Mint - Not Taxpayers Fund Massages

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Seems our favourite "entitlement" driven lobbyist turned chief money maker has a yen for massages, which have been found on his expense reports.

In particular, one involved a cash advance from a Thailand BKK hotel, of which, $2,000 baht (or about $60 Cdn) was used for a "massage".

According to the anonymous source, for $2,000 baht you get more than just a regular Thai massage (which at the most is $100 baht/hour). For $2,000 baht, you get the very nice "Turkish" massage, which apparently includes several forms of sexual play.

Wow. Isn't it great knowing that the Mint pays for Dingwall's dick to get played with (discussion of diseases caught by Thai prostitutes is another post) .. and not taxpayers.

Whew... that' s a relief.

P.S. Begs the question... why was someone bitching about a pack of gum???

I don't know Aiz., this is going to require a closer inspection. I think I'll have to go on a tax payer funded trip to conduct a full investigation on what transpired so I can submit a fuel report with all the details. It may require me going through the Thai system 5 or 10 times so I don't miss anything... LOL

Sweet! I never read tha one. Check this:

The Royal Canadian Mint provided the complete bill and invoice to The Chronicle Herald later. It shows that Mr. Dingwall was not reimbursed for the massage — which he paid for in cash — but he did take a 9,000 baht cash advance from the hotel the day before the massage and was reimbursed for that: about $260.

Why on earth would someone get a cash advance reimbursed? That, one hopes, is part of the 2k or so in expenses the auditors spat out?

Aiz Aiz Aiz: You've got this all wrong... what you miss is that not only did he get a "massage" by some Bankok Boinker; he also gave the whole country the "shaft"... if you know what I mean.

Debris Trail... I guess you could say that he got "rubbed" the right way, while he was being "shuffled" to the "head" of the class!

It is a most penetrating perplexity. Keep us abreast of any new info that comes up aiz.

I'm so surprised. A few years back our B.C. Socred Health Minister Bob Mclelland charged party favours on his govt. credit card.

It made the front pages of the Sun & Province.

I though he was stupid for doing that. Now I know Dingwall is Jesuite crafty smart, yet he does the same stupid thing. Amazing!

Just goes to show how all of us males can be so stupid when we're feeling *urgent*. eh? TG

Aizlynne:
It's a good thing Canadian news is non-existent in the States. If the US MSM ran the story about Dingwall, it would REALLY sink Canada's reputation here - the loonie would probably drop 5 cents....

BTW I'm opening discussion at my blog about Michaelle Jean's smart-aleck big-mouth remarks about the PQ and a prominent PQ politician.

Which also begs the question... Why is Alberta still part of this corrupt country?
