Call for sobriety, uphold Senate's integrity

In a move to lessen the animosity, Gordon called on his colleagues to remain sober and to behave accordingly by upholding the Senate's integrity and not be swayed by an outburst of emotions.

"I call on my colleagues in the Senate to recover their sensibilities and sobriety. It was really just a matter of listening to each colleague and making sure that we try to continue our good relations within the Senate," Gordon said.

"The Senate is usually the senior house. It is a place where we talk about the national interest. It's actually unparliamentary to accuse one another of wrongdoing especially when what we only want to do is clarify certain questions on whether in fact there was double entry or overpayment," he added.
