Rob Ford: Are There More Scandals to Come?

TORONTO CRACK MAYOR WARNS MORE SCANDAL MAY COME Toronto Mayor Rob Ford warned Wednesday in his first city council grilling since admitting he smoked crack that there may be more revelations to come in the scandal.

Asked if he had any more skeletons in the closet, the mayor replied: "I don't know. I don't know, there might be like a coat hangar left in my closet. I don't know. I don't know what is left."

I don't know, 4 times, lol!

It look like he DOES know there is more to come. It should be interesting to see how much worse it will get!

I don't know X4. :/

Might be like a coat hangar? Minimize much, Mayor Ford?

If he doesn't know what's left in his closet, who does? Well, whoever has video/proof I guess. Any "coat hangars" without proof I'm sure will be left hanging.

O/T -- Peter, can you do another Hailey post? Bea doesn't have jack shit to do... and neither do you.

There is more coming. I am humiliated by this as I live in Toronto.

I knew the video did exist. I also knew Rob Ford was aware that he was under surveillance. How? An associate of mine informed me that they were called to the house that is being referred to as the crackhouse (FYI it is a crackhouse). My associate arrived and before even exiting the vehicle saw Rob Ford coming out the home. Ford immediately (slurring & all) accosted the vehicle. Hitting, yelling about being followed etc. Ford then took off in his black Escalade.
Upon entering the home, my associate was told Ford was inebriated due to not only alcohol but crack cocaine also. Said incident took place shortly after the existence of the video was initially denied by Rob Ford.

BTW my associate is not a substance user.

I could go on and on about the appalling way this situation has unfolded. I am absolutely disgusted with the way this was handled.

I would like to see another Hailey post as well. Can someone tell me who Bea is? Is she a searcher? Friend of Shawn and Billie? Thank you

I cannot believe there isn't some sort of policy, law, whatever, to force him to step down after admitting to breaking the law by purchasing illegal drugs.

---------------------------------

Bea is a local who believes she is also FBI and knows everything about Hailey's case. While I tend to believe that Billie and Shawn are guilty, I don't believe for a second that local LE tells Bea jack about this case (she purports to totally be in the know and has accused Hailey's Dad of being into child porn.) In short, she is a sad, bitter, lonely, elderly West Texas woman who has the appearance of having a severe problem with alcohol. She is in serious need of something resembling a life.And her clapboard house (shack) is Smurf blue. Hailey would have been terrified of her.

OT
Is Andy Kaufman still alive? Some statements from his alleged "daughter."
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-24939133

"He just wanted to be a stay-at-home dad, that's why he wanted to leave the showbiz."

"He's pretty much a great dad, and raised us. My mom has her own business... He helps her with that kind of thing, paperwork and stuff, so he can work from home and he doesn't have to be hiding out [or] concealing himself."

"He just makes us food and takes care of the house."

The anecdote at the end of the article sounds especially suspect:

Witnesses said the unnamed woman had explained the catalyst for her appearance was the death of her grandfather, Andy's father, in July.

In a video of the encounter, posted on gossip site TMZ, Michael is seen asking whether his brother is "getting close to revealing himself".

The woman covers her face and says, "I don't know what to say."

"I mean, he was really thinking about coming," she adds.

Michael then asks the audience not to follow the woman after she left the building.

"I won't give you her name. I don't even know [her] name," he says. "Let her have her privacy."

Anons OT Andy Kaufman.

He just WANTED to be a stay-at-home dad, THAT'S WHY he WANTED to leave the showbiz."

He just WANTED to be a stay-at-home dad.

What we want and what we get are two different things.

THAT'S WHY he WANTED to leave the showbiz."

"THAT'S WHY"

A need to explain, highly sensitive.

"He WANTED to leave the showbiz."

Not, that's why he left showbiz. Just that he wanted to.

WANTED is repeated twice making it sensitive.

"He's pretty much a great dad, and raised us. My mom has her own business... He helps her with that kind of thing, paperwork and stuff, so he can work from home and he doesn't have to be hiding out [or] concealing himself."

"He's pretty much a great dad,"

"Pretty much"

Unsure that he is a great Dad.

Not he is a Great dad.

"raised us"

Who is us she refers to ?

SO he can work from home and he DOESN'T have to be hiding out [or] concealing himself."

"SO".

Again a need to explain making it highly sensitive.

"DOESN'T have to be hiding out [or] concealing himself."

Anything said in the negative we note as sensitive.

"He JUST makes US food and takes care of the house."

"JUST"

Minimising language. Who is the US she refers to ?

Michael is seen asking whether his brother is "getting close to revealing himself".

The woman covers her face and says, "I DON'T know what to say."

"I DON'T know what to say."

The truth maybe?.

"I DON'T know what to say."

Again, anything in the negative is sensitive

She says she doesn't know what to say, and then says.

"I mean, he was REALLY thinking about coming," she adds.

"he was REALLY thinking about coming,"

Here she uses the qualifier "REALLY" which weakens her statement. The more qualifiers the weaker the statement. A qualifier is a word/words when removed doesn't affect the meaning of the sentence.

"REALLY"

Is also used to convince.

"I WON'T give you her name. I DON'T EVEN know [her] name," he says. "Let her have her privacy."

"I WON'T give you her name. I DON'T EVEN know [her] name."

First he says he WON'T give her, which to me sounds like he does know her name.He then says "I don't EVEN know her name. He also qualifies his statement by using the word EVEN.

I would like to see the full transcript to this, give that, for me there are a lot of sensitivities.

IMO.

I agree, John. I thought the same things. (I'm the anonymous person who posted the Andy Kaufman link.)

Another thing that seemed weird to me: "He just makes us FOOD..." Nobody "makes" food. You make MEALS. I just thought that was an odd turn of phrase.

Peter, do you really have to post such a nasty-mouth article quoted from a slimy reprobate?

As many lost and pathetic children as there are that are missing and some dead, and as much sadness and evil as there is in this life, one would think you could find something more suitable to converse about.

This is disgusting. To quote: "You shall know them by the fruits they bear." What kinds of fruits are you bearing, Peter?
