Doug Ford angered over fake ‘win a date’ with his daughter contest


TORONTO – City councillor Doug Ford is irate and threatened to “hunt these folks down” after a fake fundraising contest was posted on Facebook promising a date with his daughter.

“I think they are disgusting human beings,” Ford told reporters in city hall on Tuesday. “I will spend every penny to hunt these guys downs.”

Ford’s anger is directed at a “Ford Nation” Facebook post giving anyone attending Mayor Rob Ford’s campaign fundraiser event on May 8th a chance to be entered into a draw to win a date with Krista Ford.

“Win a date with the Mayor’s beautiful niece Krista Ford,” the post wrote. “Help Rob Ford stop the gravy train from returning to city hall!,”

The post indicated that tickets to the event cost $300 each, $225 of which will be given back as a result of a “rebate from the city of Toronto.”

“Put yourself in my shoes. Someone goes after your kids, your girls that are helpless and that can’t defend themselves. Come after me rather than being a coward,” Ford said.

“They hide behind a computer. They obviously are too much of cowards to come out.”

The mayor’s brother also alleges people have attempted to attack the Ford’s business at Deco Labels & Tags.

“They come after our business, they try to hack into our computers, they come after my mother, they come after my children, say how they are going to sodomize my daughters,” he said.

Ford says he has contacted Facebook to have the post removed.

“They can get personal with Rob and I, just leave my family alone.”
