Toronto needs a mayor: Ford says convicted thug had “exceptional leadership skills” – on letterhead (updated)
He’s had convictions for threatening death to one woman, and assault and threatening bodily harm to a second woman. He entered into a peace bond with a third woman who accused him of assault and threatening death. He also has been charged three times with drug possession. But to Rob Ford, Sandro Lisi was just an “exemplary member of my campaign team where he displayed exceptional leadership skills.”
That’s all bad enough, of course. But isn’t it against the rules for Ford to help out this thug using letterhead from the Mayor of Toronto? Believe me: it is.
UPDATE: He’s clearly violated Article VI of the Code of Conduct. All that need happen, now, is a complaint: “No member of Council should use, or permit the use of City land, facilities, equipment, supplies, services, staff or other resources (for example, City-owned materials, websites, Council transportation delivery services and member of Council expense budgets) for activities other than the business of the Corporation.”
