So here’s another thing Doug Ford has in common with Donald Trump: They’re both philanderers.
At least that’s the latest tattle from Toronto, where the Globe and Mail and Toronto Star are in moist pursuit of a story that Doug has a mistress stashed in a condo in Etobicoke.
Ms. X, we are unreliably informed, is not only Doug’s legover companion, but also a Tory candidate in the June 7 provincial running of the reptiles.
According to opposition operatives, she’s been set up in a plush condo and drives a Mercedes C300, all paid for by Doug.
She’s just a few years older than the eldest Ford daughter, Krista, 27. (Apparently, Doug has a passion for K’s. In addition to Krista, his other daughters are Kayla, Kara and Kyla. Oh, and the wife, Karla.)
Speaking of Karla, she’s been mysteriously absent from the campaign; MIA since she appeared with him at the podium on victory night last March.
Doug’s alleged horizontal exploits bring back fond memories of former premier Mike Harris, another old-timey Tory family values crusader, who was getting a legover with Sharon Dunn whilst still very much married to second wife Janet, circa 2000.
Meanwhile, Ford campaign manager Kory Teneycke is said to be soiling his undersilks and has already ordered up polling on the potential damage if the story gets out.
Rest assured, Kory, Doug’s secret is safe with us.
