That is what the great Senator Mike Duffy, Kanata-PEI, wanted. Big time.
Why for you ask? Coz you get a car and a driver. Canna be driving when you are pinned 24/7, right?
"Six months after he was appointed to the Senate, Mike Duffy was in consultations with Conservatives about an expanded role in the party and expectations of increased compensation, including his own suggestion he be named a minister without portfolio to get a car and staff, according to an email exchange obtained by CBC News."
Greedy bastard, eh?
