The question is how long before he screws up again. I say within one month.

Serious?
Please tell me a period of time when he wasn't screwing up?
Just because there's no vids yet, doesn't mean more aren't coming out, and that he isn't starring in one as we speak.

He's out of the monkey suit and now dressing like, well...

Ford is wearing jeans and a hoodie, not a velour tracksuit. Hardly unusual in Bracebridge. First we make fun of him because he wears a suit when casual clothes would suffice and now we make fun of him because he's wearing casual clothes instead of a suit?

He's not really rehabbing. They tucked him away for a couple of months until the latest scandals fade away.

He's out of sight during the provincial election, only. They want to keep Rob Ford from talking. Getting an endorsement from Rob Ford may hurt Tim Hudak. However, for those who follow the news or the internet, already know about the Hudak and Ford connections.

No we make fun of him for being incapable of telling the truth. And for saying he's in rehab but posing for photos away from the Greenstone spa every weekend.
And for smoking crack. And for being an alcoholic. And for lending his car to a woman who was then stopped for drunk driving. And for having hookers visit him at city Hall. And for stories like:

Nobody sticks up for people like I do, every f---ing k--e, n----r, f---ing w-p, d-go, whatever the race. Nobody does. I’m the most racist guy around. I’m the mayor of Toronto.”
On a roll, Ford continues to spew invective that may be the worst published yet. At one point he makes a rude comment about his mother.
His tirade is interrupted by a call from Dennis Morris, Ford’s lawyer. Morris voices immediate concern that Ford is driving and tells him to pull over. Ford does not respond kindly. Morris suggests the police may be tailing him.
“The cops are f---ing right behind me. They are, it’s fine,” Ford says.
Morris tells Ford he cannot be driving drunk.
To which Ford responds, “Yeah, you never had your f---ing kids taken away.”
(Asked this week if he recalled the incident and telephoning Ford, Morris said he believes his client was parked at the time.)
Ford eventually pulls into a park near his home in Etobicoke, according to an account of the evening. Lisi arrives, driving his black Range Rover. (Lisi is facing drug trafficking and extortion charges in connection with an alleged attempt to retrieve the embarrassing crack video. No accomplice has been charged. The Star reported recently that at another late-night event, Ford pummelled Lisi , his friend, until Lisi cried.)
According to an account of the evening, drugs are present as the men meet in the park. An hour passes. Ford and Bellissimo drive to Ford’s home, with Lisi in tow driving his Range Rover. From here on, there is no known audio recording of the night.
The front walkway to the Ford house leads to a modest front door. At about 10 p.m. that night, Ford and his pals arrive. Ford has a bag of McDonald’s food in his hand. Ford jiggles the front door and then kicks the door open. He, Lisi, Bellissimo and another man step in.
“Don’t worry guys, my kids aren’t here,” Ford says.
For no apparent reason, Ford turns on Bellissimo and hits him squarely in the face twice — boom, boom — forgetting that he has a bagful of Big Macs in his hand. Burgers and fries scatter. Ford makes Bellissimo pick them up.
Down the stairs they go. Ford’s wife Renata is on the couch, a tired lounger that has been described to the Star by paramedics and firefighters who have attended calls at the house over the past two years. Renata is smoking a joint.
“You’re a f---ing idiot,” Renata says.
Enraged, Ford rummages for his Don Bosco coaching jacket. “It’s where I keep my weed,” he tells people in the room. Ford turns on his wife, screaming that she has taken his drugs. Standing there quietly are Lisi and Bellissimo.
To a visitor, Ford says, almost offhanded, “You can f--- her if you want, in front of me.”
Nobody speaks. The comment is ignored by Ford’s wife. Men in the room are shocked.
“It’s okay,” Ford burbles. “She lets me f--k girls in front of her all the time.”

But I accept your point, a 45 year old gangster has too much self-respect to be seen out in public in a hooded sweater like some low-level thug. Or our mayor.

The reason we saw DoFo (and his mother!!) at that Pinball event is pure and simple: optics. He's planning his campaign for mayor. They never do anything charitable (or even useful), despite all their hot air about public service.

We're not fooled, Doug, and we do NOT want you as our mayor.

Please tell me nobody else thinks he has more than a snow cone's chance in hell at becoming mayor.

I will predict "a" Mayor Ford will be running the show for four more years.
Unless the TO media actually starts taking some risks and divulging their info.
Or, if the cops are taking their time, so they can bring down DoFo as well.
Then, maybe, just maybe you'll have a different most political family running things.

I don't have any specific knowledge about what Donovan may have said about the H.A., but generally speaking...

It's well known that H.A. would care tremendously about virtually *any* situation, provided they were paid their asking price to care.


Sorry, I'm a few pages back. Donny Peterson, president of the HA, stated he supports Ford. He was interviewed.

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/12/04/hells-angels-rob-ford-photo_n_4384104.html

I was a little shocked at first too, then it all began to make sense. The Ford's very likely have friends or acquaintances in the HA. They also have relationships with the mob (Ford's latest picture with the ex-mob bosses being just one example) and some ground level dealers. Also, back in the days the HA used to run the strip joints (I don't know how big that business is for them now). The connection to the present day strip/escort clubs isn't surprising at all. A lot of these people either know each other, or have heard of each other, at the very least they know who is important and who is not. Ford is the mayor, he can do a lot for them in many different ways, of course they want to protect him.

Back to the last page for me to catch up. Sorry for the interruption.

While there are more things than I can count to make fun of him for, being an alcoholic is not one of them. As someone with several family members who struggle with alcoholism, I find that very offensive.

I just don't see it. Doug doesn't have the interest (beyond mom's commands, keeping the job at Deco and a generous trust fund), the thick skin or the motivation for Chief Magistrate. Even as a fallback position for when Rob relapses, I don't see it. The Council Chamber will be Ford-free in November.

I think it's pretty safe to assume we all know that.. The fall after he's back will be epic. This is his last shot with what's left of Ford Nation willing to look past all his bull shit and he is going to F it up.

This.

We ain't seen nothin' yet, folks.

Are you offended at me for mocking Rob being an alcoholic, or at Rob for denying it?!

Rob Ford: 'I'm not an alcoholic, I'm not a drug addict'

I've known enough alkies also to know that rehab is the beginning of long-term treatment, it isn't the cure that the Fords are going to try to pretend when he returns to the city. And I'll make fun of them for trying that, too.

And remember, too--the revelations over the past week that there may very well be trouble in Decoland--not just over conflicts of interest (*it's in the past, folks"), but over slipshod management, Randy being no Doug Jr. (let alone Doug Sr.), etc. And even if it's being claimed that Deco still has a strong enough foundation, "too big to fail", etc--well, if the company earnings are going into stuff like prop fire engines, celeb junkets, rehab spas, etc...anything but actual company investment and upgrading---it's all going to leak through like a sieve. When it didn't have to, really.

For the Fords, mayoral victory was like winning the Powerball lottery. And they've gone about it like a proverbial Powerball winner, squandering *everything* within four years, including what "little" (which actually happens to be a lot) they had before their winnings...

I'm offended - highly offended - at you mocking him for it. And denial is one of the classic hallmarks of the disease.

Alcoholism is, indeed, a disease. It's like mocking somebody for having cancer.

with Doug less focused, Randy less capable and Rob uninterested, Deco has been suffering, I wonder if they were hoping the developing 'agreement' with R.R. Donnelley, would lead to an eventual merger with Donnelley. Freeing the lot of them to do what the hell ever they want to do with a good chunk of cash to do it with...
