Senator Patrick Brazeau lands a job as Frank Magazine’s newest Parliament Hill reporter

Sen. Brazeau applies for press passSuspended Senator Patrick Brazeau has landed a job.

According to the Chronicle Herald, Brazeau will join the media fraternity as a freelance reporter for Frank Magazine.

Brazeau contacted Frank to pitch the idea of him freelancing for them, according to Andrew Douglas, managing editor of the gossip paper.

After some deliberation, they agreed to take Brazeau on as a freelancer despite him having no reporting experience.

“Your guess is as good as mine how this is going to work out,” said Douglas.

“Who knows, he may give us a couple columns every week of interesting and insightful stuff. Or it could not work out, I have no idea.”

Douglas wrote a blog post on Frank Magazine's website to further explain the hire.

Listen, here's the deal. Frank Magazine exists, to paraphrase a famous quote, to comfort the afflicted, and be a pain the arse to the comfortable. And who could possibly be a bigger pain in the arse to, I dunno, just throwing' out some names here, Senators LeBreton, Tkachuk and Stewart-Olsen than their former colleague Patrick Brazeau? Can't you just picture it?

Frank Magazine reporter Patrick Brazeau: "Senator LeBreton, how do you feel about Frank Magazine calling you a PMO lickspittle? Also, are you nervous about possibly being the target of an obstruction of justice investigation since those recently released RCMP documents suggest you lied to police about your role in Senategate? Senator LeBreton, why are you running away from me? You're wearing heels. Senator LeBreton, that's dangerous. Senator LeBreton?

Brazeau was suspended from the Senate last month, along with Senators Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy for claiming inappropriate expenses. He's also the subject of two RCMP investigations. In addition to the expense scandal, Brazeau faces charges of assault and sexual assault from an incident earlier this year. The court proceedings for the latter, have been put off until February.

Not having a salary or entitled to a pension, 'The Brazman' took to Twitter on Friday, to look for a new job.

Lo and behold, it worked.

Brazeau hand delivered his Parliamentary press gallery application on Parliament Hill on Monday afternoon with a number of reporters on hand.

"I needed to get back to work," he said, according to iPolitics.

The Canadian Press' Steve Rennie asked Brazeau if he preferred an 'inverted pyramid style or more of a narrative' style of reporting.

Apparently, he didn't have an answer.

Should everything work out, the hire should increase the magazine's readership. A one-year online subscription for Frank Magazine costs about $50.
