Tenacious Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Continues with his political responsibilities while staff resigns and no signs of alleged video.
In an almost surreal odyssey of political suspense, Rob Ford and the Gawker crowdfunding campaign to “purchase” a video continues into a dark spiral while the soap opera progresses. One crowdfunding campaign supporter has even created a “Crackometer” graph: detailing the timeline of the donations for the crowdfunding campaign.
Earlier today it was “reported” that Ford had resigned – only to be recanted in a later missive as the Rob Ford resigning happened to be an unfortunately named “other” politician who is based a bit south of Toronto.
While the lords of snark at Gawker have continued their prosaic quest with ongoing coverage of the saga, Ford has continued to maintain his innocence as the rumored video is no where to be seen. Some are calling for Ford’s head even if the allegations are not true.
The crackstarter crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo which truly drove the media into a frenzy surpassed the goal of $200,000. This was the reported price requested by those in possession of the alleged evidence of malfeasance.
To date the funds remain in a state of limbo. Gawker messaged prior to the end of the campaign they were not convinced they would actually be able to acquire the video so donors beware. Eventually if the video is not delivered – all funds will be donated to charity.
