When I first heard that disgraced former city councillor and transit chairman Adam Giambrone was writing an article for Now, I figured he was finally publishing one of his sex stories. You know, detailed accounts of his romp with undergrad Kristin Lewis in his office. After all, I’m willing to bet that since the back pages of Now are filled with sex and hooker ads, an article about Gimabrone cheating on his girlfriend (and trying to write off dates using his city expense account) would be a perfect fit.
But no. Instead, Giambrone decided to write an article about Mayor Rob Ford. He wrote some drivel back in January, and now a follow up on how he is “committing political suicide“. And since the graphic school grads at Now have a fetish for Photoshop (remember the photo last spring of a almost naked Rob Ford?) they have a picture of Ford with a gun to his head.
I find it somewhat ironic that Gimabrone, who had to drop out because of his affairs, thankfully ending his run at the mayor’s office, is in ANY place to write about other people committing political suicide. (Then again, I guess he knows best.)
I, like many, had hoped that after being shamed out of politics – at least for the foreseeable future – that he would crawl under a rock and stay there. But sadly no. He continues to put his face out there, as a commentator on Sun News, occasionally on CP24 and writing about how people don’t like Rob Ford.
I’ve always believed that unless you are squeaky clean, you shouldn’t be telling others how to live their lives and what to do.
