I think Fraud is rapidly approaching the point where he'd make his Melness look respectable - even during his final days in office.
And Ford's popularity continues to plummet. 37%.

Mind you, Hazel sitting on top after what, 2 episodes of inappropriate behaviour wrt conflict of interest during her tenure speaks volumes about the electorate.
That's not the way approval ratings work. Ford's down from a 60% approval rating earlier this year.
I think the electorate there tuned out of politics a long time ago - in fact I think that's the reason why H is so popular - they don't have to do the dirty work since H is doing it for them. Don't worry though, the day of reckoning is near, and I am not at all sanguine about the chances of a place that is so rusty at citizens being engaged in the governance of their city.

And I like Ford's veiled threat, "... I just hope someone else doesn’t do that again because I don’t want anything serious to happen." Just hope no more bespectacled, middle aged Warrior Princesses show up on his doorstep on Halloween. Who knows what might happen? And when are we going to get to hear the 911 call recording?

The comment itself is of course awful and embrassing in terms of IR, but with little impact on the governance of the city itself. Fraud on the other hand is only a year into his mandate and how many questionable ethical lapses with real impact have we had? That's not to mention the ongoing investigation into his campaign itself - let's just say, honest mistakes tend not to be complicated in execution.

Oh I hope something happens - you bet it's going to be on National TV for all to see. No more "he said, she said" weaseling out of his own behaviour.And I like Ford's veiled threat, "...

Regardless of all else, Ford has unwittingly provided the Canadian comedy/satire shows with some great fodder. I hope for his own sake that he is prepared.
