toronto rob ford tie

Rob Ford's crack confession tie sells for $16K

Someone just dropped $16,100 on the football themed tie Rob Ford wore when he admitted smoking crack cocaine in November 2013. The mystery bidder, identified as a***a on the site, beat out 41 other people for the chance to spend the equivalent a year's rent on the 20-year-old accessory.

In a somewhat disturbing move, the former mayor has been auctioning off his used clothes on eBay: the sweatshirt he wore in that infamous photo outside 15 Windsor Rd. with murder victim Anthony Smith, his Don Bosco Eagles jacket, and various sports jerseys--all complete with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Don't worry, $1,610 is going to cancer research. The rest? Who knows.
