Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Apologizes For Lewd Comments
Can’t remember what your boy Rob said??? CLICK HERE to refresh your memory!!!
According to BBC News:
Troubled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has apologised for obscene comments he made on live TV while denying he had offered oral sex to a female staff member. The Canadian politician used what he called “unforgivable language”, in remarks to reporters. He also threatened to take legal action against former employees who made claims about his drinking and drug use.
It is the latest scandal to engulf 44-year-old Mr Ford, who last week admitted smoking crack cocaine. Police documents released on Wednesday quoted Ford associates as saying that the mayor had driven drunk, used racially abusive language, threatened staff, consorted with a woman suspected of being a prostitute and made a sexual proposition to a female staff member. On Thursday morning, he told reporters the allegations were “outright lies”, although he conceded he might have driven after taking alcohol.
However, reporters were left gasping by his profane outburst as he denied having once offered oral sex to a former female employee. The father of two young children said that he was “happily married” and crudely commented that he enjoyed enough oral sex at home. Later on Thursday, Mr Ford was flanked by his wife, Renata, as he expressed regret for the “graphic” language, the latest in a string of apologies. He said his integrity as a father and husband had been attacked, prompting him to “see red”. “I acted on complete impulse in my remarks,” he said. Mr Ford also announced he was getting help from healthcare professionals.
The erratic mayor was wearing a Toronto Argonauts jersey when he made the sexually charged comments. The Canadian Football League team said in a statement: “These latest remarks, while wearing our team’s jersey, are particularly disappointing.
SMH and the city of Toronto has just about enough of this guy’s antics!
Is Friday the beginning of the end for Toronto’s troubled Mayor Rob Ford? Not so, if you ask Ford. But a growing contingent in Toronto’s City Council seem to think it’s time for him to go. The council is scheduled to meet Friday to begin mapping out a plan to usurp much of Ford’s power. Despite admitting last week that he had smoked crack cocaine in a “drunken stupor” about a year ago, Ford has defiantly said he will not leave his job. But in a new twist, Canada’s Sun News Network announced that Ford and his brother Doug will begin hosting their own TV show on Monday. The show, “Ford Nation,” picks up where the two brothers left off on a talk radio show that ended its run last week, the network said on its website.
A headline on that site posed the question, “Canada’s Ultimate Reality Show?” And it quoted Doug Ford saying, “Rob is like Howard Stern or Rush Limbaugh” and “You just never know what he is going to say.”
“Mayor Ford seems to be in a no-holds-barred mode,” the network said. “There is no filter. There is no careful treading.” Critics of Sun News Network have described its conservatism as “Fox News North,” according to a story about its launch in 2011 by the Toronto Globe and Mail.
SMH. We’re interested in seeing how this all pans out.
