Rob Ford Sandro Lisi

Drug dealer alleges Rob Ford assaulted Sandro Lisi

Damning new allegations have surfaced regarding the night that a new drug tape of Rob Ford was filmed. According to a report in the Toronto Star, the mayor assaulted his friend and former driver Sandro Lisi on multiple occasions and hurled racial slurs in referring to recently departed Toronto Community Housing boss Eugene Jones as well as the dealer himself.

"'No n----- gets fired in my town. When I get re-elected that n----- is going to be back in charge,' Ford said, according to the dealer's account of the night... The Star met the 20-year-old man and an associate Thursday in Kingston. The man spent two hours going over his account of the night."

According to the report, Ford beat Lisi on three occasions, which left him "crying like a baby." The informant also claims that Ford pushed and kicked at his sister Kathy when she intervened during the attack. No one has corroborated these allegations, though Star reporter Kevin Donovan has now also viewed the three videos recorded that night, and confirms the presence of Lisi and Kathy Ford as well as the mayor's use of the pipe captured in the notorious screengrab published by the Globe & Mail and Gawker.
