One Wright, too many wrongs

Mike Duffy and the Senate scandal captures the attention of regular letter writer.

To the Editor,

One Wright doesn’t make up for Mike Duffy’s litany of wrongs.

Nigel Wright, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff, had enough integrity to resign for his ethical blundering. Duffy, the devious recipient of Wright’s $90,000 hush-money payment, doesn’t have an ounce of integrity but certainly has pounds and pounds of gall.

If there are any untainted senators left in the Red Chamber, they should stand up in unison and boo Mr. Duffy if he dares put a foot inside their so-called chamber of sober second thought.

To do otherwise is to cowardly condone liars and fraudsters.

This sordid affair highlights Stephen Harper’s empty promise to run an honest and accountable government. Mister Harper is a Conservative emperor without any clothes.

Lloyd Atkins,

Vernon
