Rob Ford and the Day of Revelation
Well yesterday he was looking for any camera he could find to try to keep his face in the news.
But tonight he was hanging on for dear life and dodging the media, after police documents finally revealed the true heart of the Rob Ford scandal. Not just a mayor out of control.
But one at the mercy of CRIMINALS.
A trove of police wiretap evidence replete with allegations of extortion attempts, threats and boasts of numerous photographs of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford using illegal drugs is revealing the extent to which the mayor’s behaviour exposed his public office to criminal elements.
In one instance detailed in newly released information from a nearly 500-page police affidavit, Toronto police surveillance of the Dixon City Bloods gang picks up talk in one telephone conversation in which two alleged gang members discuss how they were offered a car and $5,000 for a video that they believed could fetch $150,000 from the media. Police say in the document they believe that offer for the video was made by Mr. Ford.
A man who may have used heroin, hung out with dangerous gangbangers, and was willing to do ANYTHING to try to save his reputation...
In a wiretap one month later of several telephones, gang members discuss the mayor’s missing cellphone, which Mr. Ford lost while at a suspected crack house on April 20. The mayor’s friend and then-occasional driver, Alexander Lisi, retrieved the cell from an alleged gang member in exchange for an unspecified amount of marijuana, the police information alleges.
And the only questions that need to be answered now are, when will Ford resign, why hasn't he been arrested?
The latest revelations about Mayor Rob Ford have prompted calls for Toronto police to explain why no charges have been laid against the mayor.
“I do think the people of Toronto should be given a bit more of an explanation from the chief,” Davis said. “I think any ordinary person who participated in this kind of activity, if it’s founded, would find themselves in very serious trouble.”
Where are his friends when he needs them?
What will the Ford Nation think about these latest allegations? Will they CRACK up or will they SMACK themselves stoopid?
How many times must the Fordzilla fall before he can't pick himself up?
And of course when is enough ENOUGH?
And the only sure thing is that Stephen Harper is going to wear this scandal until the day he too is driven from power...
Because we really do have that redneck bully bigot and his ghastly buddy exactly where we want them now.
And for all those like me who opposed Rob Ford from the moment he took office, especially the reporters from the Toronto Star who never gave up trying to expose him for who he really was, how sweet is this moment of vindication.
Charge him, jail him, remove him from office, and from the sight of all decent people.
Get that foul Con thug outta there...
Before he disgraces himself in an even more disgusting manner.
Before he shames us further...
