@mu_t:  I’m from the US, and after the NSA debacle, I feel I’m pretty much immune to my country’s leaders embarsssing me.

US bee… I haven’t heard anything about it, but then again, we have plenty of our own politicians’ crimes, misdeeds, and all around douchebaggery to fill the news.

I did hear about this – your mayor sounds like a trainwreck! 

Reminds me of Marion Barry, who was the mayor of Washington, DC in the 1980s and was caught (and arrested) for smoking crack.

So, you’re not alone, Toronto!

@mu_t:  I have a sneaking suspicion he’ll get himself out of this. Say what you want about the man, but he seems to have a knack for getting out of trouble…..

Regardless, its embarassing.

I saw this on the news-ticker not long ago.  I have to say I never believed the tape was real, and am shocked to hear the police have it now.  I can’t stand Rob Ford and hope this will finally be the last straw for those who still defend him.

@mu_t:  Ford and his brother are so embarrassing and I can’t believe he still has a 49% approval rating. People in this city are still supporting him! ACK! I wish we had someone more like Hazel out in Mississauga. Ford hangs around with the wrong people and has shady business dealings. And he thinks he’s above the law.

I’m betting the Toronto Sun will start kissing his ass again. They love him like he is the almighty king or something. I’m hoping he gets dishonourably booted from office, and that we get someone better in next time around.

@mu_t:  So embarassing… you have to wonder what exactly is on the tape tho, if it’s not enough to press charges. Maybe he is just present while others do it? Who knows! I hope they release it to the public, but I doubt they will.

@mu_t:  I really liked the twitter comparison between the 3.  I’m not sure about Iveson yet, but of the 6 candidates, I think he was the best.
