Senate Scandal

The Canadian government just paid $24 000 000.00 to auditors to spend 18 months going over the accounts of  the senators.  They found slightly more than $1 000 000.00 in inappropriate spending.  John Oliver has the details.

What's the bigger scandal- that they spent the million, or that we spent twenty four times that amount finding out that they spent the million?

At any rate, way to go Canada.  I am oddly proud to live in a country where this would be considered a scandal. Just think about it: how much money needs to be blown in other countries, such as- sorry guys, you're nice and we like you- our neighbours to the south, before it becomes a 'scandal'?
