Mayor of Toronto in epic crack cocaine and "fag" scandal

At last, some real news.

The Mayor of Toronto, a chap by the name of Rob Ford, has allegedly been caught on video smoking crack - from a crack pipe, natch - and calling an opposition politician a "fag". Today he was chased around Toronto by camera crews and hacks as he issued one lame non-denial denial after another.

The glorious details:

A cellphone video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around Toronto by a group of Somali men involved in the drug trade.

Two Toronto Star reporters have viewed the video three times. It appears to show Ford in a room, sitting in a chair, wearing a white shirt, top buttons open, inhaling from what appears to be a glass crack pipe. Ford is incoherent, trading jibes with an off-camera speaker who goads the clearly impaired mayor by raising topics including Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and the Don Bosco high school football team Ford coaches.

“I’m f---ing right-wing,” Ford appears to mutter at one point. “Everyone expects me to be right-wing. I’m just supposed to be this great.…” and his voice trails off. At another point he is heard calling Trudeau a “fag.” Later in the 90-second video he is asked about the football team and he appears to say (though he is mumbling), “they are just f---ing minorities.”

The Star, which by all accounts is no fan of Mr. Ford's, are even running a live commentary on the scandal, just for those who can't get enough: http://livenews.thestar.com/Event/Rob_Ford_crack_scandal_updates

Maybe the crack is payment for some favour he's doing.
Like visas for Somalians maybe....or some sort of manual labour that lasts a little while while and is sleazy perhaps....who knows?

You think calling someone a "fag" is as important an issue as a politician caught smoking crack?

Sounds like, at most, Mr. Trudeau could get him for slander.
Trudeau married Sophie Grégoire on May 28, 2005. Grégoire is a former model and Quebec television host. They have two children, Xavier born in 2007 and Ella-Grace born in 2009.

There's no hate in crack.

Could it all be a clever ploy to make Toronto more interesting?
