Rob Ford Update With Bonus Duffy And Unanticipated Mulcair

CTV says police knew about the “that sure looks like Rob Ford smokin’ crack” video before Gawker and the Toronto Star reported on itsexistence:

CTV News has learned that Toronto Police were investigating the existence of an alleged video involving Mayor Rob Ford, several weeks before the story first appeared in the Toronto Star. As part of the investigation leading to the raids on Thursday, officers obtained telephone wire-tap evidence. A highly-placed source confirms to CTV News that on those wiretaps, persons of interest discussed that video in detail, and referred to the mayor’s alleged presence in the video. CTV News has not seen the video, and cannot confirm its existence or authenticity.

More here. This is likely more trouble for Ford, who’s been busy lately voting against gay festivals and cultural events and institutions, presumably because he’s a gigantic dick who panders to the stupid, selfish douchebag vote.

In other political news, the RCMP have launched a criminal investigation into the $90,000 cheque Nigel Wright gave to Senator Mike Duffy and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair apparently thinks he’s too important to follow the rules.

  1. Anyone ever notice how wild Mulcair`s eyes look? Pretty scary dude. NDP is going nowhere with this guy.

  2. Canadians elected Stephen Harper’s Conservatives who were and are demonstrably vile. They’ve also elected (and re-elected) winners like Brian Mulroney and, provincially, Mike Harris, Ralph Klein, Bill Vander Zalm and good old Grant Devine. Mulcair’s alleged “wild eyes”–which in any case sounds like made-up partisan nonsense built around a mean photo or two–aren’t going to scare anyone off. Being an entitled asshole eventually might.

  3. Rob Ford hires his personal police stormtroopers to arrest anyone connected to “the video”.Nice.No more negativity toward RF or you’ll be next.

  4. Don`t think we need to worry much about Mulcair anyway. Justin is the man in the future for Canada I think.
