It’s now become a battle of anonymous sources around Toronto City Hall as one has surfaced saying Rob Ford’s recently fired chief-of-staff Mark Towhey has been the person leaking false stories to the media:
The source within the Mayor’s Office told the National Post that Towhey “is trying to kill the mayor, politically and otherwise,” accusing him of leaking “revisionist history.”
“He’s got an axe to grind with the mayor here and with other people in the office. Certainly with Councillor Ford. He’s trying to blame everyone else for where he is,” the source said. (see here)
Not sure if this is a case of an “et tu, Brute” but I am convinced that it’s far past time for libel suits.
