Kelly McParland: Liberal spending practices make Mike Duffy look like an amateur

Poor Mike Duffy must be kicking himself.

The former Conservative senator endured a national shaming when it was discovered he’d been expensing meals in his home in Ottawa while claiming his “real” home was in Prince Edward Island. Though a court ultimately decided his actions weren’t criminal, the episode had to hurt. And all over a measly $90,000. Now he discovers that if only he’d signed on with the Liberals instead of the Tories, he could have sold the shack in P.E.I., pocketed the cash and charged taxpayers a couple hundred thousand to move his stuff to Ottawa.
