Rob Ford’s new campaign video seemingly breaks campaign rules

Rob Ford's new campaign video seemingly breaks campaign rules

A new Rob Ford campaign video, released on the mayor’s website at some point in the past 24 hours, is earning media notice for a lot more than its handsome photography and soothing soundtrack. The video, which highlights the mayor’s obsessive, sometimes-inappropriate dedication to personally helping individual residents with small problems, appears to have been shot partially in his office at city hall. The candid shots make him look like a real go-getter, but they may also be a violation of the rules. City policy forbids people who are running for office from using city property to promote their candidacies. In the past, when the mayor has committed policy violations (or alleged violations) like this, he hasn’t faced much in the way of consequences.
