Brace yourselves because this is going to come as a shock. Are you ready? There has been another political scandal. I know. I was shocked too.
This week it’s Toronto mayoral candidate Rob Ford. It has come to light that he has a criminal past. You’re all probably thinking “Oh, it’s just something small and insignificant” but it isn’t really. According to his record he has a DUI and drug charges. He has also been heard making anti-immigration comments. It’s not been a good few weeks for him. Ford sayt that he is still going to continue his campaign to become Toronto’s new mayor.
I’ve been wondering why he is continuing this campaign. I am also comparing this to the ending of Adam Giambrone’s campaign. I am also wondering why no one has “advised” Ford to bow out of the mayors race. Compare both the issues. Ford did drugs, drove while drunk and said some inappropriate things about immigrants. Giambrone had sex with a woman that wasn’t his wife.
You can see the similarities.
If Giambrone hadn’t left the race he would be on my list of people I might vote for. I’ve met him and he seems like a nice person. I don’t see why he had to leave because of what he did. Bill Clinton didn’t have to leave the presidency because of a similar incident. Neither did David Letterman. I know he’s not a politician but you get the idea.
