Senate Scandal

We learned today the RCMP have dropped the charges against the Prime Minister's former Chief of Staff Nigel Wright for writing a $90,000 cheque to suspended Senator Mike Duffy. The RCMP concluded the evidence they gathered was insufficient to support criminal charges against Mr. Wright.

So one person alleged to be involved in the Conservative Senate scandal has been cleared. It will be interesting if the others named in the Senate scandal will be cleared as well. Was it all just a forgivable mistake? I am very interested in the final outcome and I suspect Canadians are too.
