Ford to liars: “take me to court”

Posted on March 27th, 2013 2 great comments. Room for one more!

In response to the (somewhat) explosive allegations yesterday that Rob Ford is almost perpetually publicly plastered, the mayor responded by inviting his accusers to take him to court:

“It’s just lies after lies and lies, and I’ve called you guys pathological liars, and you are, so why don’t you take me to court? Let the courts decide. You guys are liars!”

I’m pretty sure Rob doesn’t read TCL, but I know his handlers do so this little tidbit of advice might find its way into his ear: when someone’s slandering or libeling you, it’s you who take them to court, not the other way around.

Also, it’s worthwhile to keep in mind that although the Star revealed the information, of you’re going to be suing anyone it should be the well-named and very public people who are sourced in the newspaper’s claims.

    Listening to Rob Ford’s vehement denials, Doug Ford’s vehement denials and Jerry Agar’s by-extension-vehement-denials, I’m left with little doubt any of them would understand what Bill meant when he said “Methinks (the lady) doth protest too much”.

    They probably wouldn’t understand his “fancy talkin'”.

What's on your mind?
