Laura Miller, a former aide to Dalton McGuinty, is crowdfunding to cover her legal defence bills.
Since starting the campaign 11 days ago, Miller has raised $28,000 from 29 contributors. Many of those who have donated feel she has been wrongly accused, including former Ontario finance minister Dwight Duncan. Her goal is $100,000 dollars, since being charged by police in December for alleged destruction and deletion of emails related to the gas plants scandal.
Should this be allowed? Is there the possibility her testimony could be swayed by wealthy “donors?” Isn’t this what public defenders are for?
