Toronto’s mayor gets another big legal victory

Rob Ford is on a big winning streak with his legal battles. The Mayor of Toronto found out Monday that he will not face any charges after an auditor allegedly found discrepancies in his campaign finances from the 2010 election.

The city’s compliance audit committee voted 2-1 in Ford’s favour, opting against any prosecution.

“It’s a great day for democracy,” Ford said after the decision was announced. “Any time there was a doubt, we asked for clarification from election officials and we followed exactly what they said.” He did not take any questions afterwards.

An audit from his 2010 election campaign found that he exceeded spending by $40,168, which is approximately three per cent over his authorized limit, as well as other violations.

Ford’s lawyers have had plenty of work so far 2013. The mayor won an appeal in January, overturning a conflict of interest ruling that could have kicked him out from office.

Toronto’s mayor gets another big legal victory

    • Nothing to be proud of. He shouldn’t be in these messes in the first place.

  1. The city of Toronto seems to have been placed under a curse by this man, who at the best of times, resembles a bloated beached whale. He and his brother in arms have declared an ongoing war against all things that they don’t like. After voting to get rid of bike lanes, slash the budget of public libraries, and a whole basket case of other oddities, he thought nothing, of not only requisitioning a transit bus to transport his beloved football team to an important game, but dipped into some money from a charity event to help pay for their uniforms. Although Toronto has had its fair share of moronic imbeciles and bufoons posing as Mayors in the past, it doesn’t desrve to be saddled with this fat, highly over-rated, confrontational joker.

    • I’m trying to come up with the word that describes someone who takes offence at someone’s physical characteristics.

      • Derek,
        When you finally do find that word which describes my particular dislike of this stuffed, overweight, fart-bag, would you, for the edification of the verbally challenged, let the rest of us know. We are all anxiously waiting for the outcome.

  2. The city’s compliance audit committee.. who decides who gets appointed to that committee again?
