During a radio show interview on Thursday, troubled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford refuted all allegations claiming that he offered $5,000 and a car for the notorious crack video, asserting that it is an “outright lie.” Ford was speaking to The Sports Junkies show on 106.7 The Fan, i.e. a Washington, D.C., radio station. The mayor of Canada’s largest city has faced extremely serious allegations, made damning confessions and suffered extraordinary consequences in the recent past.
However, Mayor Ford has now been left to face yet another wave of allegations that were unearthed on late Wednesday. According to the newly released wiretaps and police interviews, Ford is suspected to have offered $5,000 and a car in exchange for the crack video weeks before the story of the video broke in the media. At the time, the story also stated that Ford’s friend Alexander “Sandro” Lisi traded marijuana for the mayor’s stolen cellphone and that Ford may have used heroin. Noticeably, none of these allegations have been tested in court, although the Mayor has admitted to smoking crack cocaine and buying illegal drugs since being elected mayor.
