Patrick Brazeau on strip club gig: 'A job is a job' 0
OTTAWA — Sen. Patrick Brazeau quietly stood at the bar while an owner of Bare Fax strip club was surrounded by reporters over by perverts’ row.
“A job is a job,” Brazeau said softly to this reporter.
But what do you think of this attention?
“I’m used to it.”
Otherwise, he doesn’t say much.
Around 11:20 a.m. the suspended senator breezed through a throng of reporters waiting outside for him to arrive for his second day on the job as day manager. He climbed the stairs to the second-floor club and took up his post at the bar, just in time for the first customers and the lunch buffet.
Brazeau has been criminally charged for fraud and breach of trust for his housing expense claims and he's accused of assault and sexual assault in a domestic case.
Carmelina Bentivogoli, one of the owners, said Brazeau is a family friend.
“He was looking for a job and anyone looking for a job we’re happy to hire,” Bentivogoli said in the club office.
