Normandeau: "I was never manipulated"

Quebec's former deputy premier is defending herself against suspicions of corruption, saying she always carried out her duties with integrity, rigour and honesty.

Newly released court documents show that Liberal Nathalie Normandeau was investigated by the anti-corruption squad because of a fundraiser organized by the engineering firm Roche.

An e-mailed invitation circulated within the firm mentioned that attendees paying a thousand dollars a head would get direct access the minister.

No charges were laid in connection with the investigation.

In a statement, Normandeau says she was never manipulated by anyone and says she is available to speak to UPAQ or the Charbonneau Commission if necessary.

    Some people are so narcissistic, they can't help but dig their own graves. I don't see how this declaration can help her in any way.
