Really?

So there is a "legitimate" use of crack cocaine? Like, a little is ok, but I don't know, if you were to say use your influence as mayor of a city to procure more, that would be too far?

Influence is never needed to get narcotics... only cash.

And sometimes influence makes it harder to get narcotics because you have an image to maintain and are under public scrutiny.

Do I reeeeeally think this guy is a crackhead? Mo. Do I really think this guy is going any crack at all? Actually, no.

I feel there is so much more than what we know right now...the packages, the drop offs and pick ups, knowing shady people, the gas station and laundromat exchanges, etc....all fucking weird.

I'll give y'all one word (actually, two): Gus Fring.

My money is on him being one of T.dot's biggest crack dealers.

Ya know, this is the thing: even if he was a total fucked-up crackhead, alcoholic, raving maniac looney tune... if he can go into city hall, sit behind his desk, and do shit that makes my city a better place and saves a shitload of my tax dollars doing it, then who the fuck am I to judge?

Plenty of towns, provinces, states, and even countries have been run into the ground by tight-assed, clean-living, baby-kissing, brown-nosing politicians who said and did all the right things and looked real good to everyone, who didn't have a clue about what they were actually doing.

I'm assuming everyone here has seen this classic before:

Quote:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.

Candidate A - Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He's had two Mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B - He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C - He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.

Spoiler!

Talk about OP missing the point and derailing this thread right from the start. Then I went back and read the actual article and found out that it's about Ford's alleged continuous and intricate association with alleged drug trafficker.

It's interesting how Bill Blair called Ford out on this. If the police is really going to recommend charges against Ford, they would not have released this much details to the public. I wonder what's Blair's motive in all of these.

Just listening to the morning news, Doug Ford is now saying Blair released the video clip because he has a personal axe to grind with his brother, and should step down as a police chief.

This is turning into an all-out soap opera...

Soap opera is one part.

Major bloody distraction is another. Cast a little disbelief the police chief's way.

When does Toronto have its election again?

I respect others choices here, but I personally expect more out of public officials. Regardless of what they achieve IN office, I expect them to conduct themselves appropriately at all times.

That's me.

Now that he has admitted he smoked crack, its time for him to resign. Immediately.

At this point, I really don't see how he can not resign from mayorship. Especially when it comes to the blatant lying (repeated denial of cocaine use when media had asked him in the past) and the trying to brush it off as "you guys weren't asking the right questions".

Then again, he should have resigned back when his photos with the alleged drug dealer first surfaced months ago. So nothing could really surprise me now.

I find it hilarious that I picked B with out ever having heard of any of this before. I like my leaders to have a little fucking personality.

Regardless of anyone's feelings on the actual crack use vs anything else, the main main reason people step down at a time like this is to respect the office.

When you hold on too long, it becomes less about being mayor and more about responding to allegation after allegation.

It's time to go.

Well assuming we take him at his word here, that he did it ONCE when he was already sloshed... that's not necessarily possession, is it? You're at a party, you're gooned, someone starts passing a pipe, and you take a hit... not a felony in and of itself.

Goes back to the previous definitions of a user vs. an addict.
