Toronto Mayor Rob Ford announced Thursday his intention to take legal action against multiple former staffers for making false allegations about his behavior, and used lewd language when discussing his former employees to reporters on live television, CTV News reported.
Ford’s ex-staff members, including Isaac Ransom, George Christopoulos and Mark Towhey, were cited in court documents released Wednesday as describing the mayor’s drunk driving and cocaine use to the police.
Ford said that he “can’t put up with it anymore,” and was therefore forced to take legal action.
“Oh, and the last thing was Olivia Gondek. It says that I wanted to eat her p****. I’ve 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. Thanks very much,” Ford said to reporters.
He also said allegations that he brought prostitutes to City Hall office were false.
“Enough is enough, guys, okay? So if you were offended, I’m not apologizing because put yourself in my shoes if someone said that about your husband or your wife, okay?” he said.
Ford first came under fire when a video of him smoking crack cocaine was leaked to the press. Ford then admitted to using the illgal drug, and reports of Ford’s illegal conduct have snowballed since then.
