Rob Ford: Sarah Thomson’s Allegations Are “Absolutely, Completely False”

Mayor vehemently denies allegation of inappropriate conduct.

Rob Ford has just issued a statement strongly denying Sarah Thomson’s allegation that he made unwanted advances last night. The full text of his statement:

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful event to support the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee.

This is an event that is attended by numerous political leaders and where I have been a guest in the past.

Early this morning, false allegations were made regarding a number of disgusting actions. I am shocked, dismayed and surprised. I can say without hesitation that they are absolutely, completely false.

What is more surprising is that a woman who has aspired to be a civic leader would cry wolf on a day where we should be celebrating women across the globe.

This is a day we should all take the time to reflect upon the women in our lives and in our society. It is a day when we can envision the changes we want to make in our communities to ensure that all people are equal and that violence and discrimination against women comes to an end.
