Do I even need to say it?

I’m saying this moments before Rob Ford has a news conference Ford-capture_20131022_150613officially admitting he smoked crack while in office.

When politicians do something illegal, they should quit. As if I had to say it. And they should probably be arrested and charged by the police, promptly.

I apply the same penalty to politicians who tell substantial lies.

In this case, as is not infrequent, Ford did both.

Rob Ford is not alone.

 

* I changed the headline of this replacing the word “Quitting” with “Resigning”, because I want to make it clear that resigning is job 1. Quitting his addictions is job 2.
