The Mike Duffy Scandal As Explained By "Game Of Thrones" GIFs
It's a Red Chamber Wedding. (Spoilers and/or winter ahead.)
Confused about this whole scandal involving Mike Duffy? The gang from Westeros is here to help.
In 2008 Stephen Harper appointed CTV newsman Mike Duffy to represent Prince Edward Island in the Senate.
Except Duffy had actually lived in Ottawa for many years.
Then Duffy claimed his P.E.I. property was his full-time residence — even though a caretaker said it was pretty much unusable in the winter.
That way he could claim housing expenses for when he stayed in Ottawa — despite already owning a home there. Housing expenses are supposed to help Senators rent somewhere in Ottawa so they can get to work.
