"That’s an outright lie," the Mayor tells the Sports Junkies.
Mayor Rob Ford denied today that there’s any truth to the new allegations arising out of the remaining portions of a 472-page police document released December 4. The newly revealed sections, which detail information about investigations related to the mayor, have added fuel to the Ford fire by adding at least one word to the Ford-scandal lexicon (“hezza,” slang for heroin), and raising troubling questions about blackmail, kidnapping, and drug activity.
Ford took the time to carefully consider and weigh these questions when speaking to journalists this morning—by which we mean, Rob Ford took the time to say “Number one: That’s an outright lie. Number two: You can talk to my lawyers about it” Thursday morning, during his interview with the guys from the Sports Junkies radio show. “I’m here to talk football, guys,” he said. “If you want to talk about other things then unfortunately, I’m going to have to let you go.” So it appears Rob Ford isn’t willing to have a serious discussion about these issues even with the Junkies.
Ford might not have gone into these allegations in any depth, but we do now know what he thinks about the Redskins (“All of a sudden the politically correct people have to come out now?”), health care (“I don’t believe in all this public-funded health care”), and women winning football pools (“I know, but they just look to who’s the cutest guy … that’s how they pick ’em”). Which would all be very nice and interesting, if we weren’t looking for answers about things like kidnapping, blackmail, and heroin.
