The Sun is working hard for the bailout

How is this for a misleading opening sentence?
The controversial RCMP investigation into the Liberal government's income trust decision cost taxpayers more than $445,000, documents released under Access to Information show.
Kind of makes it look like the Liberals were at fault and initiated the taxing of trusts.

As to the cost of a real scandal, you have to read to the end to find that:
The RCMP role in the Elections Canada review of the Conservative "in-and-out" scheme couldn't be accurately tallied because of the joint operation, but estimates put the overtime bill for Mounties at $8,963 and some related computer work at $2,000.
Step 6 is paying dividends for the Cons.
