I know the Mike Duffy trial seems like ancient history now, and I can hardly remember the details of the case.
Except that the wrong man was put on trial. The Harper PMO, and its morally depraved leader, were able to elude the
And although Duffy won, he also lost, and almost had to be carried out feet first.
But despite my disappointment that Boss Harper wasn't jailed, I almost never doubted that Ol' Duff would rise again.
And sure enough he's back!!!
Sen. Mike Duffy is taking legal action against the Senate and the federal government, seeking nearly $8 million in damages. The suit seeks $6.5 million in general damages, $300,000 for loss of income and benefits and $1 million in punitive damages relating to the treatment Duffy faced during the Senate expenses scandal.
And I don't think Stephen Harper is going to be very happy.
"The Harper Conservatives have left me with no choice but to go back to the courts for justice," Duffy said.
For it seems to me that Duffy is out for REVENGE!!
And I'm pretty sure the RCMP isn't happy either.
"The message to the RCMP is: the guy you charged should have never been charged ... and you ruined his life. It's time to try and make Mike Duffy whole," Lawrence Greenspon, Duffy's lawyer, told reporters Thursday.
Because making Mikey whole sounds REALLY expensive eh?
And we're paying for it dammnit !!#@!
As for Nigel Wright, who picked up the tab the last time, he can't be too happy either...
For the proceedings will only have people wondering again how DID that old religious fanatic escape prosecution?
And what did "good to go" REALLY mean?
But the good news is that although Harper isn't named in the lawsuit, it will serve to remind Canadians of what his monstrous regime did to this country, during the so-called Decade of Darkness...
For it sometimes seems to me that too many Canadians have forgotten what a nightmare it was.
They need to be reminded about how it almost killed our Canada.
And that if you let things slide down the memory hole....
Those who don't learn from the past are condemned to repeat it.
But the best news is that all of the above is really BAD news for Andrew Scheer.
Because the last thing The Creeper needs is more bad publicity...
And I can't imagine how he's going to be able to whip up hatred against Justin Trudeau for giving Omar Khadr $10 million, while complaining about Trudeau giving the Con Senator Mike Duffy $8 million.
When in both cases the Harper regime, the one Scheer served so faithfully, was entirely to blame.
So good luck with that one.
Yup, stay tuned folks, it's going to be fun.
Ol' Duff is back.
And the Con soap opera continues...
