Liberal cabinet minister Sam Hamad's name came up in testimony at the Charbonneau Commission Friday.

The Commission's hearings heard from André Côté, the former vice-president of the engineering firm Roche, who told of how his company lent office space to Hamad just before the 2008 election campaign.

Côté was explaining how the firm responded to constant demands to finance political parties during the 2000s.

Hamad was named to the Couillard cabinet as labour minister. He's been the MNA for the Quebec City riding of Louis-Hébert since 2003 and held several cabinet posts in the former government of Jean Charest.
