“Go Away And Get Help”: Ford’s Advisor

Well, not surprising at this point, I guess:

Mark Towhey was fired as Mayor Rob Ford’s chief of staff because he told Ford in no uncertain terms to “go away and get help,” a source close to the mayor’s office has told CBC News. Towhey was unceremoniously dumped from his job Thursday in the midst of a scandal that has ripped apart Toronto municipal politics — with the city’s colourful mayor caught in the midst of allegations that he was recorded smoking crack cocaine. The story broke last week and shortly after Towhey faced down the mayor telling him he needed help. “There’s nothing more I can do for you,” the source quoted Towhey as telling Ford. The chief of staff then told Ford to “go away and get help.”

Story here. I hope Ford resigns soon. This is painful.

Oh, and the Rob Ford Crackstarter is at $160, 397.

One thought on ““Go Away And Get Help”: Ford’s Advisor”

  1. So Mayor Ford supposedly fired Mark Towhey because he didn’t like Mark’s advice?
    Man…..you don’t have to fire, just ignore the advice if you don’t want to use it.
