New employment opportunities for Canadian Senators?

Good Day Readers:

This just goes to show senators are not totally useless. Patrick Brazeau is managing a strip club. What about Colin Kenny as a pitchman?
Now, if the RCMP/Auditor General of Canada could only find alternative employment for Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy, Mac Harb et. al.

A preliminary report into a complaint of inappropriate behaviour by Senator Colin Kenny has uncovered new allegations, CTV News has learned.

Kenny left the Liberal caucus last November after a complaint was filed by a former staff member, who accused him of abuse of power and sexual harassment.

The massive report was done by outside investigators, who combed through hundreds of emails between Kenny and his former staffer.

The report contains allegations Kenny asked the staffer to do non-Senate work, including:
  • hiring a handy man
  • arranging the tailoring of his clothes
  • getting his drug prescriptions, including pills for erectile dysfunction
  • paying a dog-walker, and
  • arranging for the pick-up of keys to a Florida condominium
According to Senate rules, Kenny is not allowed to allocate, authorize the use of, or use a Senate resource except to carry out parliamentary functions.

The preliminary report does not draw any conclusions, and Kenny has denied the allegations.
