rob ford crack video

Rob Ford crack video finally made public

The Rob Ford crack video gripped Toronto from the time its existence was first reported to the end of his mayoralty, and yet few people had ever actually seen the thing thanks to a publication ban related to Sandro Lisi's extortion trial.

Now, with charges dropped against Sandro Lisi, that ban has been lifted and the tape is finally available for everyone to view. Much of the intrigue related to the video has evaporated in light of Ford's death, but given the hoopla surrounding its initial discovery, I suspect there will be enough residual curiosity to drive most to give it a watch.

There's no surprises here. What happens in the video is quite close to the reports offered by Gawker and the Toronto Star (though some minor details are different). If there's anything remarkable here, it's just how incoherent Ford is as Elena Basso seems to goad him throughout the 1:46 minute clip.

Now it just seems sad rather than shocking.
