A new book alleges that Rob Ford's wife confided to someone that her husband didn't intend to give up "the blow" after he was elected the mayor of Toronto, the National Post reported.
“He still thinks he’s going to party,” Renata Ford allegedly told a man, identified as "John" in the book, in a Tim Horton's parking lot. The book's author, one of the Toronto Star reporters who has chronicled Ford's exploits, wrote that she heard a recording of the conversation, and Ford's wife didn't know she was being taped.
“He thinks that he, oh, you know, ‘I’ll get off the pills, but I’m not giving up the blow,'" Renata Ford said, as reported in the book, "Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story."
Ford's lawyer had denied to the Toronto Star that the conversation occurred, according to the Post.
Correction: This post has been updated to correct that a Toronto Star reporter, not a Toronto Sun reporter, authored the book on Ford.
