Crackgate Day 6: Rob Ford Fires Chief of Staff, Not Himself
K, this is getting a bit out of hand. As each day passes and the media awaits a statement from Toronto mayor Rob Ford either confirming or denying the video of him smoking crack, things at City Hall are heating up.
We thought Ford was going to continue to keep quiet, and maybe he’ll do so – but now it will be without his chief of staff Mark Towhey – because he fired him this afternoon. Who does he think he is? Stephen Harper? But while Wright resigned, that is not the case here. If Ford is trying to avoid the media’s attention, perhaps he shouldn’t fire his chief of staff amidst this unprecedented scandal.
