Rob Ford Files for Re-election Bid

From Slate:

Rob Ford registered Thursday for the 2014 mayoral election — and made it clear that he will try to run on his fiscal record while ignoring concerns about his character. As he promised, Ford was the first major candidate to sign up, on the first day of the campaign period. Ford’s slogans in 2010 were “respect for taxpayers” and later “stop the gravy train.” He said Thursday that his slogan this time is “Ford more years.”

His comments reflected the unrepentant message of that play on words. Asked how people can ever trust him again, after a year in which he was revealed to have lied about crack cocaine use, he said: “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. You’re going to see action like you’ve never seen before.”
