Rob ford Gets sued, goes partying
Rob Ford was seen striking a serious pose in the council chamber January 29 as news broke that he allegedly ordered the jailhouse beating of Scott MacIntyre, the estranged common-law husband of Ford's sister Kathy. The $1.2 million suit claims MacIntyre ended up with a broken leg because he said something the mayor took as a threat to expose his "long-standing" substance abuse and ties to criminals. Forty-eight hours later, Ford was partying up a storm in Vancouver, where he attended a funeral. He ended up getting ticketed by the RCMP for jaywalking while out on the town. Who gets busted for jaywalking on the pedestrian-friendly West Coast?
