TORONTO - An “out of control” Rob Ford that City Hall security described as “very intoxicated” threw a wild 2012 St. Patrick’s Day party inside the mayor’s office.
The night included Ford knocking a junior staffer off his feet, jumping on his giant Cut the Waist challenge scale, smashing his cellphone on the wall, crying, and even throwing racial slurs and his business cards at a cab driver, according to accounts from sources who were in the office that night.
A City Hall security e-mail released by the city Friday backs up the sources’ version of events. The e-mail describes Ford as “very intoxicated” and walking around the main floor of City Hall with a half-empty bottle of booze.
The shocking St. Paddy’s Day revelations come just a day after Toronto Police confirmed they now have the infamous video, which appears to show the mayor smoking crack cocaine.
“This was him at his worst,” one source told the Toronto Sun about the St. Patrick’s Day party.
