Things have been heating up in the Canadian Senate.
Two days ago, Senator Mike Duffy made a riveting speech. He accused the Prime Minister and some other senators of bullying him into paying $90,000 back to the government when he didn’t think he should have to.
His accusations were part of a dramatic speech.
“The sad truth is, I allowed myself to be intimidated into doing what I knew in my heart was wrong, out of a fear of losing my job,” Duffy said in his speech.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has defended himself against the accusations.
Then yesterday another senator, Pamela Wallin, made a heated speech in the Senate. She accused 14 senators of leaking information about her.
It’s all part of a growing “senate scandal.”
