Ford crack scandal “source:” I think we all know who you are, “source”

It’s an old trick: John Smith identifying himself as “a source close to John Smith.” Gets your message out, but it doesn’t really fool anyone.

Anyway: kudos to Wolk and the rest. Real loyalty isn’t telling a leader what they want to hear all the time. It’s telling them what they don’t want to hear, some of the time.

A source close to Kouvalis said he does not know if Ford uses drugs or abuses alcohol — just that the mayor has behaved erratically and is obviously unwell.

“Nick has openly told people that he doesn’t think Rob is going to make it for the next campaign, whether it’s drinking, putting on too much weight, whether Rob can handle the stress. He looks terrible,” said the source, who requested anonymity for fear of repercussions from the Fords.

The source said Kouvalis told the mayor he needed to “get healthy” long before March, when the Toronto Star reported that the mayor was asked to leave a military ball because organizers feared he was intoxicated, or May, when Star and Gawker.com reporters said they had viewed a cellphone video that appears to show the mayor smoking crack cocaine and making homophobic and racially charged statements.

Kouvalis told Ford he had to shape up back in February 2011, when the strategist left city hall, the source said.

The source also said the Fords have suggested on radio and elsewhere that Kouvalis is advising them through the video scandal, while he has had scant contact with Mayor Ford in months and Doug Ford “doesn’t listen to him.”

    Poor Hudak doesn’t know whether to shit or wind his watch. Should he attend Rob’s summer BBQ? Should he let Doug run as a PC in the next election? Should he just put a brown paper bag over his head because most people think he looks like a weasel?

    Bahahaha. Darryl Wolk??? Where do the Star get their sources? Proof that their “unsubstantiated” stories have no merit. Wolk is a nobody. One of hundreds of volunteers on Ford’s (and everyone else under the sun’s) campaign. He’s best known as a 5 foot tall grease bag who spends his time calling up media to get any plug he could get.
