53 People Who Think We Should Just ‘Leave Rob Ford Alone’

According to three journalists who separately viewed a clear and well-lit cell-phone video, Toronto mayor Rob Ford smokes crack. Many see this as kind of a problem. Crack is not only illegal, but it also tends to distract one from one’s obligations and responsibilities — like, say, running a city of 2.6 million people. But there are some people who just aren’t interested in whether Ford, the mayor of Canada’s largest city, smokes crack with Somali crack dealers in his spare time. They want everyone to leave Rob Ford alone. 

Can we just pause here to appreciate that last one? Just take that in for a moment. Okay, onward.
