In a shocking development, Rob Ford tried to delay his campaign audit—again
Rob Ford is a man who knows how to stall, but even his very best tactics couldn’t delay his upcoming audit appeal hearing any further. (You may recall that Ford’s campaign finances are, to put it nicely, not exactly sterling.) According to Fair Elections Toronto, the mayor forced a court date this morning to request that the April hearing be pushed to November, but it would seem the judge has denied him. The Fair Elections folks, who pushed for the audit, say Ford’s legal team has ignored repeated requests to establish a schedule to proceed—and they’ve got the phone and email records to prove it. Between this audit and the Clayton Ruby case, it looks like Ford could spend a good portion of his remaining two years as mayor in court. Good thing he’s gotten an early start on his campaigning for the next election. Read the entire release [Fair Elections Toronto] »

As soon as that Portlands fiasco hit last year I was pretty sure Doug would be going to jail before his term was up. Now I have the feeling Rob may be there before him. Not for this campaigning stuff, but something more sinister.
The Fords’ insistence on subway construction in the face of both the opposing evidence and opposition among Council members has a bad smell. The time in coming to let the bad air out.
