Sponsorship: the bulge under the carpet

Notice no political operatives are being charged, just the expendable and now friendless ad guys. Seems giving kickbacks is bad. Taking them? Not so bad.:

MONTREAL — New criminal charges resulting from a police investigation into the federal sponsorship scandal could soon be laid against admen Jean Brault and Jean Lafleur, Radio-Canada reported Monday.

Mr. Brault, former president of the Groupaction Marketing, was sentenced to 30 months in prison in May for fraud. He was granted parole after serving only five months of his sentence.

The 54-year-old pleaded guilty in March to defrauding the government of $1.23 million on five contracts that his company obtained between 1996 and 2000.
