Ford still using city resources for football foundation

Posted on March 29th, 2013 2 great comments. Room for one more!

Hurray! Now that Rob Ford has been shown that laws and rules don’t apply to him, he’s once again free to use city resources for his own personal pet projects like the Rob Ford Football Foundation.

Yesterday it was revealed that Chris Fickel, a Ford office staffer, had sent out a solicitation email to Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School (note how those rich, elite public schools are not part of Ford’s ongoing efforts). Fickel is a regular part of Ford’s program, regularly appearing in photos with the teams, driving a city hall car to practices and games, etc.

In Fickel’s defense (not that he needs one), the email was sent from a GMail account. While it was time-stamped 4:37 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon, the fact that Rob Ford is regularly and mostly absent from his duties indicates that this may not actually have been done “on city time” (which, according to Ford, is any time he says).

And who gives a rat’s ass anyways — Rob Ford says it’s okay so just shut the fuck up and accept it.

    It’s always good to have a Plan B. And it’s good to see that Rob Ford (or his brother or Frank Nunziata or whomever) is planning ahead for when the Board at Don Bosco inevitably pulls the pin on His Grossness. So…out go the feelers in that wonderfully clumsy, ham-fisted way so near and dear to the chronically hard of thinking. But…but…the schools that are being approached…are they too full of fatherless hoodlums on the very fringes of society destined for jail if Coach Ford doesn’t step in and save them asap? Because if those schools aren’t full of hopeless hooligans now, you can bet they will be as soon as The Big Guy asseses the situation. Hey….Let’s Win This One For The Gripper!
