Now it’s just a question, not a statement of fact. Our corpulent Overlard Overlord seems to be running into some trouble with our Provincial Municipal Election Laws in the Toronto Election. A full audit was order by the three member panel on friday to see if he broke any election laws. The Toronto Star has the full story here - Audit ordered into Mayor Ford’s campaign financing.
Now here are some of the funniest quotes from Ford’s Lawyer, Tom Barlow
There’s nothing in our view that merits any concern on the part of any elector in terms of how the finances were arranged - Tom Barlow
Shorter Tom Barlow - Your Honour,my client is completely Innocent! So there is no need for you to look into this, none at all. That is why he doesn’t want anyone looking into his campaign finances. There is nothing to see, so you don’t need to look and we expect you to throw this case out,…
I certainly know that Rob Ford has nothing to hide and he’ll ultimately co-operate, and has been cooperating, with whatever process is appropriate under the Municipal Elections Act. - Tom Barlow
Short Tom Barlow - Well if you insist on looking You Honour, my client has nothing to hide, and he will cooperate fully. After all he has nothing to hide and only guilty people need lawyers,… errr what was the question again?
It looks like it’s just a throughput of cash - Tom Barlow argued
Shorter Tom Barlow - Doug Ford Holdings was just a supplier to the campaign, and the interest free, 365 day terms account is absolutely standard fair.
“A throughput of cash”, is this like an In and Out? These conservatards seem really keen on these fancy foot work, soft shoe shuffle of election financing, eh?
Now what could Jabba the Ford receive if found guilty of breaking the Provincial Municipal Elections Act by some Liberal appointed judge, with a political leftwing adgenda to push? Well Jabba the Ford could be fined, which I’m sure Doug Ford Holdings could then find a way to expense that, or Jabba the Ford could be the first Mayor of Toronto’s history to Kicked Out of Office for Election Campaign Finance Corruption.
Lets keep a happy thought in our heads, m’kay?
