CBC : Nigel Wright won't face charges over $90K payment to Mike Duffy
The RCMP has ended its probe into Nigel Wright...
Wright said in a statement to CBC News that he believed his actions were in the public interest and lawful.Quite the most brazen in self-serving nonsense -- the Senate certainly had no difficulty garnisheeing Senator Patrick Brazeau's wages in order to "secure the repayment of taxpayer funds".
"My intention was to secure the repayment of taxpayer funds," Wright said through his lawyer, Peter Mantas. He added that the RCMP's "detailed and thorough investigation has now upheld my position."
Presumably the RCMP could not show that Wright stood to personally benefit from paying off Duffy to shut him up, while Steve, on behalf of whom this charade was perpetrated, knew nothing at all about it .
Well played all round in the best democracy money can buy.
