Businessman Rahim Jaffer dined with tied to Hells Angels; Helena Guergis under RCMP investigation

New allegations have emerged stating that Rahim Jaffer and a business associate claiming to be a banker for the Hells Angels tried to sell political influence, reports the Toronto Star. The new reports coincide with RCMP investigations of his wife, minister of state for the status of women Helena Guergis, who allegedly allowed Jaffer to use her parliamentary office to conduct commercial business, and may have sat in on meetings herself. These reports follow Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s announcement on Friday of Guergis’ resignation, and subsequent ejection from the Conservative caucus until the matter is resolved.
