The National post is reporting today that the RCMP has formally charged Senator Patrick Brazeau and former senator Mac Harb with breach of trust and fraud.
The RCMP reportedly held a news conference this morning at which it announced that criminal code charges had been laid.
There may be other charges to come as the reports says the RCMP is also investigating Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin over their expenses as senators.
It is very sad on several levels to see things come to this, but if you do the crime, you’d better be prepared to do the time, as they say.
It’s important to remember, though, that none of these charges have been proven in court.
