How Long Will This Continue?

Patrick Brazeau continues to court corruption suspicion

The sad and frustrating tale of Patrick Brazeau's appointment to the Senate continued today, as Brazeau topped off some extremely disquieting allegations regarding internal corruption at the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples by hiring two embattled CAP employees to his staff.

Today the Globe and Mail reported that Lorraine Foreman and Al Fleming have been hired as aides to the recently sworn-in senator.

Foreman and Fleming were both accused of drinking on the job in a complaint filed against the CAP by a former employee.

According to the Globe and Mail numerous CAP employees have confirmed the characterization of Foreman and Fleming.

Previous complaints against the Senator involved a sexual harassment case, the questionable suspension of the CAP's Manitoba director, and up to $260,000 in misspent funds.

With Brazeau continuing to pile up disturbing allegations and extremely questionable moves, one can't help but wonder how long it will be before the Conservative Senate caucus finally steps in and suspends Brazeau until these matters are dealt with decisively.

Hopefully, it will be sooner rather than later.
