The brazman

I happened across Patrick Brazeau's wikipedia entry and I noticed that no one has updated it to reflect the swirl of controversy that followed his apointment to the Senate. Seems to me someone should.

Anyone who missed the web of stories about the appointment, allegations of double-dipping, sexual harrasssment, funding audits, colleagues drinking on the job, poor parenting or his Porshe SUV, here are links to all those stories and more. Go nuts.
