article imageOntario Liberals claim Hudak billed taxpayers $576 for TV, coffee

Toronto - With the Ontario provincial election one year away, the Liberals are releasing attack ads on the Conservatives. A news release claims that Conservative leader, Tim Hudak, charged the taxpayers for a $575 television set and others.
Expect the Ontario Legislature at Queen’s Park in downtown Toronto to be filled with loud voices, outlandish accusations and pure rage because as the municipal election winds down, Ontario politicians are already getting prepared with next year’s provincial election.
One of the first attack ads of the election season comes from the provincial Liberals where they accuse Conservative Party leader Tim Hudak of being a “Nickel & Dime Addict.”
According to a news release from the Liberal Caucus Service Bureau, the Conservative Party leader charged a lot of day-to-day expenses to the Ontario taxpayers: “Tim Hudak, like the rest of the Conservative gang, isn't shy about getting taxpayers to pay for anything he wants,” writes the Liberals. “The fact is, there isn't much Hudak hasn't tried to expense.”
On Dec. 5, 2002, Hudak charged the taxpayers $575 for a television set from Future Shop. The following day, Hudak billed the taxpayers for a trip to Brazil and also brought his girlfriend. Once in Brazil, he and his girlfriend spent $3.20 of taxpayer money on chicken McNuggets.
Last year, Hudak spent $87.40 of taxpayer money on a dinner at Jack Astor’s where he took out Member of Provincial Parliament Lisa MacLeod and spent $92.13 with his staff at Don Cherry’s restaurant.
In Nov. 2009, Hudak put a $1.27 coffee on the taxpayers’ bill.
“Like his old friends Chris Stockwell and Cam Jackson, Tim Hudak shows all the signs of a classic Conservative expense account addiction.”
