TORONTO — What do Mayor Rob Ford, U.S. President Barack Obama and Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop have in common?

They’re all now starring in a Republican attack ad in a New York primary race.

The new ad from Republican congressional candidate George Demos serves as a sign that Ford’s ongoing crack cocaine scandal has gained him such notoriety in the U.S. that his image would be easily recognized by Americans.

“Tired of politicians?” the ad asks as photos of Bishop, Obama and Ford drop onto the screen. “Then look at George Demos. He’s not a politician.”
