Brian Mulroney has been ordered by a court to pay $470,000 to former business associate Karlheinz Schreiber ($300,000 for the bribe, oh sorry "gift", plus expenses and interest).
The fact is that Bri keeps walking away from every scandal he finds himself in, smelling of cheap air freshener and with a couple of million from threatening to sue the crap out of various bodies, such as the former Liberal government (for libel)....
"The federal Liberal government apologized to Mulroney in early 1997 for wording in a Justice Department letter to Swiss authorities two years earlier that left the impression he and others had received illegal payments in connection with the 1988 purchase of 34 Airbus Industrie jetliners by then Crown-owned Air Canada.
Federal authorities had also paid the former prime minister's $2-million legal bill.
The apology came just hours before Mulroney's $50-million libel suit against the government and the Mounties was to go to trial in Montreal.
The RCMP insisted at the time that despite the settlement its probe of the Airbus transaction was still actively being pursued. However, in an April 2003 statement, the police force said it had wrapped up its Airbus investigation."
So, I wonder how long it will be before Bri threatens to sue the Ontario government, walks away with another couple of million for the damage to his "reputation", and then resurfaces tooting his horn about how he was "Canada's Greatest Prime Minister"™.
Yep! Shit floats....
