Duffy tries extortion to get Conservatives to drop suspension motion

If you want to know why Mike Duffy just didn’t go to the RCMP with his allegations today (see here), check out this from CTV’s Mercedes Stephenson:

Extortion: 346. (1) Every one commits extortion who, without reasonable justification or excuse and with intent to obtain anything, by threats, accusations, menaces or violence induces or attempts to induce any person, whether or not he is the person threatened, accused or menaced or to whom violence is shown, to do anything or cause anything to be done.

    If there is a modicum of truth to what Duffy is saying, it goes to show you how stupid the PMO was in all this. To try and cover up this whole $90,000 cheque and then the legal bills just to protect Duffy and really the Party, thinking that it would end there, is ridiculous. It’s like that old saying, “oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive”. If they would have let the chips fall, we wouldn’t be here today. Duffy would be lashing out at the Senate about due process, not trotting out copies of cheques and e-mails.

      The emails Duffy released today made it sound like Wright really was on his side, in a personal way.
      Perhaps Wright didn’t disclose that he bailed Duffy out, so as Duffy wouldn’t be embarrassed about his ‘in the poor house’ situation….?

      Canadians were paid back close to $500,000 and the Senate has been forced to reform from within. So it is messy, but there is some good not being told.

    GOSH! THE WHOLE THING STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN. I AM MORE ANGRY WITH WALLIN , A SASKATCHEWAN GIRL, WE WERE TOLD, WHO, AS IT TURNS OUT WAS TORONTOIZED AND OTTAWAISED YEARS AND YEARS AGO, YET WHO POSED FOR THE SENATE AS A RED BLOODED SASKATCHEWANIAN. AND SPUD ISLANDER FOLK, DUFFY,DID SIMILARLY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. AND BRAZEAU IS A LIAR. GRANTED, THE “DUFFINATOR” HAD CONSERVATIVE CREDENTIALS AT FIRST (ALTHOUGH A CAREER CTV MAN). BUT, THE “TROUGH” WAS TOO ALLURING. I WISH I COULD BE IN THE DRAW TO PICK WHO CHUCKS HIM OVERBOARD. WHAT A SCANDAL. (NOT AS BAD, LIKELY, AS THE MEDIA PARTY WANTS, BUT VERY BAD FOR US JUST THE SAME).AND HARPER SHOWED POOR JUDGEMENT. I’LL ALLOW FOR HIS LOYALTY, BUT THAT IS WHERE IT ENDS.

    That train has left the station Duffy.
    May 14 Duffy sent CTV an email saying the Royal Bank loan (paid the Senate expenses) and Nigel had no part in it.
    May 15 Fife reported Nigel Wright paid Duffy’s expenses, and was confirmed by PM-O next day.
    Today Duffy says that ‘story’ about the Royal Bank was scripted by the PMO,
    in their defence an email was sent to Solomon, a May 15 email from PMO which seems to blow holes in Duffy’s story.

      Yesterday among the leftards, he had no credibility and was to not be taken at his word. Today, he is their darling and his word is gold.

      The truth does not matter to these trash; the only thing that does is destroying the Conservatives at any cost.

        How far Duffy has fallen from the self described “Old Duff” or the “Duffinator”. Instead of letting the Senate iron out what was misspent and taking steps to have it repaid we had to have the PMO running interference, trying to “help” the apparently poverty struck Senator. Now we are listening as the old Puff Ball blows enough wind to set a field of turbines on spin cycle and the Harper Conservative PMO and Harper himself are the bad guys.

        How did smart people make this terrible decision to help him by paying back money on his behalf and then get rewarded with this crap from a very unappreciative person? It’s down to the last strokes when everyone else is guilty but the ones who have been caught.

    Sad thing is ,I don’t care anymore,and actually have felt that way since Preston Manning was discarded and Steve decided to be a Cino/Rino up the middle type of guy. Face it,Duffy was appointed to the senate because he knifed Dion,someone was a native and someone was a woman. Harper had better pay attention to his base because many of us were only there because of the liberal party of thieves firearms persecution.There were /are many more issues to be addressed before I support this government again

    • BC Blue Says:

      Manning was hardly discarded

      • Bec Says:

        EXACTLY!! I was front and centre @ the majority party (in the cheap seats) and Manning WAS a guest of honour.

        I do hate these assumptions ALWAYS assumed. WE like facts people!

    • RJ65 Says:

      Duffy did not knife Dion. The story was from an Atlantic channel for CTV. It would have resulted in the same ending for Dion if Duffy had done his show on it or if Duffy had been on holiday during that time. Dion did this to himself.

    Well, it appears the 3 Senategate ‘victims’ have not won the hearts and minds of fellow Canadians.
    ‘..The Ipsos Reid poll conducted for CTV News (Oct 25-28) found that 73 per cent of respondents believe Senators Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau should be “immediately suspended from the Senate without pay.”

    Now if the PMO would only release afew more emails that clearly dispute Duffy’s claims, we can get back to real issues that matter.

    As entertaining as this media generated fiasco is, it should get even more entertaining when the AG starts naming the Liberal Senators that make up the majority of “questionable spenders” in this whole ridiculously over the top “scandal”. Something tells me the media won’t care one bit, unless of course the media can blame Liberal corruption on the PMO too. Funny that some people believe Senators “mis-spending” is something new, exclusive to the Conservatives, and the solution to this “brand new” corruption is to vote for the little boy that “leads” the trudeau party… now thats funny, tragic, but funny too.

    • wilson Says:

      Look at the story of Lib Sen Colin Kenny using his assistant to do his personal business 50% of the day…. 15 minutes in the media.
      And she wasn’t protected by parliamentary immunity, she made the statements in public!
      Perhaps the AG will interview her for his report, one can hope.

  7. wilson Says:

    As Anne on BLY posted to the effect,
    if this was some Nixonian coverup, why are there cheque stubs and hundreds of emails hanging around?
    Liberals knew how to do it right!
    Stuff envelopes with laundered taxpayers cash, hand it out to all your buddies.
    Conservatives, well, they write cheques to pay legal fees and return money to taxpayers,
    oh what a scandal, eh.
