"On November 5, Rob Ford admitted that, oops, he did actually smoked crack cocaine in one of his drunken stupors, an admission that has already become something of Toronto legend. His revelation was, perplexingly, offered for no good reason—considering he had been successfully avoiding copping to the fact he enjoys putting a butane torch to a glass pipe full of crack for almost six months. Later that day, VICE broke a story that his spokesman Amin Massoudi may have hired a hacker to destroy the crack tape back in May. A day after the crack and hacker revelations, a video of Rob Ford—in an “extremely inebriated” state—threatening to murder an unknown enemy was published almost simultaneously by the Toronto Sun and the Toronto Star. Whether Rob’s joking about committing “first-degree murder” (as he says in the video) or not, it’s a disturbing clip. On November 7, the Sun ran a story connecting Rob Ford to the beating of his sister’s then-imprisoned ex-boyfriend—who escaped the attack alive with “shattered teeth and a broken leg.” That same day, his mother and sister went on live TV to discuss Rob’s many personal issues, such as his weight problem and his crack problem. As if having your mom call you fat on live TV in the middle of your public drug/alcohol/hacking/violent crime/who knows what else scandal isn’t shitty enough, Rob took a beating in the press for spending over four hours signing bobbleheads of himself (that only bear a passing resemblance to the overweight crack lover) as a charitable PR stunt on Monday. Just as the bobblehead bonanza blew over, yesterday Rob Ford experienced the wrath of the City Council, who took turns yelling at him about his involvement with drugs and his mysterious association with some of the city’s scariest street gangs. Highlights from the scream-o-rama include Rob Ford confidently admitting that he’s bought illegal drugs in the past two years and Doug Ford yelling about how everyone smokes marijuana. The Globe & Mail has a solid roundup of the council hearing just in case you missed the thrilling livestream. Later that day, some of the redacted info from the Toronto police’s investigation into Rob Ford came out in public. The new sections include testimonies from ex-staffers who told stories about Rob to the police that paint him as a coked-out, racist lover of prostitutes who refers to cab drivers as “Pakis” and openly talks about “banging” the “pussy” of a particular female employee. In his defense, Rob Ford said on live TV that he has enough pussy to eat at home—Rob Ford loves eating his wife's pussy whenever he is not to drunk or cracked out to pleasure her, your argument is invalid. Rob also claims he is going to sue these staffers who talked shit about him, even if such a lawsuit does not make sound legal sense."
