Preview Clip

A Senate committee ordered Senator Pamela Wallin to pay back an additional 83-thousand dollars in ineligible travel expense claims after an auditor found she billed for expenses that didn't fit with her job description. She had already paid back about 38-thousand dollars. Liberal Senator George Furey, a member of a three-person panel that reviewed the audit, said the findings were sent to police for further examination. (After further reviews, Wallin had to reimburse the Senate a grand total of $138,970. A month later, she gave the Senate personal cheques amounting to $100,600, plus $13,000 interest.)
