NFLD: Accountability at work

Former Newfoundland cabinet minister Ed Byrne, in announcing his resignation amid a massive spending scandal, suggests it is actually he who is the victim of politics.

"Politics does exact a price on people," Byrne said. "I feel like I'm in a
position where I can't do it."

Poor Mr. Byrne. It's so tough for a corrupt politician to make a living these days.

Your last comment is entirely without foundation in fact.

No final finding has been entered in this matter and it is reprehensible that anyone would draw such libelous conclusions.

The provincial auditor's finding wasn't final?

Ed Hollett said...

No it wasn't final, not by a long shot.

Additionally, there is substantive evidence that the AG and his staff made substantive errors of fact in their skimpy initial reports.
