You're not far off, only the skeleton might be more literal - there may be at least one murder connected to the video.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: PLEASE GO HERE AND READ BEFORE YOU CONSIDER DONATING. Our confidence that we can consummate this transaction has diminished.

I'm as interested in schadenfreude about dick politicians as much as the next asshole, but this seems to fall into the category of lighting money on fire. Who really gives a crap about watching the mayor of Toronto smoke crack? I bet Toronton, Torontoanian, Toronters don't even care that much.

Indiegogo has a "Flexible Campaign" option that lets you keep what you raise if you don't reach your goal.  You pay 9% vs. 4% of campaigns that reach goals.

From their FAQ:

"If your campaign is set up as Flexible Funding, you will be able to keep the funds you raise, even if you don't meet your goal. If your campaign is set up as Fixed Funding, all contributions will be returned to your funders if you do not meet your goal. Flexible Funding campaigns that meet their goal are only charged 4% as our platform fee, whereas campaigns that do not meet their goal are charged 9%."

You mean over 47%? A whole 0.2% less than Pantalone and Smitherman combined?

The idea that Smitherman would have easily won without Pantalone running is just silly. It would have been closer, but the idea that you can just add up the votes of left leaning candidates is ignorant at best.

Anthony Smith was there that night but was shot to death on March 28th.

This is confusing to me, also...the guy from Ghost Hunters is apparently trying to raise a crap ton of cash through a kick starter to make a board game or something.  He has alot more money than most people so why would anyone pitch in to help him?  I don't get it at all...someone I am friend's with on facebook keeps sharing his pleas for money and I hope they were not stupid enough to contribute.

This was posted in the comments of the crackstarter recently:

oakstreet said 36 minutes agojust got this via email:
Somalis already in NY - arrived before story broke to not raise ire of border agents at the advice of gawker
Celebrity bankroller angel sweeps in to top up the crackstarter before midnight. (hint: #winning!)
Video is released thurs. Doug Ford is svengali behind everything.
Smith murdered to cover up truth as he was Rob's crack dealer.
Please tell people on crackstarter to stop obfuscating about donations to addiction centers & video not existing.


So there is still hope.

"Those dicks who had to call in the army to shovel their snow"

/Ottawan


That episode was even more dickish than people realise. We needed the army to shovel the snow (and we actually did need them - we got a shiatload of snow in 2 storms, and ambulances and stuff were immobilised) because the idiots who ran the city sold off a bunch of the equipment, figuring that private contractors would buy it and could be hired to supplement the reduced city crews. Instead, the equipment was bought by more sensible cities that understood that winter is coming. Also, they decided to save money by only having the crews on call from December 1 instead of November 15, and the first storm hit at the end of November. It hadn't been cleaned up yet when we got the second one.

And yet that crew, which apparently forgot that it snows in Canada, look like geniuses compared with the current administration. And somehow 36% of the public still supports the mayor. I'm not sure if that changes even if the tape shows up. I'd start thinking about moving back to my hometown of Montreal, but at least in Toronto we can drink the water.

Apparently it depends on the test.

Unfortunately for us, Ford went from longish hair in April to getting a buzz cut just around the time of this coming out...  Completely coincidental I'm sure, but it does mean you can't do any hair tests.

However, from reading a few things here and there, while coke only stays for a few days it does cause the doomathingy levels to go (up/down) which can be detected up to 6 or 8 weeks after consumption if it's a chronic user.

I suspect it's one of the reasons why he waited a week before saying ANYTHING about the video.

As long as he stays clean his drug test will come up negative. Only pot can be detected for longer than a week do to it being fat-based.

He was never going to submit to a drug test.

I have no doubt in my mind that the tape is real and he's in it. Just look at his track record and of his siblings.

The Globe and Mail article mentioned above is a great read. The four siblings are messed up.  Domestic abuse, murder, kidnapping, drug dealing and white supremacists? That is awesome on so many levels.
