The Senator has finally spoken out, claiming his innocence and that he welcomes a review of his expenses by the Senate's internal economy board. According to Yahoo news on May 22, 2013, Senator Duffy spoke:
"Canadians deserve to know all of the facts. I am confident that when they do they will conclude, as Deloitte (the auditor) has already concluded, that my actions regarding expenses do not merit criticism," he said.
"I intend to co-operate fully with the Board and with all other authorities. and will have no further public comments until those processes are complete."
Duffy resigned from the Conservative caucus last Thursday after the Prime Minister's Office admitted that Nigel Wright, Stephen Harper's chief of staff, personally funded Duffy’s repayment of more than $90,000 in improperly-claimed living expenses. There are also reports suggesting that Duffy earned senate allowances while campaigning for the Tories in the 2011 election.
