Rob Ford Crack Scandal Back In The News!

Toronto police Chief Bill Blair has revealed that his team is in possession of a video that allegedly shows Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine. Looks like Christmas came early to the Toronto Star this year!

Earlier in the year Gawker.com reported that they saw a video of Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine and making a homophobic slur about Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau. The Toronto Star, a self-described anti-ford media outlet, immediately jumped all over the scandal but then the video “mysteriously disappeared” and the incident slowly vanished from media attention. UNITL NOW.

Toronto police recovered a video featuring Rob Ford during an investigation into alleged gang activity this summer. The police are being a little vague about what the video entails, but according to Bill Blair, “the video files depict images that are consistent with what has previously been reported in the media.” So… crack?

And to top it off, Chief Blair also announced that police had taken the mayor’s friend and sometimes driver, Alexander Lisi, into custody and charged him with extortion. Lisi is also facing drug charges a previous crack-related incident.

Crack scandals are now old hat for the Toronto Mayor but he won’t take these new accusations sitting down. Well, he will because his weight won’t allow him to stand for very long… but you know what I mean.

“I think everybody has seen the allegations against me today. I wish I could come out and defend myself,” Ford said outside his city hall office on Thursday afternoon. “Unfortunately I can’t because I have to go to McDonald’s it’s before the courts. That’s all I can say.”

I have no reason to resign, I’m going to go back and return my phone calls, gonna be out doing what the people elected me to do and that’s save taxpayers money and run a great government,” an angry Ford continued.

Translation: My reasons for resigning have yet to be made public. I’m going to go back and eat my Big Mac, smoke some crack and run a great government.
