Rob Ford is the democratically elected mayor of Toronto, whether you like it. But a lot of people have a problem with democracy, and really don’t like Rob Ford. So they will apparently stop at nothing to get him removed as mayor.
Gawker claims that they have seen a video of Rob Ford smoking crack, and they have mounted an IndieGogo campaign to raise $2oo,000 to pay drug dealers for the video. For some reason they don’t want to spend their own money, but they’ll happily take yours. Don’t worry though. If it doesn’t work out, they’ll give all of your money to charity (but keep the charitable receipt?).
Now I suppose that I’m contributing to this idiocy just by linking to it, but it seems to me that paying drug dealers (not the most trustworthy lot I would assume) for information to bring down a democratically elected politician that you just don’t like crosses just about the last line there is in journalism.
Disgust isn’t even a strong enough word. This is beyond abhorrent.
