Mac Harb charged with fraud, breach of trust

Today, the RCMP charged former Liberal Senator Mac Harb with fraud and breach of trust related to his Senate expenses.

Harb is the only Senator whose expenses are being reviewed to outright resign from the Senate. On his way out he repaid Canadian taxpayers a staggering $231,000, hoping his resignation and repayment would earn him favour with the ongoing RCMP investigation.

But that didn't stop Liberal leader Justin Trudeau from saying he would welcome Harb back into the caucus, dismissing the issue as an honest mistake.
