It bugs me that the idea of government coffers being bottomless seems to prevail among elected officials, government employees and government contractors alike. As soon as you say "government" people start thinking "easy money".

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
place.
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

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

definitely cannot.

You got that right, Talloola. Actually as far as problems in our entire system go, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Stealing is one thing, but stealing when you are not in need is something altogether different. If you are an alcoholic down on your luck and broke and steal $1 for a beer, you go to jail. If you are a millionaire and steal $1/4 million you might hear the off tsk, tsk. The system is rotten right from stem to gudgeon.

The word "politics" is derived from the latin "poly", meaning "many", and "tic", a bloodsucking parasite.

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?

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.

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

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.

Can't blame just Harper for her. For some reason her constituents chose to re-elect her in 2011 even though she had had several scandals already.

$300,000 falls into the category of $100,000 plus!

Doubt it. Or maybe they do and are working on ways to divide and conquer. That usually works unfortunately. Shift the blame to the other guy.

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!

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.

Yes, not going to happen in my life time.

It's upsetting; they work for us, we pay them and they steal from us with no compunction and we have no recourse. Maybe this time it will be different. I still hold out a little bit of hope...just a ray.

The news is pretty careful about using words like "stolen", more like $320,000 being the amount investigated.

You're right, there is a difference in the criminal code, it's the moral code I go by.-

and there is a big difference between accusing someone of stealing, like you did, and saying that there is an investigation.

The real burning question is..........................If they did do you think they care?

I never accused anyone of anything, I was just passing on the news. If you don't think repaying $38,000 means anything then you are naïve.
