Duffy hosted CBC show in PEI while claiming expenses in Ottawa, files show

 On a day he claimed expenses for working as a senator in Ottawa, Mike Duffy was co-host of a CBC political panel covering the Prince Edward Island provincial election, the Globe and Mail reports.
An analysis of the PEI senator’s living expenses by the Senate revealed Tuesday night that Mr. Duffy claimed the Ottawa expenses on a day external auditors had earlier found that he was in PEI. Mr. Duffy had returned to the province the weekend before the election and remained there until Oct. 3, 2011 – the day Islanders gave the provincial Liberals another majority government. He was in studio that night, a CBC spokesman confirmed.
The whole sordid tale!

This is almost comical. Or is he just a hard worker?
