Rob Ford's Christmas gift to his wife? A nice cheque, mayor says

TORONTO – Toronto’s controversial mayor is offering husbands tips on what to get their wives for Christmas.

Rob Ford told a Washington radio show that “women love money.”

He says “you give them a couple thousand bucks and they’re happy.”

Ford told the hosts of Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan that he planned to get his wife “some treats on the side,” but says “at the end of the day she wants her cash.”

He says he’ll be giving her “a nice cheque.”

Ford’s wife, Renata, who is seldom seen in public, came to her husband’s defence last month after he spouted an obscenity on live TV while denying allegations contained in police documents submitted in court.
