Remembering Happier Times...

It wasn't a great day yesterday for Pamela Wallin as the RCMP came out and alleged that she has defrauded the Senate, committed a breach of trust in filing inappropriate expense claims, and that "irregularities" in expense reports since 2009 have been flagged several times. Clearly, things are not going well for the senator, a once respected journalist turned university chancellor turned Conservative politician, which is why when I found this yesterday, I thought it might turn some frowns upside down...

I found this old copy of TV Guide while cleaning up, and saw the smiling face of Wallin advertising herself in her then new capacity as host of the Canadian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Notice how happy she is holding all that cash, seems kind of prophetic in hindsight, huh? I guess the final answer to the game show's titular question after all these years is "Pamela Wallin."
