(Newser) – Just another day in the life of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford: He's being sued by his sister's ex-boyfriend for allegedly conspiring to have the man beaten in jail. A lawsuit submitted by Scott MacIntyre alleges the mayor was behind an assault at a Toronto jail in March 2012 that was intended to keep MacIntrye quiet about Ford's abuse of alcohol and drugs. The lawsuit alleges MacIntrye knew about Ford's alcohol and drug use and claims he was threatened with "dire consequences" if he did not remain quiet.
"They wanted to know if I was going to do the right thing—was I going to keep my mouth shut," MacIntyre tells the Globe and Mail. He got attacked in a jailhouse shower and ended up with a broken leg and shattered teeth. Ford's lawyer, Dennis Morris, said today that the allegations are "without fact or foundation." Ford offered no comment when reporters asked him about the lawsuit. "Remind me again, how the hell is Rob Ford still in office?" asks Jordan Yerman at the Vancouver Observer.
How ironic. Pretty soon we'll be reading about Ford GETTING a jailhouse beatdown.
I’m guessing the alcohol and drug abuse allegations may leak out sooner or later...bwahahaha
Yet he does not quit and wear a paper bag on his head, unlike too many GOP.
Can a crackhead alcoholic be a conservative?? If the people of Toronto voted for his campaign promises, I think they are getting shortchanged.
Best Mayor in North America, I wish we had him in San Francisco. He could issue beat downs on all the locals.
Maybe he and Justin Bieber can share a cell together.

That’s just stupid — he should have had him released, then taken out in the sticks, killed, and dumped. Geez. What a stoner.
