Default Rob Ford (Potentially) Smokes Crack

Quote:
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.”

Here is the initial article from Gawker which started the ball rolling:

Quote:
Rob Ford, Toronto's conservative mayor, is a wild lunatic given to making bizarre racist pronouncements and randomly slapping refrigerator magnets on cars. One reason for this is that he smokes crack cocaine. I know this because I watched him do it, on a videotape. He was fucking hiiiiigh. It's for sale if you've got six figures.

It began like this: We've made fun of Ford before for his bizarre pronouncements and nude pictures. Last week, we got a tip from someone claiming to have a videotape of Ford smoking crack. Would we like to buy it?

The tipster made the following claims:

• Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smokes crack cocaine.

• There is a video of Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine, taken within the last six months.

• Rob Ford purchases his crack cocaine from a crew of Toronto drug dealers that service a veritable who's who of A-list...Torontonians? Torontites? Anyway, a lot of prominent people in Toronto purchase and enjoy crack and powder cocaine, and they all buy it from the same folks. The same folks Ford buys it from. Ford's longtime friend, people on his staff, his brother, a prominent hockey analyst, and more.

If Rob Ford blames the Leaf's Game 7 heart breaker for his crack use, what percentage of Torontonians go "ehh, ok."?

Be real: Ford is only going to get in trouble for all of this if it turns out the crack wasn't locally grown & certified organic ...

I will say that he looks closer to 340lbs vs the 400ish he looked like when he took office.

BTW, if you're the Mayor of a city and you're called a crackhead wouldn't you be absolutely defiant and outraged. Does this dumbass look the least bit upset? To me his statement is a little weird, then again look who we're talking about....


We have Peter Griffin for a mayor...

Ford is in trouble and he knows it. He doesn't even bother denying if the video is fake.

the more attention he gives it, the more it'll be discussed. the more he says about it, the more everyone with analyze every word that comes out of his mouth. he handled it appropriately. it's a none story that doesnt need to be bothered about

You're talking about damage control in the sense that he can move on. But if he has issues with substance abuse, there just isn't any moving on in his position. He's the mayor of a huge city. There's no way to make this a none story. And for his personal health it's wrong for him to think of it as a none story. The dude needs help. He doesn't need to be mayor that much, nor does he seem to want to be mayor much of the time. It's time for those around him to handle this properly for his own sake first, and the city's sake as well.

Doesn't he have a DUI and wasn't he once kicked out of the ACC for causing a fight while drunk or something like that. Substance abuse wouldn't shock me with this guy tbh.

He was busted for smoking pot. He portrays himself as a big fun-loving guy, but it's not hard to see beneath the veneer where he turns towards a lot of self-destructive behaviours. It's really extremely hard to see anything truly fun-loving about him at this point.

this is assuming that he does smoke crack and there is a video of him doing so. if he doesn't smoke crack, and there is no video, there's no reason to pay this any attention.
