Former Mayor Rob Ford is under fire once again.
In a report released today, the city’s Integrity Commissioner is recommending that City Council suspend the former Mayor’s pay for three days for allegedly using personal funds to advertise a campaign fundraiser.
The recommendation comes after it was discovered that Ford did not disclose the use of his own money to fund an advertisement for a campaign fundraiser that appeared in the Councillors constituency newsletter, the “Ward 2 Newsletter”.
A member of the public submitted a complaint to the city alleging that the inclusion of the fundraising advertisement was contrary to several articles within the Code of Conduct for Members of Council.
This situation isn’t new to the former Mayor. He received a warning from Toronto’s Integrity Commissioner back in 2011 for not disclosing his personal expenses.
If City Council chooses to follow this recommendation, Councillor Ford will forfeit three days worth of pay totaling $900. An additional stipulation was added to the course of action stating if Ford does not report all funds paid by him in relation to the newsletter by February 28th, his pay would be suspended for another three days.
