Wallin's Senate expense repayments could top $100K - Politics - CBC News
Well, F.Y.I. on the noon news on Global T.V. a figure of $320,000 was mentioned, so it's not like I'm making it up!
Actually it doesn't matter if it's one dollar or a million, it's all stealing!
lol Not only should these sewer scum repay but for those who actually screw up while they're in office. they should cover the costs of the mess they cause. It'd be nice to get the $2 billion back for the freakin mess called the "Long Gun Registry" from the sewer scum who implemented it, for instance; with interest. Accountability? From bureaucrats and politicians? HAH!
Doesn't mean anything to them. Unless you are a Jimmy Pattison, David Thompson, Galen Weston, Lino Saputo, etc., your opinion means diddly.
IF, Global stated that she had stolen 320,000 like you have said about 300,000 then Global is as guilty as you.
Actually, it does matter if someone steals a dollar or if they steal a million. Different charges are laid.
The news is pretty careful about using words like "stolen", more like $320,000 being the amount investigated.
Here's a question for real:
Do you think they have any idea just how angry we have become over this... I am left, my guy is right and we are both livid... do they get that?
