    Eh.. At best he hasn't made things worse.
    And lets not forget the strongest point about Olivia chow.
    She's not addicted to crack cocaine.
    It helps a lot not being a junkie when running for mayor.

    It is crack, not a bit of weed.

    I feel stupid for even bringing this up. But you seriously think that alcohol or weed = crack in terms of damage and consequences of the drug short term and long term?

    It's hilarious that there's a fundraiser going on to pay the drug dealer for the video. Almost 40k raised so far.

    National Post who's a big supporter of Ford (Unlike Toronto Star) is starting to question Ford. Obviously Toronto Star knows what's at stake for putting this story out. Even then, this originated from Gawker

    Honestly, I'd be surprised if this video will still be intact a week from now. This drug dealer is about to make the deal of a lifetime, whether it's 200k or Ford nation paying him out to Calgary (Where the dealer wants to relocate)

    I love Toronto. It's almost as crazy as my town.

    Smoking crack is bad for your teeth. Why would you do that?

    All I can say to this story is pfft.

    Either A. The video is a very good fake, and it's going to make some grifters a lot of money and spark an endless barrage of "he-said she-said", which all politicians pretty much deal with on a daily basis, and it will have absolutely no influence on Ford's political career.

    or B. The video is real; but Ford will end up pulling a Letterman, coming out with a heartfelt confession and plead for forgiveness, making the video worth exactly 0 cents.

    EDIT: Also, he's long past the politicians retirement age of 10, so all he really has to do if it's true is resign and go to rehab and he's set for life.

    I've heard they're looking for 6-7 figures for it. I strongly doubt they'll get that.

    Toronto mayor possibly smokes crack. Should we cough up the money for the video?

    http://www.thestar.com/news/city_hal...llor_says.html

    I personally think that the selling of the video is pretty gross. Apparently the video was taken by Somali drug dealers in Etobicoke. (South west Toronto) If Toronto does have a mayor addicted to crack the people of Toronto should know. (I don't think anyone smokes crack just once and is done with it. Saying that he is addicted is speculation on my part). He is a pretty shitty mayor as far as I know, and has gotten away with some pretty crappy things in the past. He is consistently in the media for misconduct. He was almost removed from office at one point for a conflict of interest conviction. (It was appealed and he won). It all sounds like a bad movie to be honest lol.

    Edit: Just to add on my stance is that: no, people shouldn't have to pay money to see something like this. It's pretty much all greed. 200 000 for a video like this is absurd.

    Give a vast amount of money to dangerous drug dealing thugs? I see no downside.

    I'm sure a drugs test would be cheaper

    At this point Ford has had so many scandals, that I don't think another one would make any difference. Everyone who could quit supporting him has done so already, and everyone who still supports him simply doesn't care.

    A blood test for drugs costs something like 50 dollars. Do that instead.

    Just a quick update. It seems like the video is not gonna sell. 71k/200k with only 8 days left doesn't seem likely.

    Here is the link to the sale. (lol @ calling it crackstarter)

    LOL at the apologists claiming "well alcohol!" yes, that's just like crack.

    Also a few small points: The guy who is trying to sell the tape is doing so because, he claims, that he wants to change his life and get away after the second person in the video was murdered recently. Hard to believe a crack dealer, but your close associate getting murdered will do that to you.

    And yeah, it's a big deal. One, because it's blatantly illegal and shows a flippant disregard for the law, of someone who is supposed to be leading it. Also, associating with such people is a pretty large warning sign there's going to be corruption right and left, left and right.
    Still bitter.
