Last week photos of Dean Del Mastro, a former secretary to Stephen Harper dominated the news as he was led in chains from the Courthouse in Peterborough Ont. He was found guilty of exceeding spending limits, failing to report a personal contribution of $21,000 to his own campaign and knowingly submitting a falsified document. It now appears Canadians have subsidized the legal fees of Mr. Del Mastro, through a fundraiser organized by his riding association headlining Brian Mulroney that raised $39,000 toward his defense. I call this one “Secretary’s Pool”.
