Toronto Mayor Wants to Be a Sugar Daddy?

Toronto mayor Rob Ford has become known for a lot of things: cocaine user, anger man­age­ment can­di­date, get­ting drunk in pub­lic, and now, a self-professed sugar daddy? The politi­cian recently revealed what he’s plan­ning to get his wife for Christ­mas this year, and it sounds like he’s think­ing right along the lines of your aver­age sugar daddy: “Women love money. Give ‘em a cou­ple thou­sand bucks and they are happy.” That being said, he’s plan­ning on giv­ing Mrs. Ford “a nice cheque” because she just “wants her cash.” Not to worry; he’s plan­ning on dress­ing up the money with a “nice bas­ket of flowers.”

Ford has been in the cen­ter of a media frenzy since a video sur­faced of him allegedly smok­ing crack, but his wife has shied away from any com­ments or pub­lic appear­ances. Although, she did stand by his side when he pub­licly apol­o­gized for mak­ing an inap­pro­pri­ate com­ment that revealed pri­vate infor­ma­tion about their sex life. In response to an ear­lier accu­sa­tion that he told a female employee he wanted to per­form oral sex on her, the mayor responded with, “I would never do that. I’m hap­pily mar­ried. I’ve got more than enough to eat at home.”

We aren’t the only ones who think Ford might be an under­cover sugar daddy. A pop­u­lar sugar daddy match­mak­ing site extended an invite to him for their Christ­mas party in Toronto, although a rep for the site main­tained that they invited the mayor so that he could see “peo­ple in Toronto mix­ing together and going to an event where peo­ple are going to show up.”

What do you think: Would Rob Ford make a good sugar daddy?
