Read our morning tease to catch up on the issues of the day, and then chime in on Twitter with #QP.

Sen. Mike Duffy stood in the Senate yesterday and, for the second time in a week, defended himself against claims made by his political enemies—namely, the Prime Minister’s Office and its fearless leader, Stephen Harper. Today, the government will be forced to answer Duffy’s newest accusation: that the PMO paid his legal bills earlier this year.

Meanwhile, CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes is taking on the Senate expenses scandal.
