Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he is taking legal action against the former staffers who made stunning allegations about the mayor in a police document, saying he consorted with escorts and used sexually explicit language to a woman working for him.
In a profane media scrum aired live on television that left journalists gasping, Ford, wearing a Toronto Argos jersey, denied many of the allegations laid forth in the court documents, although he admitted to occasionally drinking and driving.
He was particularly angry about his staffers telling police that they thought a young friend of his was a prostitute.
I dont appreciate people calling Alana a prostitute, I never had a prostitute here, Im very happily married at home, he said. Shes a friend and it makes me sick that people are saying this.
The mayor said he would be suing his former chief of staff, Mark Towhey, former press secretary George Christopolous and former communications officer Isaac Ransom for the comments they made to police in court documents made public Wednesday.

He's lost it. He's completely lost it.
Oh Canada. LOL
You stay classy Toronto...
Hoser set me up, eh?
This guy rides the short bus, don’t he?
“although he admitted to occasionally drinking and driving. “
And that Crack thing.
I think the Argos might be wanting to think about a name-change now...
Mr. Ford is eventually going to be “hoarably sorey” about what he has done.
Left-wing media lost it.
Won`t be happy and will not relent until Ford commits suicide
Wow. This is just so, well, un-Canadian.
What he said about feline cuisine is possibly the most crass mayoral utterance ever!
To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.
” although he admitted to occasionally drinking and driving. “
Probably only drank on the way to work, and on the way home.
The Crack offsets the alcohol. At least that’s what alcoholic crack addicts tell me.
Next stop, meth!
George Smitherman, the guy that lost to Ford had been in charge of a big healthcare computer system rollout (eHealth Toronto). The project was a dismal failure and resulted in huge cost overruns. The project was apparently awarded in a no-bid contract, and featured many high-priced consultants.
