Rob Ford Pussy

Ford denies escort claim, gets "enough to eat at home"

Rob Ford pulled no punches when addressing the latest round of allegations against him, including those which claim he was with an escort last St. Patrick's Day. The Mayor says he's taking legal action against former staffers Mark Towhey, George Christopolous, and Isaac Ransom and other witnesses to his alleged behaviour, including a waiter at Bier Markt, based on police interviews that were made public yesterday.

"I have no other choice. I'm the last one to take legal action. I can't put up with it anymore. I've named the names, litigation will be starting shortly - I've had enough," he told reporters outside his office.

Ford's use of language was startling in his comments about allegations he had a prostitute in his office at City Hall and made sexual comments towards female staffers.

"Olivia Gondek says I wanted to eat her pussy. I've never said that in my life to her, I would never do that. I'm happily married - I've got more than enough to eat at home."

"It hurts my wife when they're calling a friend of mine a prostitute."

Ford also admitted driving under the influence of alcohol to Natalie Alcoba of the National Post. "I might have had some drinks and driven, that's absolutely wrong ... I'm not perfect. Maybe you are, but I'm not."

None of the allegations contained in the police documents have been proven in court and Rob Ford has not been charged with a crime.
