article imageCanadian RCMP expand Senator Mike Duffy 'breach of trust' probe

By Marcus Hondro     Jun 20, 2013 in Politics
Ottawa - It seems the RCMP expanded their probe into Conservative Senator Mike Duffy. Documents obtained by media today show investigators seized campaign records of 12 Conservative party candidates, all of whom Mr. Duffy helped during the last federal election.
Duffy, 67, is under investigation for expense claims by the RCMP Sensitive and International Investigations unit. Multiple media sites are reporting that it appears they are investigating the embattled senator under laws pertaining to breach of trust. Documents filed by the force with an Ottawa court, and now obtainable, have revealed the information today.
The probe has been called 'Project Amble' by the RCMP.
The documents show investigators are looking into expense claims Mr. Duffy made for campaign work for, among others, Conservative MPs Scott Armstrong, John Carmichael, Gerald Keddy, Greg Kerr, Wladyslaw Lizon, Rodney Weston and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver.
Mr. Duffy has already been suspected of billing both Conservative candidates campaigns and the Senate on the same day. His initial problems began when it was discovered he made false residency claims, saying a cabin he owns in P.E.I., one inaccessible in winter and which he but rarely visits, was his principal residency.
Mr. Duffy and his wife live in Ottawa.
The RCMP are also looking into expense claims made by Mac Harb and Pamela Wallin. The Liberal Harb and Wallin and Duffy, Conservatives, have all resigned from their parties caucuses during their respective investigations.
