...by getting super drunk and sexually assaulting a woman!

Publisher and former mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson says:

Thought it was a friendly hello to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford at the CJPAC Action Party tonight until he suggested I should have been in Florida with him last week because his wife wasn't there. Seriously wanted to punch him in the face. Happy International Women's Day!

Where's his hand? No one wants to know.

He also grabbed her ass. She's demanding an apology and contemplating filing sexual assault charges against him.

So if this happened last night, why is the FordWatch count 0? Because he compounded his already poor decision making by releasing a statement. You should go read the whole thing because it's hilarious/terrifying, but here is my favourite bit (emphasis mine):

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.


Fuck this guy. Fuck this guy on behalf of every survivor of rape or sexual assault who's ever had their story questioned or disbelieved, their past interrogated, their actions dissected, or the blame shifted from the rapist to them. Fuck him so much.

His full title is now the Honourable Wife-Beating, Drunk-Driving, Bird-Flipping, Ass-Grabbing Mayor of the Increasingly Embarrassed City of Toronto.

In other news, the kids he coaches instead of doing mayoral stuff apparently don't like being called thugs and gangbangers by him or treated as political pawns. Who'd have guessed?

Oh man, this case is really bringing he-man-shitheads out of the woodworks. Between guys defending Ford here and defending Flanagan last week, I'm thinking of stopping reading the Canadian Politics forum I read.

CanadaPolitics subreddit. You can't really troll it since it's heavily moderated. You can't even make dishonest arguments or insulting comments, to a degree, which is part of what I appreciate about it. It's interesting to be able to debate with Tories and Liberals in a very moderated environment. That said sometimes the conservatives dominate arguments on certain issues and it can be frustrating.

We don't want to know…

How about with a red hot poker?

If it was good enough for old Johannah Donnelly...

Well, okay so allegedly but not really good enough for Johannah Donnelly and King Edward II seems like an acceptable treatment for the not-at-all-Honourable-actually Wife-Beating, Drunk-Driving, Bird-Flipping, Ass-Grabbing Mayor of the Increasingly Embarrassed City of Toronto.

Top comment on Star article:
One stupid comment deserves another; so let's just say if Rob Ford wasn't born rich, he'd be dead or in jail right now.
