She's breaking her silence in her first sit down, long form interview since the senate scandal broke.

Suspended Senator Pamela Wallin sat down with Newstalk1010's Ryan Doyle, and talked openly about what exactly happened.

"There were mistakes made, there's no question about that. But not many" said Wallin when talking about what ultimately led to her suspension.

But she says those mistakes were more sloppiness in book-keeping rather than her intent on deliberately robbing the system.

"I probably didn't pay as much attention as I should have."

She says the total money that was involved was between 35 and 38 thousand dollars... money she's since paid back, but that's something she regrets.

"I just think it's something that's given people the excuse to say, oh you must be guilty, because you paid it back."

Wallin wouldn't comment on what she would say to the Prime Minister if she was able to have a sit down chat with Stephen Harper.

Wallin has been suspended since November, along with other Senators Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau, and there continues to be an investigation into alleged improper expenses.
