New documents show that Prime Minister Stephen Harper's former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, is being investigated for bribery, fraud and breach of trust along with Senator Mike Duffy, in an RCMP probe that has expanded to include the Prime Minister's Office.

And don't forget, there's less than a week of campaigning left before voters in four federal ridings head to the polls on Monday.
