Mark Towhey, Rob Ford’s former chief of staff, is writing a tell-all

Mark Towhey was Rob Ford’s chief of staff from 2012 until about a week after the start of the crack scandal, in May 2013, and his firing is already the stuff of legend. Ford reportedly dismissed his once-trusted lieutenant after Towhey advised the mayor to get help for his obvious substance problems—advice that wasn’t ultimately heeded until far too late. Now, it seems Towhey is writing a tell-all memoir of his time spent working for the mayor, beginning with the 2010 municipal election. The Star reports that the book will be released a few days before this year’s election, on October 21. Anyone hoping for damning new details may be disappointed, though. The publisher’s description says that the book “is not the account of a man eager to get revenge.”
