Liberals 'pulling wool over taxpayers' eyes,' forensic accountant charges

One of Canada's leading forensic accountants dismissed the accounting reports commissioned by the Liberal party - and held up as proof that its books are clean - as 'half-baked' because they fail to track the money that was never recorded by party officials in the first place. Forensic auditor Dr. Al Rosen, a chartered accountant and a certified fraud examiner, said the Liberal party, notably Public Works Minister Scott Brison, is "pulling the wool over taxpayers' eyes" by pointing to the reports as evidence the party never received inappropriate cash donations from Quebec ad firms. "The engagements by the two auditing firms are not comprehensive enough to detect any scams or any form of dirty money transactions," Dr. Rosen said.

Okay - I'll agree that this is more convincing than "None of these reports mean bupkis" said noted blog commentator "Deaner."

Cheers,

I heard Ablonczy reference a most esteemed forensic accountant in QP just now and thought for a second she was talking about the author of this blog. :)

Rosen's pretty much a celebrity accountant... Or as close as you'll get to one in Canada.

Excellent work, mkb - the timing of questions in the House is very interesting - I wonder how many CPC MPs have you on their "favorites" list?

Well done!
