A Tory MP says Harper's chief of staff was just protecting taxpayers when he wrote embattled Sen. Mike Duffy a personal cheque for $90,000.

"Because we didn't believe taxpayers should have to pay the cost and Mr. Duffy was not in a position to pay them himself," Poilievre said.

"So what we have here is that Nigel Wright did an exceptionally honourable thing. He reached in to his own resources, wrote a personal cheque out of his own bank account to cover the costs of these ineligible expenses and to protect taxpayers."
