Suspended Sen. Patrick Brazeau says the reason he was canned from Frank Magazine was because he didn't want to do stories about other senators, drugs and prostitutes.
In tweets Thursday afternoon, Brazeau said the magazine's editor told him:
2/2..I dunno, Duffy doin coke off a hookers' tits." Not my style of reporting and I make no apologies for having class and morals. #cdnpoli— SenPatrickBrazeau (@TheBrazman) January 16, 2014
Frank Magazine responded, tweeting back:
In his final tweet at the magazine, Brazeau said:
He then went on to say he tried to apply for employment insurance, but was told he didn't qualify for it:
Was told today I wasn't eligible for EI b/c "I haven't worked since October 2011. I have 30 days to challenge the decision. Huh? #cdnpoli— SenPatrickBrazeau (@TheBrazman) January 16, 2014
Brazeau was canned from the Halifax-based satirical magazine after just one column.
Douglas announced the decision in a column titled "Please forgive me" in the magazine's latest edition.
"Operation Give a Dog a Bone has been terminated," Douglas wrote.
During his short time with the magazine, Douglas alleged Brazeau would "inexplicably drop off the map for a day or two, not answering e-mails or telephone calls."
What's more, Douglas said Brazeau's one stab at writing wasn't up to snuff.
Brazeau, Duffy and Pamela Wallin were suspended from the Senate without pay in November for improper expense claims.
