Duffy accused of charging taxpayers for personal travel to funerals, ceremonies

The court documents, released this afternoon, allege that Sen Mike Duffy filed eight separate expense claims that the RCMP says involved personal or partisan travel.

Sen. Mike Duffy is now accused of charging taxpayers for personal travel to funerals and giving money to three people under the guise of a consulting contract.

A new court filing alleges ``inappropriate expense claims associated with personal attendance at funeral and related ceremonies.''

The court documents, released this afternoon, allege that Duffy filed eight separate expense claims that the RCMP says involved personal or partisan travel.

The claims were filed from June 2009 to September 2012.

The RCMP announced last week that it was charging Duffy with 31 criminal counts related to his expense claims, accusing him of misspending more than $200,000.

The charges stem from the disgraced senator's housing and travel expenses, and a $90,000 payment from Nigel Wright, the former chief of staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
