You might think that the Tea Party in the US has cornered the market on crazy Conservatives, but our neighbors up north have legislators like mayor Rob Ford. Rob Ford likes to accuse the media of being Socialists, he ran on the idea of cutting government waste, he demonized bike lanes, and most recently someone came forward with a possible video of Rob Ford smoking crack with his crack dealer. The Gawker picked up the story and Youtube has been getting some traffic lately from all types of Rob Ford videos. The tipster who is trying to cash in on the video of Ford sent a clip as proof of the wacky mayor having a bit too much fun standing next to two people, one of whom was killed in a recent gang-land style shooting outside of a nightclub.
Gawker has targeted Rob Ford for his humorous behavior in the past, but now they are looking to raise the money in order to purchase this video in an event they are calling ‘Crackstarter‘. They are seeking $200,000 to purchase and publish the tape.
I went through quite a few of them, and this guy really is a peach. Here was one that mashed up some of his better moments in politics. (Warning… Some language NSFW)
