You can’t write a better comedy script than this.
Using the slogan “Ford More Years,” Ford was the first to jump into the 2014 race and he did it with both of his dancing feet.
The incumbent has been fodder for comedians and talks show hosts worldwide for his crack smoking and other antics.
The Toronto Star asks how Ford expects citizens to trust him with his current reputation.
His reaction was pure Ford.” My track record speaks for itself. If you want to get personal that's fine. I'm sticking to my record, and talk is cheap," he said.
Ford continued by saying the stories about him "were exaggerations or simply untrue."
Ford also says he saved Toronto "a billion dollars" and boasted he had the top attendance record on the city council.
Records show his attendance was actually below normal.
