Former mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson posted this picture to Facebook, where she commented:"Thought it was a friendly hello to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford at the CJPAC Action Party tonight until he suggested I should have been in Florida with him last week because his wife wasn't there. Seriously wanted to punch him in the face. Happy International Women's Day!"
TORONTO — Mayor Rob Ford is under fire from an old election foe for his alleged party antics that included grabbing her butt.
Sarah Thomson is now demanding an apology from Ford for the alleged assault.
The Women’s Post publisher and former mayoralty candidate took to Facebook in the wee hours of Friday morning and posted a photo of herself with Ford — the mayor looking rough with eyes closed and a large stain on his shirt — and blasted him for making a crude comment to her and touching her inappropriately at a Thursday night party held by the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee.
“He grabbed my ass, and I’m thinking what the heck is going on with him? I was so mad about it because this is somebody who knows how much I do for this city,” Thomson said on a radio show later Friday morning.
Thomson recounted her alleged exchange with Ford: “I asked him why he wasn’t at the mayor’s roundtable ... he was laughing and said, ‘I was in Florida, you should have been with me, my wife wasn’t there.’”
