QUOTED: Rob Ford on oral sex [UPDATED]
I’m happily married. I have more than enough to eat at home, thank you very much.
—Rob Ford during a media scrum this morning, in response to an allegation that he told a woman who is not his wife that he was going to perform oral sex on her. The accusation, part of a police document released yesterday, comes from ex-staffer Isaac Ransom and referred to the events on the night of St. Patrick’s Day 2012. Ford vehemently denies saying any such thing. “The last thing was Olivia Gondek,” the mayor said this morning. “[The police document] says that I wanted to eat her pussy. Olivia Gondek. I’ve never said that in my life to her.” However, the mayor didn’t address whether he told Gondek, “I banged your pussy”—another claim in the police document—or whether he made a similar oral sex comment to a female security guard at city hall. It is very much worth noting that Robyn Doolittle of the Toronto Star tweeted last night that Gondek says the mayor has “never made comments of that nature to me.”
UPDATE: The Toronto Argonauts took to their official Twitter account this morning to chastise mayor Rob Ford for making the above lurid comments about oral sex while wearing their team jersey:
It’s well-known that the Mayor is a big fan and supporter of the game of football. The Toronto Argonauts organization is not in a position to comment on the manner of dress of public officials. The situation with respect to the Mayor and his leadership is unseemly at best. These latest remarks, while wearing our team’s jersey, are particularly disappointing given our organization’s work in the community to help youth deal with issues of bullying prevention. We hope for the benefit of the wonderful citizens of Toronto and this great city that this situation is resolved expeditiously.
