Lol, guy is a train wreck and then some…

Cannot believe TO citizens voted this clown in… 

But then they don’t exactly have the best track record with Mayors!!

I look forward to the day that the media get their hands on this video!  I have no doubt that it exists and that it is real, not doctored.  Given his behaviour over his mayoral term, this actually explains a lot!

As much as I love crooked politicians (well hearing about them at least) and as much as this is believable, it’s just too much for me to buy it.

Now all of a sudden the owners of the video are no where to be found, apparently this Mayor was dumb enough to do this on camera? I mean politicians aren’t always the brightest but this is like politics 101-Never get caught on camera doing something immoral or illegal.

And it goes on to say he makes racist jokes, and a crack about homosexuals or something of the sort all in one short video. I just don’t buy it, seems like someone is setting him up. May all be true but it just seems bogus to me. But it is politics, stranger things have happened.

I’m looking into the 20 things worth know, wow this man… Oh it’s nuts! Men like him are the reason I see all politics on the same level as a circus. Wow!

ETA: I just realized he’s up in Canada! Wow! I thought for sure, with the way the US government has been heading that he was American. Ugh, American politicians are infectious

I think it’s hilarious.

Last year, people were buzzing because he flipped someone off and now he smokes crack (allegedly).

It’s like Toronto’s own reality show!

@AB Bride:  I am currently in Toronto for work, but I don’t live here (we just moved away). Anyway, I was also surprised no one posted about this because I have heard it has become an international scandal. No video has surfaced yet and I sincerely wonder if one even exists. We can’t crucify someone over something that hasn’t even happened yet.

Also, I always try to look at the politics as opposed to the person. He is very against the new taxes that are going to plague Toronto and I support that he supports that. Nobody is perfect and public figures are scrutinized more than anyone else. I look at his track record as mayor, not at all the stupid things he has done (or in many cases, supposedly done).

While the drama surrounding Rob Ford is sensational and entertaining, as a resident of Toronto I am absolutely fed up with all of it.  We always want attention from our American friends but this is putting us on the map in a very negative way.  It’s hard enough to govern a major city in the best of times so this is not good for the city.

I don’t know whether the video exists or not (though with his track record of bad behaviour I wouldn’t put it past him). However, putting aside the existence of the video, the departure of a handful of his closest advisors as well as his lack of a leader like response to the issue is unbecoming of a mayor.  Regardless of his policies and whether or not you support them, I would think that Ford’s constant “issues” really distract from getting any real City Hall business done.

I don’t live in Toronto, I love the city but glad I don’t live there. Rob Ford is a total ass.

Ford is an embarrassment. I can not believe he is still in power, he is a horrible representation of Toronto. 

The guy in the below pic with him (Anthony Smith) was also the guy killed out the front of Loki Lounge a couple of months ago. It’s all related to the crack allegations and the fact that Ford is now confident the video no longer exists.

This man should have stepped down a long time ago. The fact he is still in office blows my mind.
