Rob Ford Makes Lewd Comments After New Accusations
Police reports detail new accusations that Ford sexually harassed a co-worker, among other allegations. He now says he's seeking help.
The Rob Ford saga continues. Just one day after this:
COUNCILOR DENZIL MINNAN-WONG: "Have you purchased illegal drugs in the last two years?"
FORD: "Yes, I have." (Via Sky News)
There was this regarding allegations he offered to perform oral sex on a co-worker.
The allegations that Ford solicited a co-worker come from 500 pages of newly released police reports.
"Among the accusations, Ford guzzled vodka and then drove his car, he had a woman who appeared to be a prostitute visit his office, and he made lewd suggestions to one of the women on his staff." (Via CNN)
While wearing a football jersey, Ford told reporters outside his office he will now take legal action against the co-workers making the accusations.
FORD: "It's unfortunate that I have to take legal action. I don't appreciate people calling Alana a prostitute. … This is very disturbing against my wife." (Via BBC)
Oh, and Ford is still adamant about staying in office — something the city council has no authority to change. Ford said he's seeking help from health care professionals, but he wouldn't elaborate.
