Cam 'n Eggs: Mike Duffy and Rob Ford ***UPDATE WITH TORONTO STAR STORY AT 1 P.M.



(Ford and CTV reporter story)
 Mike Duffy and Rob Ford deserve each other — and, for all we know, they could be hiding out together somewhere in an undisclosed location.

MIKE DUFFY
They should be ashamed of themselves, not only for their recent actions, but also for wanting to cover them up.
Duffy is in hot water for the $90,000 cheque he received from, maybe, the prime minister’s office. Such a spicy situation for a senator.
Ford, the embattled mayor of Toronto, is under allegations he was with a few chums having a puff or two on the crack pipe.
Their situations deserve questioning on many levels. But perhaps the most compelling is they are both public servants. Their paycheques come from bank accounts that get deposits from taxpayers: in Duffy’s case federal taxpayers are paying the freight; in Ford’s case, it’s the taxpayers of Toronto.
Funny how both men chased reporters when they were seeking election.
Rob Ford
They won. But now they are being accused of wrongdoing and are avoiding reporters at all costs. Interestingly, Duffy has been on the other side of the camera many times chasing subjects who don’t want to talk.
That, clearly, isn’t fair. And the longer they remain in silent, the more questions will be raised.
We’ve seen it before. We’ll se it again.
But, somewhere, somehow, we should all learn from the disgrace others.
This time Mike Duffy and Rob Ford took the fall. The sooner they stand up and move forward, they can move on with their lives. And, sadly, ours too.
