Eating Habits

On police reports that had Rob Ford cavorting with prostitutes, snorting coke, taking oxy, swilling vodka and telling one former staffer that “I banged your pussy,” Mayor Ford responded this morning: “Olivia Gondek said that I wanted to eat her pussy, I never said that in my life to her. I would never do that. I’m happily married. I’ve got more than enough to eat at home.”

Also, his friend isn’t a prostitute, apparently. From the Toronto Star

He was particularly angry about his staffers telling police that they thought a young friend of his was a prostitute.

“I don’t appreciate people calling Alana a prostitute, I never had a prostitute here, I’m very happily married at home,” he said. “She’s a friend and it makes me sick that people are saying this.”

The quotes are in this video. But if you’ll note Ford also says he’s going to sue the people who told the cops he snorted cocaine and smoked crack – something that doesn’t seem possible under Canadian law. But who knows?

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
