A new video of Toronto Mayor Rob "Laughable Bumblefuck" Ford has surfaced. For a change, the mayor is not smoking crack in this video. Instead, he's incredibly drunk, and vowing to graphically murder his critics, while swearing in a way that is surprising for its creativity and imaginativeness, if not its sobriety.
In this profanity-laden, 77-second video, Ford is seen pacing about the dining room of a house, threatening death to an unnamed enemy, ranting and gesticulating wildly. A person off camera, who is encouraging Ford’s behaviour, tells him to wait until “after the byelection,” an apparent reference to the byelection Ford wanted the city to hold to replace departed deputy mayor Doug Holyday.
The reference to the by-election puts the timing of the video sometime in August.
The need to replace deputy mayor Holyday came on August 1 when he became a provincial legislator. City council voted on August 26 to choose his successor by appointment instead of the $250,000 byelection Ford said was the more democratic choice.
Similar to the crack video the Star witnessed in May, Ford’s words switch rapidly from being easily heard to incomprehensible.
“I am a sick motherf--ker, dude,” says Ford, rolling up the cuffs of his collared shift up to his elbow. “Like no one’s gonna f--k around with me.”
At points in the video, Ford is incoherent and unintelligible. He appears to say that unidentified critics call him and his brothers “birds.”

Following from Wells Fargo’s 2,000,000-account fraud against its own customers — part of a decade-old pattern — the state of California has imposed sanctions on the bank, freezing it out of bond issues, brokerage business, and suspending all investment in Wells Fargo-issued securities.
Wells Fargo’s Board of Directors have finally exercised their right to claw back part of the hundreds of millions of dollars taken home by two senior executives who were compensated on the basis of the fraudulent earnings the bank took in while opening 2,000,000 secret accounts in their customers’ names, taking money out of those […]
When four named whistleblowers came forward to reveal that they’d been illegally fired from Wells Fargo for reporting that the company was experiencing widespread fraud, it was deja vu all over again: Wells also punished whistleblowers who sounded the alarm during the subprime crisis, and was thus so totally compromised that they needed a $36B […]
