Stephen Harper probably wishes the month of May had never happened

Of their many other May woes, the government is merely reaping what it's sown. Here are a few.

Canadians discovered that the government didn't bother to spend a much-needed $97 million it had budgeted for the disabled, youth employment and adult literacy. This followed other recent revelations that it also failed to spend $1.1 billion that was available for the urgent needs of veterans.

Twice already this month, the courts have found for Omar Khadr and against Stephen Harper. His government's visceral hatred for the man, its relentless attempts to destroy the rest of his life, has blinded them to law and Constitution alike. These last two judgments join a long series of embarrassing judicial defeats for the government.

Each day, the Mike Duffy trial makes not only Mr. Duffy but the Harper government look worse. The other week brought to light direct interference from the Prime Minister's Office with a Senate audit involving Mr. Duffy, using senators known to be particularly loyal to the Prime Minister. How long before Stephen Harper is directly implicated?
